- Turkish firm breaks ground on Dubai project
- Enabling works started in August
Saudi Arabias Cayan Group has awarded Turkeys Zetas Cemin Teknolojisi the contract for enabling works on its Dubai scheme.
Zetas, which arrived on the site in late August, will carry out all enabling works for the AED1bn ($272m) Cayan Cantara project, located on Umm Suqeim Road.
In March, MEED reported that Cayan Group agreed with local investment firm Shuaa Capital to set up a fund that will be used for the construction of the scheme.
Cayan Group is the main developer of the project. Shuaa Capital will act as the investment manager for the fund.
Other firms working on the design of the project are Japanese architect Nikken Sekkei and UAE-based Dewan Architects.
Located near Mall of the Emirates, the residential and hotel apartment towers will include more than 700 units together with a retail area, meeting rooms and a restaurant. Other amenities, such as a gym, spa and lounge, will occupy the sky-bridge connecting the two towers.
