Omniyat appoints contractor for Dorchester Collection project on Marasi

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

Omniyat has awarded the construction, worth AED 668 million, to a joint venture between Roberts Constructions LLC and Impresa Pizzarotti & C. S.p.A. Work on the site has already begun and the project is due for completion in 2020.

Situated by the water in the Marasi community of Dubai Canal, the development includes two towers, which will house the five-star hotel and serviced apartments, as well as a surrounding mixed-use precinct.

The news follows the black-tie event Omniyat held last week to celebrate its partnership with Dorchester Collection and unveil the first images of how the high-end project will look. Designed by renown architectural firm Foster + Partners, the site includes Dorchester Collection’s first hotel in the region and luxury serviced apartments managed by the iconic hospitality brand, named Private Residences.

Mahdi Amjad, CEO and executive chairman at Omniyat, said: “Finding the right contractor for this development is an extremely important part of bringing Dorchester Collection to the region for the first time. I have no doubt that this joint venture between Roberts Constructions and Impresa Pizzarotti will yield immaculate results.”

Established in 2017, Roberts Constructions was formed by the same management as Multiplex — a construction firm responsible for several of Dubai’s most iconic buildings including Emirates Towers, The Gate building in DIFC and Omniyat’s own The Opus.

“Omniyat is known for creating developments of the highest quality, with excellent attention to detail when it comes to luxury finishes and appointments. We are honoured to deliver a project for such an esteemed brand. We are looking forward to starting on site,” said Graeme Robson, chief executive, Roberts Constructions.

For its first project, Roberts Constructions has partnered with Impresa Pizzarotti & C. S.p.A to deliver the luxury five-star hotel and serviced apartments complex in a joint venture arrangement.

Established in 1910, Impresa Pizzarotti is one of Italy’s most established construction firms.
