The 40-storey tower will be located alongside the Red Sea. Damac Properties Chairman Hussain Sajwani said: "We are pleased to announce the signing of this agreement with Kasktas Arabia as our official enabling work contractor for Al Jawharah. This agreement will add a lot of value to our project portfolio. Kasktas Arabia has a very strong record for delivering top quality projects that adhere to global standards.
He added "the appointment of Kasktas comes after support by the Jeddah Municipality in the facilitation in obtaining required permits for the start of this project. Their guidance and input has assisted us greatly''.
