ImageThe Tourism Development and Investment Corporation (TDIC) will appoint a contractor to construct the Louvre Musuem on Saadiyat Island by the end of the year. TDIC assistant development director said “By the end of the year an announcement will be made about the Louvre.”   French architect Jean Nouvel designed the project which is expected to be complete in 2013.  A short list of contractors bidding for the project includes Al Habtoor Leighton and Arabtec Construction.
