WCN Editorial Team 7 Feb 2017 MIDDLE EAST BUILDINGS

Dubai Contracting Company has been selected by Dubai Properties as the main contractor for the 1/JBR project located at Jumeirah Beach Residence [pictured].

Construction work has already commenced on the 46-storey tower, estimated to cost AED1bn ($272.2M).

The tower will feature 161 two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments, and five-bedroom penthouses.

Dubai Properties group CEO Abdulla Lahej said: “1/JBR is an exemplary development that reinforces DP’s position as a creator of master-planned destinations and it is set to redefine the definition of luxury sea-front living in Dubai. This is exemplified by the extremely positive investor sentiment in the entire JBR area, with Dh2.893bn worth of real estate transactions recorded in just 6 months of 2016.

The project is expected to be complete in the final quarter of 2019.
