Nakheel expands hospitality portfolio at Dragon City, Ibn Battuta Mall


August 7, 2016 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai-based master developer Nakheel has released construction tenders for new hotels at Dragon City and Ibn Battuta Mall, adding another 670 rooms to its rapidly-growing hospitality portfolio.

Nakheel will build a 295-room hotel at Dragon City, where the Dragon Mart retail and trading hub is located, featuring the one million sqft Dragon Mart 2 shopping, dining and entertainment complex.

The developer will also create a 15-storey, 375-room hotel at Ibn Battuta Mall, where a 300,000 sqft extension opened in May.

The three-star hotels – due for completion in 2017 – complement the existing hotels at the two retail hubs, where further major expansions continue. Nakheel opened a 251-room Accor-operated ibis Styles hotel at Dragon Mart 2 in February, while its 372-room Premier Inn at Ibn Battuta will open in the fourth quarter of this year

With a built-up area of over 180,000 sqft, the new Dragon City hotel will feature a restaurant, coffee shop and gym, while the 280,000 sqft establishment at Ibn Battuta, located by the Metro entrance, will have an all-day restaurant, gym and pool deck.

The Dragon City expansion comprises a 2.2 million sqft retail component, two residential towers comprising 1,120 apartments and a multi-story car park with 6,200 spaces. Once complete, it will bring the size of Dragon City to more than 11 million sqft.

Ibn Battuta’s 4.7 million sqft expansion features a one million sqft mall with glass-covered courtyard, a new cinema complex and a 7,000-space multi-storey car park.

Nakheel also has hotels under development at Palm Jumeirah and Deira Islands, with more in the pipeline.
