A joint venture of Leighton International and Al Habtoor Engineering has won a US $350 million (AED 1.2 billion) contract for the construction of a mixed-use development in Abu Dhabi.

The client on the project, currently known as Plot 9, is United Holdings.

The project will include a 40-storey hotel tower; a 25-storey serviced apartments tower; a 19-storey residential tower and an 18-storey office tower.

 

It will be constructed over 240,000 m2.

Construction is due to begin early this month and will be carried out in two stages. Stage 1 will be completed in December 2009, and stage 2 will be completed in July 2010.

The project follows the award to Al Habtoor Engineering in December of the $550 million Jafza Convention Centre in Dubai, and two hotels for Aldar Properties in Abu Dhabi worth $130 million.

In November, the company also secured the $290 million JW Marriott Hotel in Abu Dhabi, for Abu Dhabi National Hotels, which represented the first contract won by Al Habtoor since its merger with the Arabian Gulf operations of Leighton International in September last year.
