UAE Al Arif awarded Makkah contract from Saudi’s Jabal Omar

Saudi’s Jabal Omar Development Company (JODC) has awarded a contract of undisclosed value to UAE builder Al Arif Contracting for Phase 2 of its mixed-use Jabal Omar project in the holy city of Makkah.
The Saudi Arabian developer announced the decision on its verified Twitter account, stating Al Arif Contracting would “complete the remaining work” for the second phase of the project.
Phase 2 includes the building of four mixed-use towers, comprising a hotel managed by Dubai’s high-end hospitality company Jumeirah Group.
The news agency said Al Arif’s scope includes building 1,033 hotel rooms, 100 residential, and 93 commercial units, and is set to complete in 2019.
Al Arif Contracting is a subsidiary of the UAE-based Al Arif Group, which also counts an aluminium supplier and a groundwork contractor among its business units.
Jumeirah Group confirmed the five-star Jabal Omar Jumeirah Makkah Hotel’s development in July 2017, following an agreement between Dubai Holding and JODC.
The hotel will be walking distance from the Grand Mosque and the hotel operator said at the time that the project would be operational in early 2019.
JODC’s Jabal Omar project is a mixed-use development of 40 towers that boasts a total built up area of 2km². When the project is finished, its hotels will have capacity to welcome 36,000 guests per year.
