Since mobilisation of construction works in May 2017, the project has proceeded on target. It is scheduled for handover in the third quarter of 2019.

A green concrete mix was used for the project, in collaboration with Dubai Municipality, which was continuously poured at the rate of 200 cubic metres per hour.

Marwan Al Kindi, executive director of Dubai Properties, said: “The successful completion of this critically important phase of the development is testimony to our commitment to delivering best-in-class residential projects.

“Now that the full raft has been cast, work will begin on the main floors, with the construction on track for a timely delivery."

The two-tower complex will comprise 319 units including 159 one-bedroom apartments, 105 two-bedroom apartments, 42 three-bedroom apartments, 10 penthouses and three loft apartments.

Bellevue Towers will also include amenities such as a gym, a pool, a children’s pool, and a playground.
