LIMITLESS AWARDS AED227.5 MILLION CONTRACT TO COMPLETE TWO RESIDENTIAL TOWERS AT THE GALLERIES
Dubai developer brings 641 apartments to Downtown Jebel Ali
Developer Limitless has awarded a construction contract for more than AED227.5 million for the completion of two residential towers at The Galleries at Downtown Jebel Ali, its 200 hectare master development in Dubai.
The company has appointed UAE-based Eastern International LLC to carry out the work, which will start immediately and is expected to be completed in Q3 2017. The 27-storey towers are already 70 per cent complete.
With a combined built up area of 936,000 square feet, the two towers comprise 641 apartments as well as ground-floor retail space spanning 68,000 sq ft. They are located opposite the four fully operational office towers that make up The Galleries’ thriving business community, with a 200,000 sq ft landscaped, shaded plaza separating the office and residential complexes.
Ali Rashid Lootah, Chairman of Limitless, said: “The Galleries is already a firmly-established, vibrant commercial hub and home to some of the world’s biggest names in business. With the completion of these two towers, we can look forward to The Galleries growing into a full mixed-use, strategically-located community that combines top-flight office accommodation with high-standards of living and leisure.”
Limitless is seeing increased demand for residential units at The Galleries. Its location, setting, transport links and increasing number of retail outlets make it the perfect base for people who need easy access to both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The apartments are also ideally-located for people working at The Galleries, Jafza, Jebel Ali Port, Al Maktoum International Airport and other nearby areas.
The two buildings will contain 641 units, including studios and one, two and three bedroom apartments, available for lease.
The Galleries is an hour by car from Abu Dhabi and is directly accessed from Sheikh Zayed Road. It is also directly linked to Jebel Ali Metro Station by a covered walkway.
Set in shaded, landscaped grounds the size of three international football pitches, The Galleries features several international banks, a convenience store, nursery and a growing number of cafes and restaurants, with retail outlets on the way.
More than three quarters of The Galleries’ available commercial space is occupied, with major business brands including Siemens LLC (Dubai Branch), Ericsson AB/ Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, L’Oreal Middle East FZE, Mondelez Eastern Europe Middle East & Africa FZE, BASF Middle East LLC, Dubai Trade FZE, Hoffman-La Roche Ltd. (Dubai Branch), Daikin Middle East and Africa FZE and Daikin Air-conditioning LLC.
