Construction starts on JBRs tallest building
Construction work has begun on The Address Residences Jumeirah Resort + Spa, set to be the tallest building at Dubais Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) area.
Middle East Foundation Group is undertaking the foundation work, which will feature 22 km of bored piling for the two-tower development. Over 222,000 cubic metres of earth will be excavated for the three basement levels.
The beach front development is being built on the last available land plot on Jumeirah Beach Walk opposite the under construction Bluewaters Island.
The Address Residences Jumeirah Resort + Spa is essentially a single tower, arranged in a split formation to maximise light and ensure sweeping views of the Arabian Gulf and Dubai Marina.
Ahmad Al Falasi, Managing Director, Hamptons International, said: The award of the enabling works contract to Middle East Foundation Group underlines the commitment to work with best-in-class partners, for the on-schedule delivery of the project. As the leading foundation contractor, the company has proven expertise in undertaking large-scale projects.
