“So by the end of 2020, we would have had almost $2.4bn (AED9bn) worth of contracts awarded overall,” Durie said.

“This year, we would probably award two or three major contracts. We are just finalizing design and tendering, and you can also expect a launch towards the end of the summer,” he added.

According to Nshama, several residential neighbourhoods are currently in different stages of completion at Town Square Dubai.
