Dubai-based developer Zabeel Properties has begun talks with three contractors to build a $1.7bn hotel in the emirate, reported our sister company MEED. The companies that have been approached are the local/UK Al-Naboodah Laing O'Rourke, Arabtec Construction, and Khansaheb Civil Engineering, both local. Zabeel has appointed Los Angeles-based Graft as the design consultant for the resort and is bringing in the actor Brad Pitt to be one of the design consultants.
