Dubai: Airolink Building Contracting has been appointed lead contractor for the Art Centre project at Al Barsha in Dubai. The developer is MMS Gulf.
The Art Centre’s main construction package is anticipated to be finalised in April 2017, when it will become a specialised mall dedicated to furniture retailing. The first construction package started in November last.
“This project provides an answer to current gaps in sectors,” said Dr. Samer Al Omari, CEO and Partner of MMS Gulf. “After finalising the shoring stage, we were eager to sign the main construction package with a company with a stellar reputation and Airolink came out top of the pile.”
The project will host brands ranging from medium-end to high-end, covering more than 100 stores in lighting, accessories, home-appliances, kitchens, bathrooms, offices, flooring, textiles, decoration materials and furniture.
MMS Gulf has reached initial agreements with possible tenants after receiving hundreds of applications since the launch. “We are depending on a special strategy for leasing the spaces inside the Art Centre”, said Wael Al Kasem, MMS Gulf’s Business Development Manager. “The leasing applications exceeded the area of the mall … so we are being very careful in choosing the brands which will be hosted.”
