Tameer Towers attracts just one bid

17 April 2008
A joint venture of local Al-Habtoor Engineering Enterprises, South Africa’s Murray & Roberts Contractors (Middle East) and Saudi-based Al-Rahji Contracting is the only bidder for the AED7bn ($1.9bn) Tameer Towers project on Reem island in Abu Dhabi.

The project involves building six towers between the sea and the Central Park area of the Shams Abu Dhabi development.

The centrepiece of the project is a 74-floor, 300-metre-tall office tower in the commercial area, along with a 21-storey hotel and apartment tower. The residential district includes two 50-floor and two 30-floor towers. The total built-up area is 915,000 square metres.

Dubai-based Arabian Foundations was sub-contracted for the enabling package in October 2007 (MEED 8:2:08).
