Abu Dhabi-based real estate developer Imkan has selected Chinese construction company CNTC for its Pixel project on Reem Island.

CNTC will serve as the main contractor for the project, which is an 18ha waterfront community consisting of 525 residential units. Pixel is located within Makers District and is Imkan’s flagship development.

The towers will feature 26 amenities such as retail, public areas and co-working spaces, as well as homegrown food and beverage outlets.

Imkan CEO Walid El-Hindi said: “CNTC is one of the biggest construction companies in China, and their experience combined with our commitment to developing research-based communities, gives us confidence that Pixel’s seven towers will be delivered utilising some of the most innovative and diverse construction solutions in the region.”

Different companies are involved in the construction and design of Pixel. Imkan has partnered with MVRDV, a Dutch architectural firm that has been part of numerous international projects.

MVRDV has been involved in Tianjin Binhai Library in China and Future Towers in Pune, India.
