The main structure and 60 percent of the entire construction work at the Palazzo Versace Dubai project is now complete, the resort‚Äö√Ñ√¥s developers said.
So far, more than 91,000 m3 of concrete, 20,000 tonnes of reinforcing steel and over 3,500,000 man hours have gone into creating the 170,000 sq m luxury resort, which is due to be complete early next year.
The 4.3 hectare development is being developed by Emirates Sunland Group and Versace and is being built by the Dubai-based Arabtec construction firm.
‚Äö√Ñ√∫The main structure of Palazzo Versace Dub ai is now complete and we are over 60 percent build complete for the entire resort. The external landscaping, along with the inclusion of the luxurious swimming pools will soon commence.

The Dubai resort will be the second Palazzo Versace, following the first hotel on Australia‚Äö√Ñ√¥s Gold Coast, and the developers are aiming to open a further 13 resorts worldwide.
