DUBAI 20 March 2018: Dubai-based developer Omniyat has appointed the contractor for its Dorchester Collection project in Marasi, Dubai Canal.

Omniyat has awarded the construction 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 on one of the widest part of the Dubai Water Canal in the Marasi community, 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.

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 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.”

“Omniyat is known for creating bespoke developments of the highest quality, with relentless attention to detail when it comes to luxury finishes and appointments. We are also honoured to deliver this project for such an esteemed brand as Dorchester Collection” said Graeme Robson, chief executive, Roberts Constructions.
