Real estate stalwart, RSG Group of Companies, has announced the appointment of Al Habbai Contracting LLC as the main contractor for its landmark project, Sabah Rotana. The contract is worth AED 500 million for the construction of a 54-floor building on Dubai’s main arterial road, Sheikh Zayed Road. The prime road network offers a smooth transition from the suburbs to the heart of the city.

To be launched before Expo 2020, the 5-star hotel and hotel apartments has been projected to be completed in 2.5 years. The main contractor Al Habbai Contracting LLC was chosen from a competent list of contracting firms who bid for the project. They have a proven track record of excellence and commitment, that tipped the scales in their favour over other competitors. The project is a marked departure from the standard architectural designs. The asymmetrical balconies, pointed tapered sides add a layered dimension to the building that both inspires and challenges the developer. Al Habbai Contracting LLC shares RSG’s enthusiasm in creating a structure that is a visual masterpiece and reflects the innovative spirit of the firm.

As per the contract, the main contractor will completely focus on the construction of this massive landmark project ‘Sabah Rotana’, aligning with RSG’s core principles of quality and timely delivery of projects.

‘Sabah Rotana’ is a collaboration between accomplished property developer, RSG Group of Companies and Rotana, one of the leading hotel management companies in the region with hotels across the Middle East, Africa and Turkey. The hotel is a premium property that rises to 54-floors and is perfectly poised to offer a bird’s eye view of the breath-taking Dubai skyline and its main attractions. Located on Sheikh Zayed Road, it lies in the prime neighbourhood of Sufouh Gardens and presents a striking vista of the Burj Khalifa and Palm Jumeirah. The solitary tower encompasses 5-star rooms, serviced hotel apartments, food & beverage outlets, nightclubs and meeting rooms among other inclusions. The icing on the cake, however, is the opulent Sky bar where the guests can enjoy an evening with a spectacular view of resplendent Dubai.

Raj Sahni, Founder & Chairman of RSG Group of Companies commented, “The road was long, and it was tough to finalize the main contractor that matched the same level of passion and commitment towards Sabah Rotana. In the end, the search yielded great results in the form of Al Habbai Contracting LLC, whom we welcome to a long partnership with us. As evidenced by their past work, they have validated themselves as the perfect choice for the position. We strongly believe that the product of this collaboration befits the vision that we have for Sabah Rotana.”

At the announcement, Mr. Ali Al Habbai, Chairman & CEO at Al Habbai Contracting LLC said, “It will be a privilege to work on this project with RSG Group of Companies, and we are grateful for the trust they have shown in our capabilities. It will serve as an incentive going forward as we strive to not only achieve but surpass their expectations. We have always believed in going the extra mile and will ensure the timely completion of the project with a perfect score on quality as well.”

The project has already received pre-approval under the category rating of 5-star and Tourism property by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM). Combining ingenuity in architecture with superior services to ensure comfort and convenience, Sabah Rotana is well on its way to becoming an important landmark in Dubai’s iconography.
