Now DIP into Lagoon

16 January 2006
Dubai International Properties (DIP) has invited companies to bid by 17 January for a major infrastructure package at its Lagoon project, formerly known as the Seven Pearls, on the La Ville Contemporaire development (MEED 23:9:05). The package is spread across two plots, the larger covering an area of 22 hectares and the smaller covering an area of 4 hectares. The package calls for all infrastructure work, including roads, drainage and a 300-metre-long service tunnel.

DIP is also evaluating bids for an AED 50 million ($14 million) quay wall package, and piling works for the projects' road infrastructure. The local Ghantoot Transport & General Contracting is carrying out site preparation works.

The Lagoon involves the creation of a series of canals and waterways forming residential islands and a central pearl with a number of commercial high-rise structures.

The project is one of four developments that make up La Ville Contemporaire. DIP is developing two, the Lagoon and Dubai Health Care City II, formerly known as Wellness Village, and its sister company Dubai Properties is developing Business Bay and Al-Jadaf. The UK's Halcrow is the consultant; US-based Hill International is the project manager.
