The luxury golf community, Jumeirah Golf Estate will see the completion of infrastructure works, dedicated power substation and more than 300 villas before next year-end.
Work has begun on the 132KV power substation, which will be ready by next year, with Alstom, a French conglomerate being the contractor for construction, testing and commissioning the substation. The substation is currently 64percent complete, revealed a Nakheel spokesperson.
The company also hopes to complete 160 villas in Whispering Pines in November 2012, while 99 villas and 47 mansions in the Flame Tree Ridge and Fireside respectively, are likely to be ready by December 2012.
The ETA-Ascon-Star Group Company, Ascon Road Construction, has begun working on the main infrastructure, completing works associated with district road, main ring road, district roads and underground utilities such as irrigation, water and sewage systems. The main infrastructure works are almost 57percent complete, with more progress likely in the coming months.
Electrical works are likely to begin this quarter. A UK-based private construction solutions provider, Laing O’Rourke, will deliver all 160 villas in the Whispering Pines district, a community of three and four bedroom villas in Tuscan style. The infrastructure works are making good progress too.
According to Nakheel spokesman, the project is almost 43 percent complete, and will be completed by November 2012.
Meanwhile, the Dubai-based Al Nekhreh Contracting has begun working on the Flame Tree Ridge and Fireside districts, with 99 villas on Flame Tree Ridge and 47 Mansions on Fireside to be ready by December 2012. At present, Flame Tree Ridge is 46percent complete and Fireside is 55percent complete.
The Flame Tree Ridge comprises five-bedroom villas located between Fire and Earth courses, and offers wonderful views of both. The vibrant Flame Tree is known for its great orange-red flowers.
Designed by Greg Norman, Fireside is considered as most prestigious among all its developments. It comprises 66 five and six bedroom houses, built around tranquil gardens and tiered fountains.
Nakheel, during the month of June, confirmed that the Dubai government will offer funding for completion of development, covering an area of 1119 hectares. But, work has been suspended on Water and Wind, of the four courses in 2009.
