The UAE’s first Vivanta by Taj is on course to complete by the end of October 2018, according to client representative, Signature Holdings.

The project, which will comprise a combination of hotel rooms and branded apartments, is currently under construction in Dubai’s Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) area.

Al Shafar General Contracting (ASGC) was awarded the main contract for the development earlier this year. Piling works completed in April 2016, and the contractor commenced construction activities later that month.

Commenting on progress at the site, Halil Kemaloglu, Signature Holdings’ client representative for Vivanta by Taj JLT, said: “We are very happy with the main contractor, ASGC. They are handling everything; no problems have been reported to us so far. It’s tough work, but it’s progressing well.

“This development is going to be impressive. We will not let any delay happen,” Kemaloglu added.

The 46-storey Vivanta by Taj JLT was announced in April 2015 by CG Hospitality Holdings, which owns a 50% stake in the project. The firm is a subsidiary of CG Corp Global, a conglomerate headed by Nepalese billionaire, Binod Chaudhary.

The project, which is expected to top out in October 2017, is being developed in collaboration with Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, which is owned by India’s Tata Group.

Upon completion, Vivanta by Taj JLT will feature 201 hotel rooms and 130 branded apartments.
