“Millennium Place JVT Dubai marks the start of a new chapter for The First Group as we forge ahead with plans to expand our portfolio of hotels in sought-after districts across the city,” Chief Operating Officer Rob Burns said. “We look forward to seeing this modern hotel take shape, a property we believe will set the benchmark for hospitality standards in Jumeirah Village Triangle.”
In attendance at the ceremony were Burns, Chief Investment Officer Rashad Barajakly and Head of Asset Management Mariano Faz from The First Group, along with Chief Operating Officer Francois Kassab, Vice President of Operations David Todd, Vice President of Technical Services Kevin Cairns and Director of Hotel Openings Jad Shamseddin from Millennium & Copthorne.
“We are very excited to have attended this ceremony and witness the considerable progress in the construction of Millennium Place JVT Dubai, thanks to The First Group,” Kassab said. “We look forward to working closely with one of Dubai’s leading property developers to ensure the success of this project. There is a huge demand for quality and affordable hospitality offerings in the UAE and we are confident that this hotel will be a strong addition to both the city and to our portfolio, which we aim to grow to 100 properties by 2020.”
