Construction work is underway on the Centaurus five-star hotel — involving an investment of Rs12 billion — in the Federal Capital..

Pak Gulf Construction , a consortium of Al Tamimi Group of Saudi Arabia and Sardar Builders from Pakistan, will jointly carry out the project. The project includes a 38-storey five-star hotel, three towers of services apartments and a big shopping mall .

Last year, a piece of land in Blue Area was allotted by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to the company for the project. The project is due for completion in 2008.

    The landing pad near the top of the tower is a ditto chappa of the Burj Al Arab helipad which ferries the rich clientele.

    So im guessing some parts of the design are just fiction. And they intend to finish it off in 2008? Thats too fast to be true i say!

    Hmmm mostly seems fiction…but u cannot jus pin it on the basis of a heli pad…coz they are almost the same in all dubai constructions. But considering the fact tht isb now lies in category A of quakes, and also the fact tht the construction site does not seem to be tooooo busy..i am guessing they wud finish it by 2010. But therez a possibility it might look some wat like this…not exactly but somewat.

    its awful but how can you fit this laveshly designed building with the condition of roads and other building conidtions around it. will the onwner of this building have any plan to help CDA to raise the level of infrastructure atleast around this building not to make one feeling alien place after looking at it.

    On my last trip there, i saw something like the base of that huge slant being constructed. but thats it. The sland is supposed to be an add on rather than a build first!

    where was the rest of the construction???
