Dubai-based retail and leisure developer Majid Al Futtaim celebrated on September 4 the topping out milestone for a hotel development in the heart of Dubai, Invest-Gate reports.

Breaking ground in June 2016 with the installation of the initial guide beam, the Aloft City Center Deira completed the installation of the final concrete pour.

The 28,800- square- meter hotel is scheduled for opening in the first quarter of 2018.

The hotel features 304 spacious guest rooms including 29 suites, and offers direct connectivity to the shopping mall.

The Aloft City Center Deira is carried out through partnership between Majid Al Futtaim and Marriott International.
