Ishraqah for Development has introduced a fast-track construction programme for The Onyx. Located near The Greens and Emaar Business
Park on Shaikh Zayed Road opposite Dubai Media City, nine floors of two towers of the iconic project have been completed so far, with the development expected to be completed by the last quarter of next year.
"Construction work at The Onyx is in full swing and we are working closely with Al Shafar General Contracting to ensure that we are on course for project completion by next year said Ammar Sweis, CEO of Ishraqah.
The Onyx is an exclusive three-tower mixed-use project costing Dh1.3 billion, with a total built-up area of approximately 2 million sq ft and a plot area of approximately 237,000 sq ft. It consists of two office towers, a four-star business hotel and a three-storey podium for restaurants and shops.
Ishraqah also awarded renowned Finnish elevator manufacturer Kone and architectural facade specialist Alumco two major contracts recently. Kone will supply two escalators and 24 elevators to service the development, while Alumco will provide an aluminiumglazed curtain wall system and other cladding and panelling applications.
Ishraqah was established in 2006 as an alliance between the Zahran Group and Bin Mahfouz Group to pursue opportunities in the regional and international property markets. The Onyx is its second large project in Dubai after the successful completion and handover of the Seasons Community in Jumeirah Village.
