Dar Alwad Contracting has completed more than 80% of the infrastructure work for Mag Creek Wellbeing Resort in Dubai, a wellness-inspired project worth $599m (AED2.2bn).

Mag Lifestyle Development (Mag LD), the company behind the mixed-use project, said Mag Creek Wellbeing Resort is the first real estate scheme of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa, with 'wellness' at the heart of its design.

With Dar Alwad Contracting racing ahead to complete its infrastructure package, the entire project is now 15% complete, and on track to be built and delivered by Q1 2021.

The resort has been designed in a partnership between Mag LD and US-based wellness real estate company Delos.

Located on the banks of the Dubai Creek, the project includes an 11,148m² wellbeing facility called the World Care Wellness Centre, which Mag LD claims is the largest facility of its kind in the world. It will provide residents and guests alike access to medical check-ups that focus on how to live healthily.

The resort will also have a 96-room hotel and a sports and fitness centre, with a collection of restaurants, coffee shops, and retail outlets.

On the residential front, there will be 17 waterfront mansions, 75 apartments, and 172 holiday homes within the project.
