The structure is 100% complete, while the blockwork and internal plastering are at 99% and 98% respectively.

External works and the swimming pool are progressing rapidly.
According to Mohamed Ragheb, Executive Director – Engineering Division at Azizi Developments, Aura is one of the many developments the company is looking forward to handing over to the client this year, with two 2020 completions already under the company’s belt and many more to come. “It fills us with immense pride to see this world-class 18-storey development materialise at such a fast-tracked pace. As part of our unwavering pursuit of delivering on our promises, we maintain remarkably high levels of operational efficiency and excellence, all while taking precautionary measures — amid the current global situation — that meet and exceed circulated advisories,” he added.
