Dubai: Damac to tender for second Aykon City tower
Dubai-based developer, Damac Properties, has issued a new tender for main works for a second tower at its six-tower, luxury master development, Aykon City, on Sheikh Zayed Road overlooking Dubai Canal.
The tender will be awarded for the tower construction which includes three basements, ground floor, and 10 podium levels, in addition to a dedicated lifestyle and entertainment level, 49 residential floors, and a rooftop. The total built-up area will be 16ha.
Mohammed Tahaineh, senior vice president – Commercial, Damac Properties, said: “Construction development at Aykon City site is progressing rapidly with piling work for this tower already completed, so we have moved to the tendering stage which will see a new construction partner being appointed as early as May 2018.”
This tender follows Damac’s recently awarded construction contract to China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) in February for approximately AED600mn to take on the construction of one of the towers at Aykon City.
Aykon City consists of residences, serviced apartments, a hotel, and an office space. Offering views of the Dubai Canal, Aykon City will be home to Aykon Plaza, an entertainment and lifestyle hub for the community that includes swimming pools, spa, beach club, cafes, restaurants, yoga and tai-chi areas, as well as a residents-only private recreation space called The Club.
