Dubai-based master developer Nakheel has awarded a contract worth AED35 million for the construction of a sports, health and leisure hub at Dubai’s Jumeirah Park community.
Featuring an Olympic-size swimming pool, one of Dubai’s biggest gyms, a Clubhouse, spa and medical centre, the new destination will combine first-class sports facilities with a range of restaurants, cafés, shops and services to create a health and wellbeing-focussed attraction at the high-end community. There will also be parking for nearly 100 vehicles.
Dubai-based GBH International Contracting LLC has been appointed to build the centre, which has a built-up area of 93,000 sqft. Construction will begin in October.
The centre will have a range of children’s facilities, including a nursery and kids’ pool. Retail amenities will include a supermarket, medical clinic, beauty outlets and everyday convenience stores across 46,000 sqft of leasable space.
The Clubhouse – home of the pool, restaurant, gym and spa elements of the complex – is set to become the largest of Nakheel’s growing collection of community clubs across Dubai, complementing existing and upcoming clubs at Jumeirah Islands, Jebel Ali Village, Al Furjan, Warsan Village and Jumeirah Village Circle.
Jumeirah Park currently has nearly 21,000 residents. Spanning more than 380 hectares, the development is home to 3,000 luxurious villas, verdant parks and communal green spaces, a school and Jumeirah Park Pavilion, Nakheel’s first neighbourhood retail centre, which opened in 2014.
