Construction of the $68m (AED250m) Binghatti Stars has passed the halfway mark and the residential building in Dubai Silicon Oasis is now 60% complete, officials told Construction Week.

Structural work is done for several floors of the mid-rise "affordable luxury" property. With the main contractor on site, Granada Europe Construction (GEC), pouring a 2,300m2  slab of concrete every week to build a new floor, Binghatti Stars' main structure is on track to complete in the coming months, which will keep the project on track for a December 2018 completion.

Located in Dubai's first masterplanned smart hub, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Binghatti Stars will add to the 19 other Binghatti-branded buildings that are either finished or under construction in the first smart city community in the UAE.

As Binghatti Stars is compliant with Dubai's Green Building Code, more than 50% of the construction materials procured by the business, such as wood and steel, came from recycled materials. The company used suppliers such as RAK Ceramics, Grohe, Villeroy & Boch, Mitsubishi, ABB, Schneider, Siemens, and Bosch.

The 16-storey building has a rooftop garden, a heat-monitored swimming pool, a Technogym, a children’s play area, six retail units, two basement levels, and two podiums. The mixed-use property has 362 residential units available as studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments.

Due to rising consumer demand for the property, the building had to be redesigned from its initial 10-floor design.

The developer said is targeting residents that earn between $4,000 (AED15,000) and $8,000 (AED30,000) per month.
