The foundation stone has been laid for a $92-million (108-billion-Iraqi-dinar) project to build 716 apartments in Dhi Qar, following the resolution of land disputes in the area.
The Kashmara-1 project is being undertaken by the Al Mansour Company for Constructional Contracts, an affiliate of Iraq’s construction and housing ministry, and the UK’s Sections Contracting & Trading Company, and is scheduled to be completed within 900 days.
Dhi Qar Governor Hameed Al Ghazi said the local government is also planning to build a second residential complex next to Kashmara 'on an investment basis.'
