Al Habbai Contracting has clinched a AED 500mn ($136mn) contract to build a 54-floor hotel on Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road.
The 5-star Sabah Rotana hotel and hotel apartments is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
Developer RSG Group claims the project is a marked departure from standard architectural designs, with asymmetrical balconies and pointed tapered sides adding a layered dimension to the building.
As per the contract, the main contractor will completely focus on delivering this new landmark project.
Located in Sufouh Gardens, the tower encompasses 5-star rooms, serviced hotel apartments, food & beverage outlets, nightclubs and a sky bar with spectacular views of Dubai.
Raj Sahni, founder & chairman of RSG Group of Companies, said: “The road was long, and it was tough to finalize the main contractor that matched the same level of passion and commitment towards Sabah Rotana.
“In the end, the search yielded great results in the form of Al Habbai Contracting LLC, whom we welcome to a long partnership with us. As evidenced by their past work, they have validated themselves as the perfect choice for the position.”
Ali Al Habbai, chairman & CEO of Al Habbai Contracting LLC, said: “We have always believed in going the extra mile and will ensure the timely completion of the project with a perfect score on quality as well.”
The project has already received pre-approval under the category rating of 5-star and Tourism property by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).
