Al Shafar General Contracting (ASGC) has won a US $300 million (AED1.1 billion) contract to construct a mixed-use residential development in Jumeirah Heights.

Nakheel is the developer, while Arenco is the consultant on the project which is scheduled to be completed in August 2010.

Jumeirah Heights lies just off Sheikh Zayed Road next to the Jumeirah Islands community and will comprise mid to low-rise apartments and townhouses.

ASGC will be working on one of two identical clusters, Frond B, comprising two mid-rise apartment buildings, 17 townhouses, and three low-rise buildings that will house two- and three-bedroom loft apartments with private gardens.

Jumeirah Heights is divided into three distinct areas - The Village Centre, The Fronds and The Clusters.

The Village Centre contains two mid-rise buildings, consisting of 650 apartments and a variety of retail facilities including cafes, a supermarket, bank and pharmacy.

Both The Fronds and The Clusters will offer a variety of leisure facilities which will include a swimming pool, a gym and a children's play area.

ASGC CEO Bishoy Azmy said:  "Our continuous focus on reliability and integrity has played a vital role in making us a recognised contracting leader in this highly competitive marketplace. By placing great importance on the principles of safety, quality and people, we have been able to satisfy our clients' needs on every project."

Between 2005 and 2007, ASGC grew by 377% and its rapid growth was recognised when it was named Contractor of the Year at the Construction Week awards 2007.

Other projects that ASGC is involved with include phase III of Dubai Internet City, Emirates Airlines staff accommodation, the new Dubai Police headquarters, phase II of The Greens, Lamcy Plaza, sector 6 of the Jumeirah Beach Residence, Golden Sands tower, Al Tayer tower, The Golden Mile, Windsor Manor, Vision Tower, The Villa, Dubai Studio City and Bay Square.

Private Gardens? We all know Nakheel sells itself well when it comes to selling property, but when a property is handed over, service fees rise and all the fees they charge for are never clearly answered or stated. They just have two young girls ignore all emails and calls.
