Shapoorji Pallonji wins Expo City Dubai's residential tower contract

DUBAI, June 15, 2024

Master developer Expo City Dubai has awarded contracts to four major companies for the construction of its premium project, Mangrove Residences, featuring 450 apartments with a mix of one- to three-bed units along with four-bed loft apartments and three-bed townhouses offering views of Al Wasl Plaza.  
Located at the heart of Expo City and within a five-minute walk of the city’s main attractions, Mangrove Residences is one of three distinct clusters of apartments that form Expo Central. First launched in March 2023, units are fully sold out.
The main contract for the three-tower development was snapped up by Indian construction and engineering group Shapoorji Pallonji International, while the local demolition company USF clinched the contract to remove former Expo 2020 Dubai pavilions and existing structures on the designated plot; Proscape was picked for completing the infrastructure and clearance works and International Foundation Group (IFG) to handle enabling and shoring works.
A major player in the region, Shapoorji Pallonji International has built hundreds of landmark structures globally, including residential, commercial, and hospitality properties.
Groundwork is now complete, with more than 150,000 cu m of earth removed to make way for the foundation, ground slab and basement car park. The project is set to welcome its first residents in early 2026, it stated.
Ahmed Al Khatib, Chief Development and Delivery Officer at Expo City Dubai, said: "Reflecting our commitment to delivering best-in-class urban design as we invest in, and help build, Dubai’s future, we are proud to be working with local and international companies with a proven track record in this field."
"We are making excellent progress on Mangrove Residences and are on schedule to welcome our first residents in the first quarter of 2026, when homeowners can enjoy being part of a vibrant, sustainability-focused community, situated in the heart of Dubai’s growth corridor, and with Expo City’s offices, attractions and events at the doorstep," he added.
Shapoorji Pallonji Middle East CEO Batchu Sagar said: "We are delighted to be selected for the construction work of Mangrove Residences and contribute to the growth of Expo City as a major urban hub in Dubai. The master developer’s vision for the city, as well as its commitment to best practices and the highest standards of quality, align perfectly with our own."
"Working together, we will leverage our expertise and experience to deliver these landmark residences on schedule," he stated.
A second Expo Central development – Sky Residences – is also underway, with the first two towers proving popular with buyers and a third tower due for launch soon.
