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.
