Al Qabdah bags Dh600 million contract for The Pulse at Dubai South

Master Developer Dubai South awarded a contract worth more than Dh600 million to Al Qabdah Global Building Contracting for the development of residential buildings in the urban community The Pulse located in the Residential District of Dubai South, adjacent to the Expo 2020 Dubai site and Al Maktoum International Airport, and part of the 140 square kilometre mega development project.

Construction work for 11 buildings as part of seven projects will be delivered in phases from 2019 in 26 months, officials told the media at a press conference.

Dubai South expressed confidence that this partnership will ensure the latest developments in smart city technology and sustainability are seamlessly integrated into all aspects of The Pulse Residential Project, which is specifically designed to deliver life solutions and attractive urban design. The Emirate’s flagship urban project, Dubai South, has been conceptualized to manifest the themes of happiness as set out in the Dubai Plan 2021.

Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South, said, his organisation is investing Dh1.1 billion for the infrastructure works while the Dh1.5 billion Pulse will be developed with the sales proceeds.

“The concept behind this community is to reinvent urban living. This entirely new and incomparable model puts people first and focuses on affordability while celebrating nature and diverse populations. This combination proved highly successful during sales in Q4 2016, where we surpassed our targets and achieved more than 90 per cent sales. In Al Qabdah, we have found the right partners to deliver the true experience of this unique community to our customers."

“More than Dh7 billion will be pumped into real estate projects in Dubai South ahead of Expo 2020,” said Al Zaffin. “Of these, half the investments will be made by the master developer while the remaining half will be deployed by private investors.”

“One of the most important factors for a unique project such as The Pulse is a highly evolved sense of design, fine quality of construction and timely delivery. We are grateful to Dubai South for their confidence and trust in Al Qabdah. We are confident that the project will be delivered on time and will exceed the expectations of investors and residents at The Pulse,” stated Eng. Samer El Achkar, CEO of Al Qabdah Global Building Contracting.

Dubai South has also launched its latest residential project, Parklane, at Cityscape 2017, including 1,400 apartments and townhouses. Apartments at Parklane start from Dh300,000 for a studio, and at Dh1.1 million for townhouses attracting strong response from prospective buyers and investors.

“Since we launched Parklane, we have already sold 40 per cent of the released inventory within the first few hours at Cityscape. Following the commencement of The Pulse development, we will appoint the contractor of Parklane within the next four months,” Al Zaffin added.

The Pulse master plan includes The Pulse Mall, a shopping centre with a wide range of experiences from a hypermarket, movie theatres, restaurants and cafés, fashion and a spacious fitness center. The mall is located in the heart of the community and within walking distance from all residences. The Pulse Mall is currently in final design stage, and will be awarded to the contractor within the next four months with delivery scheduled for early 2020.

In addition to the Pulse Mall, there are two hospitality towers with 450 hotel keys opposite the mall with direct access to the main boulevard, which is planned to be developed in two phases. A 4-star lifestyle hotel and serviced apartments have also been incorporated into the project plan and are due to be completed and delivered in 2020.
