Sites earmarked include Harbour Heights in Abu Dhabi and Suburbia in Jebel Ali.
Damac Properties has awarded three more contracts for projects in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.Enabling works contracts have been signed-off for the company's Harbour Heights project in Abu Dhabi and its Suburbia development at Jebel Ali. Meanwhile, the enabling works contract at Damac Heights calls for work to restart.
The Harbour Heights contract, awarded to National Dewatering and Drainage Services, will mark the third project Damac has underway in Abu Dhabi, following enabling works already in progress at its Marina Bay and Oceanscape developments in the city.
Harbour Heights is located on Al Reem Island at Marina Rise overlooking the waterfront. The 41-storey tower will offer a range of apartments from studios up to three bedrooms, along with duplexes on the higher floors.
In addition to the Harbour Heights contract, a second enabling works order has been issued to National Piling for the company's Suburbia project in Dubai at Downtown Jebel Ali.
Suburbia is a combination of apartments and town houses based on Moroccan style architecture.
The project will be located at the heart of the new Downtown Jebel Ali area with shops and restaurants nearby and with easy access to the new Metro stations.
Work is due to commence shortly and will include site clearance, shoring and foundation preparation and excavation.
Meanwhile, at Damac Heights in the Dubai Marina, Zetas has restarted works following a short delay due to redesign. Nineteen metres of diaphragm wall has been constructed and work is ongoing.
I think most of projects by damac are only paper only
