Selected contractors have been invited to bid by 9 November for a contract to build a mid-rise residential development.

Known as the Flamingo Residence, the project involves the construction of six to seven mid-rise residential buildings, with a total built-up area of about 225,000 square metres.

Lebanon’s Khatib & Alami is the consultant. Local developer Dubai Properties is the client.

Contractors have also been invited to bid by 30 November for a five-star hotel building.

The project involves the construction of a 24-floor hotel tower with a total built-up area of about 50,000 square metres.

The consultant is UK-based Godwin Austen Johnson. The client is the local Sharaf Group.

Dubai Properties is the master developer of Business Bay. In mid-October, contractors submitted first stage bids from three groups for the contract to build its Signature Towers project.

The bidders are the local Al-Habtoor Engineering Enterprises in a joint venture with South Africa’s Murray & Roberts Contractors (Middle East), the local Arabtec Construction, and the local/Belgian Bel Hasa Six Construct.

The project, formerly known as the Dancing Towers, involves the construction of three mixed-use towers with a shared podium. The development will also include a new stock exchange building for the Dubai Financial Market (MEED 13:10:08).
