Falconcity Of Wonders Appoints Pyramid Designer

The appointment was announced at the Annual Investment Meeting in Dubai. The FCW project is expected to cost Dhs20 billion.

Dubai’s Falconcity of Wonders (FCW), the megaproject that will encompass replicas of the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal, has appointed the consultation firm that will oversee the design of the Small Pyramid – another replica of one of the wonders of the world.

Arab Experts Engineering Consultants will take charge of the project, one of FCW’s main draws as it attempts to replicate the famous Egypt pyramids.

The Small Pyramid – the smallest of three – will be a multi-functional complex, featuring offices alongside tourist attractions. The appointment was revealed on Tuesday at the Annual Investment Meeting in Dubai.

Salem Al Moosa, chairman and CEO of Falconcity, said: “We are pleased to announce the appointment of Arab Experts Engineering Consultants (AREX) to design and supervise the Small Pyramid.

“With AREX, we will now be putting our vision on track to reality of a self-contained and multi-faceted destination in Dubai. Together we are confident that we can successfully bring Falconcity of Wonders to life, as a living architectural wonder.”

Speaking to Gulf Business last year, Al Moosa said the entirety of FCW will cost approximately Dhs20 billion. The project will encompass replicas of some of the world’s most famous man-made structures, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

The megaproject, to be built alongside the Mohammed bin Zayed Road, is expected to offer thousands of new homes including four-bedroom townhouses and five-bedroom villas.

“With the Dubai property market gaining momentum, there’s a lot of long-term potential for FCW to promote more units and components,” said Al Moosa.

“Sought for by many of our clients, the response has been overwhelming and the first tenants have already moved into completed projects,” he added.
