Burj 2020 will be built in Jumeirah Lake Towers

The Dubai master developer behind Burj 2020, which is set to be the world’s tallest commercial tower, has hit out at fake tender documents been circulated in relation to the project.

Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) issued a statement - headed ‘Clarification on the false and untrue tender documents shamelessly purporting to be on behalf of DMCC’ - in which it warned contractors to be cautious of fake tenders claiming to be offering work on the project.

“There are currently no tenders in the market regarding the planning or construction of the Burj 2020 and final details of the scale of the project have yet to be released by DMCC,” the statement said

“DMCC is the only correct source of information in relation to Burj 2020 and DMCC shall not be responsible for inaccurate information distributed by or obtained from any other party in this respect... Any other source of information should be treated with extreme caution and any enquiries should be made directly to DMCC,” it added.

Plans for Burj 2020 are currently in the final stages, with architects due to be appointed in 2014 and ground breaking planned for 2015.

The tower, which will be the tallest commercial building when complete, is part of DMCC’s 107,000 square metre expansion of the free zone at Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT), in the south of Dubai.

The tower will be built at the southern side of JLT, close to Jumeirah Island and Jumeirah Park.
