Dubai Properties awards $544m villa contract

10 September 2008
Local developer Dubai Properties has awarded the local Dubai Civil Engineering (DCE) the estimated AED2bn ($544m) contract to built 800 villas in Dubailand.

The project involves the construction of luxury villas and two types of townhouses. The estimated AED150m infrastructure package is currently being tendered (MEED 30:6:08).

The local Arch Group is the consultant for the project which is the latest residential scheme to be developed by Dubai Properties at Dubailand.

In April, DCE was awarded an estimated AED3bn to build 100 apartment buildings at the Remraam Community residential project in Dubailand.

The buildings will be arranged into four clusters, each with two sectors, and will range from four to seven floors.

The total built-up area of both packages is about 1.3 million square metres. The project is adjacent to Global Village and Bawadi Boulevard.

Earlier in 2008 Dubai Properties awarded Beijing-based China State Construction Engineering Corporation a AED400m ($109m) building package at its AED55bn Mudon development in Dubailand.

The contract was the second to be awarded to China State at Mudon. In 2007 it was awarded a AED500m contract for an earlier phase of building works.
