Al Habtoor Engineering Abu Dhabi, part of the Al Habtoor Leighton Group, has been awarded an AED 1.3 billion contract for the construction of a major mixed-use development in Abu Dhabi for United Holdings.
The project, currently known as the Plot 9 hotel, residential and commercial complex, comprises:
• a 40-storey hotel tower
• a 25-storey tower containing serviced apartments
• a 19-storey residential tower
• a 18-storey office tower
The overall built up area of the project exceeds 240,000 square metres.
Construction on the project will begin in early February and will be completed in two stages. Stage 1 will be completed in December 2009, and Stage 2 will be completed in July 2010.
The project follows the award to Al Habtoor Leighton in December of the AED 1.9 billion JAFZA Convention Centre in Dubai, and two hotels for Aldar in Abu Dhabi worth AED 500 million. In November the company also secured the AED 1 billion JW Marriott Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The JW Marriott project, for Abu Dhabi National Hotels, represented the first contract won by the Group since its establishment in September this year.
