Jordan: Samarah Dead Sea Resort makes progress
Emaar International Jordan, the subsidiary of Emaar Properties and developer of Samarah Dead Sea Resort, has made progress on the construction of Samarah Dead Sea Resort. Excavation and blinding concrete for three buildings within Rift Living – a key component of Samarah Dead Sea Resort - have been completed and foundation work is progressing.
Leading Jordanian contractors are working on the project, which will further energise the tourism potential of the region. Samarah Dead Sea Resort is in line with the growth plan for Jordan as outlined by the King Abdullah II Fund for Development.
Mr Nabil Zard Abu Jaoude, Managing Director, Emaar International Jordan, said: “Samarah Dead Sea Resort is a pioneering master-planned community that sets new benchmarks in construction and architectural practices in the Kingdom. Pursuing LEED certification for a component within the project is one of the several steps we have taken to attain our sustainable developmental objectives.”
He added: “We are currently on-going with the construction work of Samarah Dead Sea Resort with a team of skilled personnel on-site. We have planned the construction schedule and contractor mobilisation to achieve our targets and deliver homes within Samarah Dead Sea Resort on time.”
Rift Living is located directly on the Dead Sea, adjacent to the waterway and across Wadi Mukheiris from the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre and Samarah Dead Sea Resort Sales Centre. It features nine low rise buildings (The Apartments) located on the seafront comprising 223 Mediterranean-styled multi-family apartments. Amenities include walkways, neighbourhood shopping and easy access to a full-fledged Club House. The sale of homes within Rift Living has been launched to strong response from Jordan and internationally.
Emaar International Jordan has opened its corporate office in Amman at the Rabia Towers, and a fully-equipped Sales Centre, the first of its kind in the Kingdom. Several contracts have been awarded to leading Jordanian contractors to undertake the construction of the project.
