Dubai Properties Group has renewed its agreement with the local Al-Basti & Muktha (ABM) to complete construction work on the Al-Khor Hotel and Residences project at Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC).

ABM halted construction on two mixed-use towers in January 2009 after the client, Tatweer – which is now part of Dubai Properties Group, instructed the contractor to stop work (MEED 11:1:09).

ABM was awarded the estimated AED850m ($231m) contract to build the towers in 2007.

The project has two towers, a 34-floor hotel with 444 rooms and a 43-floor apartment building with 405 serviced apartments. The podium will have six restaurants, a spa, gym, swimming pools and a 1,142 space car park.
