Kleindienst Group, developer of The Heart of Europe – the $5bn master-planned leisure tourism island destination – has completed the elevations of the four hotels resort, Côte d’Azur, and is set to be finished by Q4 2020.

Built on a plot of 43,442m2, Côte d’Azur comprises four boutique hotels – Monaco, Nice, Cannes and St. Tropez – and offering distinct European hospitality and culture in Dubai.

Kleindienst said the completion of the elevations at the resort “paves the way” for walls, finishing and interior works for the 893-key facility to be ready for visitors by the fourth quarter of 2020.

Construction workers are now putting together walls, doors and windows that will trigger the finishing, painting and interiors works. Facades are being painted in Monaco and Nice in vibrant colour schemes, a combination of various hues of red and green.

Other construction updates include the topping out of St. Tropez, the fourth hotel of the resort cluster, while the development of two key sustainable facilities is also underway at Côte d'Azur.

Côte d'Azur is strategically located next to the Rainy Street covering 1km, where it will rain on command, whilst cooling down and maintaining a temperature of 27 degrees celsius as well as 5km per hour winds and 60% humidity, in order to mirror the summer climate in southern Europe.

Commenting on the construction update for its Côte d’Azur resort, Kleindienst Group chairman Josef Kleindienst said: “The completion of the elevation works and topping out of the four hotels mark an important milestone in the development of the Heart of Europe Island and our strong commitment to deliver the project by the end of the year, despite the current economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
