The local Dubai Contracting Company (DCC) has been awarded the contract to build the Edition Hotel building at Jumeirah Beach Residence in the Dubai Marina area.

The 10-storey hotel will have 258 rooms and a total built-up area of about 60,000 square metres. The hotel will have several food and beverage outlets, a spa, a beach club, meeting and event space and a business centre.

The Edition Hotel brand is part of the US’ Marriott International.

The hotel is being developed by a joint venture of the local Dubai Properties and the US’ Ian Schrager Company.

Dubai Properties is developing a several projects in Dubai, including another property at JBR. In February it appointed DCC as the main contractor for its 1/JBR project.

That project involves the construction of the 46-storey tower, which will be made up of 163 residential units.
