Jeddah – MENA Herald: Emaar Middle East, the subsidiary of global developer Emaar Properties, has awarded the construction contract for its new ‘Emaar Residences’ in Jeddah Gate to Arabian Construction CO (ACC), a leading construction company in the region.

Located in the heart of Jeddah Gate, the integrated master-planned community by Emaar Middle East, ‘Emaar Residences’ features three high-rise towers with only 283 homes including penthouses. The homes are located in close proximity to a wide range of leisure, recreation and retail facilities. Drilling work for the project, which was launched late last year, has started.

Emaar Residences has gained overwhelming response from end-users and long-term investors and is today one of the most sought-after residential projects in Jeddah.

Emaar Middle East is also constructing Emaar Square, with ACC as the construction contractor. Emaar Square is a dedicated commercial precinct in Jeddah Gate, which is scheduled for hand over later this year.

A spokesperson of Emaar Middle East, said: “Jeddah Gate, led by its central location, high quality residences and commercial property, and rich array of amenities, has established its credentials as one of the most in-demand developments in the Kingdom.
