Al Shafar General Contracting Co has announced that it has completed all structural construction work on the $354 million The Onyx project fronting Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.
The Onyx is a mixed-use, three-tower project being built next to Emaar Business Park in front of The Greens residential development.
Tower one is a 14-storey commercial building with ground floor retail units, tower two is a 24-storey building containing ground floor retail, ten floors of offices and 13 upper floors of residential units. Tower 3 contains a 210-bed, four-star hotel.
All three ground floors are linked by a podium containing retail and restaurant units.
ASGC was awarded the contract by Ishraqah For Development and started construction in July 2013.
The Onyx is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2015 and apartments and offices are currently on sale.
Bishoy Azmy, CEO of ASGC, said: "We are delighted to announce the completion of all structural construction work on the Onyx development.
"As we continue to win high profile contracts such as the recent Union Museum and Bluewaters projects, we are also focusing on new high growth sector opportunities within the oil and gas and healthcare sectors, which will support our on-going growth momentum both within the UAE and across the region."
