Damac Properties’ first serviced apartment project, Burjside Boulevard, has been constructed up to the first podium.

Main contractor Sun Engineering has reportedly been making good progress on the project, after enabling works were completed by Norwegian firm Stromek.

The 49-floor tower, designed by German architects Koschany & Zimmer, will be the first of its kind for Damac, seeking to bridge the gap between up-market residential property and luxury hotels.

Located opposite the Dubai mall, it is currently one of Damac’s biggest projects under construction, and will offering 1, 2 and 3 bedroom serviced apartments on completion.

With the development still in its early stages, it is expected that the developer will award sub-contracts as the project is rolled out.

A prime candidate for MEP and other works is the main contractor, which also has its own in-house electromechanical, steel works, joinery and carpentry divisions.
