QACC, a subsidiary of Arabian Construction Company (ACC), has been awarded a US $142 million (AED 520 million) contract to construct residential buildings at the Viva Bahriya district on the Pearl-Qatar in Doha.

Known as VB 29, the project involves the construction of a 20-storey residential tower with a two-level podium, a five-storey apartment building, and several town houses.

The total built-up area is 91,000m2 and the construction process is expected to take 26 months.

It is the second contract that the project developer, United Development Company (UDC), has awarded QACC.

ACC's first project with UDC in 2006 was a US $170 million (AE622 million) project consisting of two mixed use towers, also on the Pearl Qatar project.

QACC is constructing a total of five towers on the Pearl Qatar for three clients including UDC, First Qatar Real Estate Company and UAE-based Capital Investments.

Viva Bahriya is being touted as "the perfect location for family living, celebrating the essence of the Northern Mediterranean" according to a company release.

"Residents and visitors will be able to enjoy a landscaped marine promenade, have access to a wide range of water sports and a variety of eating and shopping opportunities."

"Moroccan styled townhouses and apartments will offer 360 degree views across the harbour and towards the beach."
