The 50-storey-high Sanaya Amman towers are set to be the tallest buildings in Jordan.

Excavation work at Limitless' US$ 300 million twin tower residential project in Jordan is nearly 70% complete.

Almost 225000 m³ of earth has been excavated to make way for the more than 200 m high Sanaya Amman towers with 1800 m³ of earth being moved each day.

A 124 m long and 74 m wide hole has been created, which, at its deepest plunges more than 40 m below street level. In total, nearly 300000 m³ will be dug, with excavation set for completion later this year.

Bahaa Abouhatab, regional director for Limitless, Levant and Turkey said, "Sanaya Amman sets new standards in creative architecture and sustainability - a landmark destination that combines daring design with eco-friendly systems that will make them the first green buildings in Jordan.

"The development will use wind-generated power and water recycling systems that will cut consumption by -30%. These, combined with energy-efficient glass, sensor lights, central air conditioning and waste management systems, will cut costs by an estimated US$ 2 million each year."

The 50-storey, high-rise Sanaya Amman towers are set to be the tallest buildings in the country. The development will include 500 apartments and will feature more than 10400 m² of retail and recreation space, 5600 m² of green, open space, including a landscaped park and a 1000 m² outdoor communal plaza. Construction of the towers will be completed in 2011.
