UAE. Nakheel today signed an AED27.5 million (US$7.5 million) contract for the construction of Jumeirah Park Community Centre, a new, 10,600 sqm facility in the company’s growing retail portfolio.
 
Nakheel has appointed Parkway International Contracting as main contractor for the community centre, which will primarily serve 4,200 homes in Jumeirah Islands, Jumeirah Village Triangle and Jumeirah Park.  It will include a Geant supermarket, cafes, a pharmacy, dry cleaner, salons and other everyday convenience stores.
 
Construction of Jumeirah Park Community Centre – one of several developments in Nakheel’s retail expansion pipeline – will begin immediately, and is expected to be completed in 12 months. 
 
The company has already leased most of retail outlets at the centre, with anchor tenant Geant taking 2,400 sqm – almost a quarter of the available space.
