Al Shafar General Contracting (ASGC) has completed all structural construction work on The Onyx development in Dubai.

Located near The Greens and Emaar Business Park on Sheikh Zayed Road, The Onyx is an exclusive Class A three-tower mixed use development that consists of two office and residential buildings, a four-star boutique hotel, and a three-story podium of restaurants and retail shops.

The hotel will offer 210 rooms and suites and the project will accommodate approximately 1,400 parking spaces.

ASGC was awarded the second milestone contract of AED405m ($110m) by Ishraqah For Development, a leading developer, and started construction of this phase in July 2013.

The Onyx is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2015; meanwhile, apartments and offices are currently on sale.

Bishoy Azmy, CEO of ASGC, said: “We are delighted to announce the completion of all structural construction work on the Onyx development which is located opposite Media City and adjacent to Sheikh Zayed Road. This high profile project once again demonstrates our ability to deliver major projects on time and reaffirms the strength of the ASGC brand, built over the last 25 years, as both a trusted and expert construction company. As we continue to win high profile contracts such as the recent Union Museum and Bluewaters projects, we are also focusing on new high growth sector opportunities within the oil and gas and healthcare sectors, which will support our on-going growth momentum both within the UAE and across the region.”
