The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences is still on track for a 2019 completion despite slight changes in design, a report said.
Construction Week had quoted Pierre Sironval, managing director of contractor Six Construct - the company spearheading the development - who said: "The Royal Atlantis is progressing a little slower than expected because of some adjustments to the design. These adjustments have been conducted over the past year in close collaboration with the client."
At the moment, we are [completing] the ground floor, and we have also started work on the project’s six towers,” Sironval continued. “The vertical shafts are moving, and we are closing the basement, which is huge. We still expect the property to be complete and open somewhere in 2019," he said.
The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences is a 43-storey project which is being built at a cost of $1.4 billion. It is located on the crescent of The Palm and next to the iconic Atlantis resort and will offer 231 residences and 795 new lavish guest rooms and suites in the resort on over 10 hectares of land. - TradeArabia News Service
