China State to build Emaar's Marina Vista project in Dubai

China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) has won the contract to build the new Marina Vista project for Emaar Development.

Situated along Emaar Beach Front, the deal involves the construction of two residential buildings – a 35-storey tower and a 45-storey tower. It also includes mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works, according to a report by Arabian Business.

Launched by master developer Meraas in 2017, Emaar Beach Front is being developed as part of the Dubai Harbour project.

Covering more than 1.86m2, the project includes a 1,400-berth marina as well as a cruise ship port and terminal, a 325,000m2 shopping mall, an events arena, residential buildings, hotels, offices, retail stores, public services, restaurants and cafes, and the Dubai Lighthouse - a 135m-tall tower.

UAE-based construction group ASGC was recently appointed to build the new Dubai Cruise Terminal at Dubai Harbour, the first dedicated cruise port in the region.

Located between Bluewaters and Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Cruise Terminal will become the main hub for international cruise ships visiting or deployed in the region and is part of Dubai Harbour, the maritime neighbourhood being developed in the emirate.

Work conducted by ASGC on the project will include the construction of two main cruise terminal buildings on a 1km quay in addition to service buildings, a central unit building with all associated fit-out works, external works, and all fixtures, fittings and equipment.
