Work on the detailed design of Aladdin City, a project inspired by the fables of Aladdin and Sindbad, on Dubai Creek is currently under way, a senior Dubai Municipality official has said.

“We have appointed Meinhardt Group as consultant and they are working on the design of the three buildings,” Daoud Al Hajri toldArabian Business when he held the position of director of the planning department at the municipality.

In September, he was promoted to become assistant director general for engineering and planning.

The consultant has been given a one-year timeframe to complete the detail study.

“The concept design is there with the whole detailed design being completed in a year’s time,” Al Hajri said.

“We are not saying we will do construction tenders after that but it [the design study] will tell us a lot of things.” More info
