Dubai-based consultants, Dar Al Handasah, has won the infrastructure design, engineering, and site supervision services at Madinat Al Arab.
Master developer, Nakheel has awarded the works for the project’s 522ha site with 266 mixed-use land plots, located at Waterfront in Jebel Ali, which spans five zones.
Infrastructure design for four of the five zones is almost complete, with the infrastructure construction tender due for release in Q2 2017, Dubai Media Office reported.
A Nakheel spokesman was quoted saying: “Madinat Al Arab’s strategic location, within easy reach of Dubai World Central Airport, the Expo 2020 site, recently-opened attractions and theme parks and the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi, makes it a significant area for growth and development.
“We are reinforcing our commitment to the area and its investors by moving ahead with infrastructure in this key part of Waterfront.”
Elsewhere in the area, Nakheel has already completed the nearby Veneto and Badrah communities, which feature nearly 800 homes and a community retail centre, due to open this year.
Nearby, the sprawling 42-tower Jebel Ali Gardens community for 40,000 people, is under development.
