Trojan wins Dubai tower construction deal

23 December 2018
Contractor will build the 17 Icon Bay tower at Dubai Creek Harbour

Abu Dhabi-based Trojan General Contracting has been awarded the contract to build the 17 Icon Bay project for Emaar Properties at its Dubai Creek Harbour development.

The project involves building 43-storey residential tower with about 300 apartments in the Central Park neighbourhood.

Emaar is building a range of towers at Dubai Creek Harbour. Last year the Dubai-based developer said that there were 28 towers under construction with the first stage of the Creek Island.

The centrepiece of the Creek Harbour development is The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, which is designed to be the world’s tallest man-made structure. Emaar is not expected to award the estimated $1.5bn superstructure contract for the tower’s construction soon, as it focuses its efforts on other projects at Creek Harbour such as 17 Icon Bay.

The project also includes the recently renamed retail centre Dubai Square. It will be linked directly to the Dubai Creek Tower and will have over 750,000 square metres (8.07 million square feet) of gross floor retail space. It will also include the Middle East’s largest of its kind Chinatown.
