Six Dubai based firms have been appointed to lead the design and construction supervision of Nakheel’s sprawling Dh7.5 billion Jebel Ali Gardens community. In all, the project will have 42 high-rises and be home to 40,000 people at its nearly 1,000 apartments.
“We are delighted to name these six firms as the consultants who will work with our in-house design, engineering and construction teams to deliver what is set to become one of Dubai’s largest, most desirable residential communities,” said Ali Rashid Lootah, Chairman.
The new units will add to Dubai’s leased residential stock, and represents one of the biggest push by the developer into building up its residential portfolio.
The six firms are Middle East Engineering Consultants (Meecon), Golden Square Engineering, Eng. Adnan Saffarini Office, Arif & Bintoak Consulting Architects & Engineers Design Center Architects & Engineers Consultants and Bel-Yoahah Architectural & Engineering Consultants.
A construction tender will be released in Q1-17 and with anticipated completion in Q1-20. The 42 buildings range between 18 to 29 floors and grouped into 12 blocks.
“As we embark on a new phase in our growth, we are proud to support Emirati companies to help us achieve our business goals,” said Lootah.
Nakheel aims to double the number of existing units for lease to nearly 36,000. Jebel Ali Gardens is set on a 5.5 million square feet site, of which around 20 per cent will be green space and with a built-up area of 19 million square feet.
