Dh200 m Bellevue Towers completes raft casting

Dubai Properties, a leading Dubai-based real estate master developer of renowned destinations across the emirate, today announced the completion of the raft casting at its Bellevue Towers residential project. Valued at more than Dh200 million, the two tower development, conveniently located in proximity to Marasi Business Bay waterfront and within walking distance of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, is scheduled for handover in Q3 2019.

Since mobilisation of construction works in May 2017, the project has proceeded on target. The raft foundation of the 717,156.57 square feet development was completed in just 48 hours, with 1,124 trucks delivering more than 9,500 cubic metresof concrete simultaneously to the site between 29 September and 1 October 2017. The enabling works, including excavation, dewatering, pile cap cutting and treatment, saw more than 1,800 tonnes of reinforced steel used to construct the 5,067 square metre raft. 

In line with the highest global industry standards and compliant with Dubai Municipality regulations, Dubai Properties opted for a green concrete mix that was continuously poured at the rate of 200 cubic metres per hour. Green concrete is a construction material known for its fire-resistant and eco-friendly properties, consuming less energy during production and emitting less carbon dioxide than conventional cement.

Speaking on the occasion, Marwan Al Kindi, Executive Director of Dubai Properties, said: “The successful completion of this critically important phase of the development is testimony to our commitment to delivering best-in-class residential projects. Now that the full raft has been cast, work will begin on the main floors, with the construction on track for a timely delivery." 

Bellevue Towers is yet another example of a Dubai Properties development that meets the market demand for high-quality residential properties in strategic locations. The two-tower complex will comprise 319 units including 159 one-bedroom apartments, 105 two-bedroom apartments, 42 three-bedroom apartments, 10 penthouses and three loft apartments.

Set to offer panoramic views of Downtown Dubai, the project will feature bespoke sustainable design with a contemporary façade and balconies or terraces for all apartments. A high-end finish throughout the building, a landscaped podium terrace, and an extensive range of amenities – including a gym, a pool, a children’s pool and a playground – will guarantee an exceptional urban living experience.
