Nakheel awards Al Furjan infrastructure contract
Dubai, August 18, 2014
Nakheel, a leading Dubai-based developer, has awarded a contract worth almost Dh59 million ($16 million) for major infrastructure works at its Al Furjan master community in Dubai.
The contract, awarded to Dubai-based Ghantoot Road Contracting, includes the construction of a new road, modifications to existing roads and utilities network connection for more than 30 mixed-use plots at the growing community. The work is due to be completed by Q3 2015.
The plots, on which third party developers will build a mix of apartment blocks, retail and hotel accommodation, are located in Al Furjan Phase 2, which spans 1.2 million sq m and also includes 500 third party villa plots, already sold by Nakheel.
Al Furjan Phase 1, with 800 homes, was completed last year and is now a thriving community with over 2,500 residents.
Last month, Nakheel handed a contract for Dh44 million to UAE-based Metac General Contracting for the construction of Al Furjan’s new, 10,000 sq m retail and recreation centre. Featuring a supermarket, more than other 20 shops, 10 cafes and restaurants, a swimming pool, sports courts and parking for 360 cars, the new facility is due to open in March 2016. - TradeArabia News Service
