Local property developer Meydan Group has extended the tender closing date for the contract to build its planned 100-storey Entisar tower in Dubai to 3 August.

Contractors were originally invited contractors to bid by 6 July for the contract. Meydan first released details of the project in 2012. The plans involve building a 100-storey tower that will include serviced apartments, shops, swimming pools and garden areas. If the scheme goes ahead, it will be built on Sheikh Zayed Road, next to the existing Fairmont hotel.

The architect for the tower is US-based Ae7.
