Omniyat moves forward with mixed-use project for Dubai Canal

Dubai-based ultra-luxury developer Omniyat has appointed the contractor for its Dorchester Collection project in Marasi, Dubai Canal.

Arabian Business reported that Omniyat said in a statement that it has awarded the construction to a joint venture between Roberts Constructions and Impresa Pizzarotti & C. Work on the site has already begun and the project is due for completion in 2020.

The development includes two towers, which will house the luxury five-star hotel and exclusive residences, high end food and beverage retail as well as a surrounding mixed-use precinct.

Designed by renown architectural firm Foster + Partners, the site includes Dorchester Collection’s first hotel in the region and luxury residences managed by the iconic hospitality brand, named Private Residences by Dorchester Collection.

Mark Phoenix, managing director at Omniyat, said, “We always select the best partners that help us execute our vision. I have no doubt that this joint venture will yield immaculate results.”

Roberts Constructions has partnered with Impresa Pizzarotti & C, one of Italy’s most established construction firms, to deliver the project.
