Representing one of the main entrances for the new urbanization of the Abdali district, this stage will be followed by the main works package of the towers and annexes, and will include works on 4 plots numbered 5B1, 5B2, 5B3 and 5B4.
The company’s latest project, 'Business Gate', is an 8 storey commercial tower and was launched after its first commercial tower 'Business Heights’, a 20 storey tower to be constructed also in Jordan’s Abdali master planned development. The company was the first to launch a commercial tower in the Abdali area, and it was also the first to introduce a residential project with the launch of ‘The Heights’, a 35 story tower in the same location.
