Technical team working with local authorities to begin launching field work for project
Qatar Diar, the state owned real estate company, has announced that it has started selecting consultants and engineers for a planned resort in Tunisia.
Work on the Tozeur Resort in Tunis will begin soon, the CEO of Qatari Diar said. Khaled Mohammed Al Sayed added that a company team was currently talking to Tunisian authorities about preparing to start work on the project, which is in the southwest of the country.
“Our technical team is currently coordinating with local authorities to prepare for launching field work for the project,” he told Qatar’s Arabic language daily Sharq.
“Our company is also selecting local and international engineers and consultants for various stages of the project, including planning and construction.”
Scheduled to open in 2015, the Tozeur Desert Resort will include 60 luxury suites, high-end health and spa components, retail outlets and restaurants, state-of-the-art conference and business facilities, as well as an amphitheatre and other sports facilities, Diar said.
The Tunis-based Agora consultancy firm has been awarded the design contract for the project, which will cost an estimated $80 million.
