Work stops at Canal Point hospital in Dubai

Building work on the Canal Point Hospital at Jumeirah Lake Towers has been put on hold after the client Istithmar cancelled the AED500m ($136m) construction contract with the local Al-Naboodah Contracting.

The project involves the construction of a 200-bed hospital in an eight storey building with two basement levels.

The project originally included a hotel and residential block, but these elements were scrapped before construction work started on the project in 2007.

US-based Burt Hill is the consultant. Istithmar Real Estate, which is part of the local developer Nakheel, is the client (MEED 24:3:06).
