Dubai developer Emaar Properties has invited contractors to bid for construction work on The Address development in Ras al-Khaimah.

The first phase of the project involves the construction of serviced apartment buildings. Contractors have been invited to bid by 21 September for that contract.

The second phase involves building a hotel. The tender closing date for that contract is in October.

A third phase covering the construction of apartments is expected to be tendered in April next year.

Overall the development has 186,000 square-metres of mixed-use space that includes high-end residential, hospitality and retail components.

The project manager is South Africa’s Mirage. The consultant is Kuwait’s SSH.

Emaar signed an agreement to develop the scheme on Ras al-Khaimah’s Al-Marjan Island in December 2016.

The agreement was signed by Sheikh Khalid bin Saud al-Qasimi, chairman of Al-Marjan Island, and Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties.
