The UAE-based (Emad Azmy-led) ASGC Group (Dubai's largest construction company) was contracted to build the first cruise port terminal of the region. The new real estate Meraas's Dubai Cruise Terminal will be located between Bluewaters and Palm Jumeirah (Dubai Harbour).
The 186-hectares (1,86 km2 / 0,72 ml2) land development project was launched in January 2017 by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum - UAE's VP, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.
As part of the new project, ASGC will conduct all building works for both main cruise terminal buildings with 1-km long quayside. Additionally, the construction company will implement the associated fit-out and external works, and will install buildings' fixtures, fittings and equipment, and will build project's central unit structure.
Upon completion, the cruise ship terminal will feature a combined floor area of 2.7 hectares and daily passenger capacity 15,000.
