Damac Properties on Wednesday announced that it has awarded China State Construction Engineering Corporation (Middle East) a AED554 million ($148 million) contract to build the Paramount Residences at the Paramount Tower Hotel and Residences in Dubai.
The global construction giant has been awarded the main work contract for 27 floors that comprise a collection of luxury residences, the Dubai-based developer said in a statement.
Paramount Tower Hotel & Residences is an 867-key luxury hotel and hotel residences tower on Sheikh Zayed Road. The 64-storey project will offer a sky lobby, a private Paramount Pictures screening room, a rooftop infinity swimming pool with a terrace and a fitness and wellness centre with a spa.
The project is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2020, Damac said.
