Dubai-based developer Nakheel continues to be involved in high profile projects including creating communities such as residences with beautiful views of the surrounding water and that aim to set the benchmark for the entire construction industry. Some of the undertakings include six marinas along Deira Islands’ waterfront and two marinas at Palm Jumeirah to accommodate more boats and yachts to Dubai’s coastline with a range of additional docks offering mooring facilities directly outside residences.
Nakheel, a fully government owned developer, is responsible for most of what are called ‘Dubai’s coastline enhancement projects’ and they are working hard to turn dreams into reality!
Nakheel Marine Group will be providing world-class marinas and amenities at the islands, while Nakheel itself will be building 16 residential towers, five hotels, and two serviced apartment complexes; they will also build the Deira Mall retail and entertainment complex, an amphitheater seating 30,000 people, and the 5,300-outlet Night Souk set to open in Deira Islands that will spread over 1.9 kilometers of waterfront which will be opened by the end of 2018, according to Ali Rashid Lootah, Chairman of Nakheel.
Meanwhile, the work on Deira Islands beachfront resort, an 800-room resort, is slated for completion in Q3 2019, as is an exclusive beachfront dining, leisure and fitness destination, the St. Regis Beach Club on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.
Another Nakheel development in the works is the Centara Deira Islands Beach Resort that is due to open 2020, which intends to offer unforgettable holiday experiences to guests.
As mentioned Nakheel (at nakheel.com), “Deira Islands will be a world-class hub for tourism, leisure, retail and entertainment, and a key contributor to the Government of Dubai’s tourism vision. The project will add 40km of new coastline to Dubai, house 250,000 residents and create 80,000 new jobs.” The area is made up of four islands and is easily accessible by road bridges or abras running to and from the mainland.
Nakheel believes these construction and infrastructure contracts will improve the quality of life for nationals and visitors. The construction of Deira Mall, for example, will mean the presence of the biggest shopping center in the Middle East in terms of leasable space (4.5 million square feet) that will offer more than 1,000 shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment outlets.
There are a host of new Nakheel developments that are under construction or development — across the residential, retail, hospitality and tourism sectors — on Palm Jumeirah and Deira Islands to enhance the quality of life of the emirate’s residents with new types of amenities that will also attract more visitors and will shape the new Dubai landscape.
