Lebanon’s Arabian Construction Company (ACC) has been awarded the $88m contract to build the Rotana hotel tower in Amman by Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Tourism Investment (ETI) Company.

On completion in 2013, the 188-metre tower will be the tallest building in Jordan.

As the general contractor, ACC will oversee structural and facade cladding, architectural and civil works, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works, interior finishes and external works.

The five star Rotana Hotel is part of the Abdali Urban Regeneration Project, which aims to modernise downtown Amman. In total, there will be 66,880 square metres of floor space including seven basements with space for 180 cars, 425 rooms on 50 floors, a gym, spa, pool deck and several restaurants.

ACC is also working on the two tallest towers in Abu Dhabi, Central Market and Sky and has completed the second tallest building in Dubai, Almas.
