The companies invited include the local Arabtec Construction, Lebanon’s Arabian Construction Company (ACC), the local/South African joint venture of Al-Habtoor Engineering Enterprises and Murray & Roberts Contractors (Middle East), and the local/Australian Nasa Multiplex.

Located next to the existing Hard Rock Hotel, the project involves the construction of a mixed-use tower with serviced apartments, penthouses and a small retail area. It will also be the headquarters for Tameer and the company hopes to build towers based on the same design in all major cities in the Gulf. The gross floor area is 430,000 square metres.

UK-based Atkins is the consultant. US-based Morganti Group is the project manager.
