Emaar Properties has awarded the contract to build a 72-storey hotel in Dubai, in what is set to be the sixth property to launch under its Address brand.
No value for the contract was given in a statement issued by the emirate’s largest listed property developer.
The building will include 200 hotel rooms and 523 serviced residences and will be located close to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
Hundreds of people queued in line at the development’s off-plan sales launch in September, including many labourers paid by property agents and brokerages to stand in the heat on behalf of buyers.
