Dubai developer Nakheel has issued a tender seeking a contractor to build a mosque at International City in the emirate.

The scope of work involves the construction of a mosque and service block with a capacity to accommodate 500 visitors. The built-up area will be 787 square metres and the plot size 2,853 sq m. 

The deadline to submit tender documents is 29 September.

The mosque deal is the latest in a number of construction schemes that Nakheel has tendered in 2015.

In July, the developer received bids for the contract to build the Gateway towers project at the base of Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.

The scope of work involves building three high-rise towers, with an expected cost of AED3bn ($817m). The development will be built on top of an existing parking currently serving the Palm monorail on Al-Sufouh road. Nakheel has confirmed the monorail station will remain operational during the construction.
