Dubai Maritime City Phase I infrastructure works 70pc completed

DP World, the Dubai-based global provider of smart logistics solutions, has announced that work is progressing at a steady pace on its Dubai Maritime City development which is on track for completion next year.
Around 70 per cent of the road and infrastructure works within Phase One of the residential and commercial development at DMC have been completed.
These works will provide DMC with an efficient and sustainable infrastructure to support a modern business community, and enable the vision of sub-developers.
The development consolidates DMC's status as a leading maritime services provider. The significant achievement to date in the Phase One work relates to the completion of all underground services on Sheikh Rashid Road, one of the project's main arteries providing access to the sub-developers' plots located alongside the seaside corniche area. 
Additional features completed in this area also include road infrastructure, illumination and other elements, it stated.
DP World said the other parts of the work advanced during this period, which apply to the overall development, include the completion of approximately 90% of deep sewerage and drainage services, and around 80% progress on the potable water, fire, irrigation and telecom networks. 
Other essential works currently under execution include the main pump stations, water storage and discharge points, it stated.
On the project progress, Group Chairman and CEO Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said: "It is a source of pride for all of those who have worked on this important project at Dubai Maritime City. Teams have been able to execute their tasks in a timely manner despite the unprecedented challenges associated with Covid-19 restrictions and precautions."
"The efforts made on the project have assured the overall Phase I completion by Q1, 2021, delivering all major and minor infrastructure expected from a modern and sustainable community which will provide users and sub-developers with the optimal environment and lifestyle," stated Bin Sulayem. 
"We look forward to DMC's continued success and contribution to the economy," he added.
Dubai Maritime City, the world's first purpose-build maritime centre, is a man-made peninsula. 
While its primary focus is corporate maritime, this exceptional mixed-use environment covers every aspect of industrial, commercial and leisure requirements for the maritime fraternity. Its sea-based location offers easy access to thriving businesses and stunning views of Dubai's coastline and the harbour.
The multi-purpose maritime cluster will create a unique environment for the global maritime community.
Infrastructure Phase One works integrate DMC with the Mina Rashid area (P & O Marinas) that includes Marina views, Marina Cubes, Marinas, and other commercial and residential facilities.
There are other phases that will follow: Phase Two for the Industrial Precinct (in 2023) and Phase Three and Phase Four for the Commercial Precinct.-TradeArabia News Service
