Omniyat Properties has awarded China State Construction Engineering Corporation the main contract for its US $92 million (AED345 million) 25-storey commercial tower, Bayswater, in Business Bay.

Construction has now entered its second phase with the completion of enablement work by the Al Dhafra Piling Contracting Company. Currently, 25% of the main construction and 33% of the overall development has been completed, with the slab reaching the ground floor.

"Work is progressing as planned and we are now entering into the second phase, which will allow us to complete all work by the third quarter of 2008," said Mehdi Amjad, president and CEO, Omniyat Properties.

Designed by Dubai-based architect Dubarch, its shape is an optical illusion that makes it appear to consist of two slim towers side by side, forming the shape of the letter X. The project is targeted at a market segment comprising predominantly medium-sized companies wanting Grade-A office space.
