According to a Reuters report, subcontractors "have been asked to submit pricing proposals" to SBG by mid-September. 

An executive that wished to remain anonymous told Reuters: "With a clearer grasp on its finances, the government has allocated a portion of its budget toward completing key projects."

The mega-project comprises 12 towers varying from 30 storeys to 48 storeys, being developed for residential and hospitality use. 

Two of the development's towers will feature a dome, which will house a ballroom and a convention centre. 

A listing of the project on dargroup.com states that the site will be covered by a podium, which will feature a bus station, a shopping mall, restaurants, food courts, a conference centre, and car parks. 

Technical services are located at the podium’s basement levels.
