Dubai / WAM
Nakheel awarded a contract worth AED35 million ($9.5 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, cafes, 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 square feet. Construction will begin in October.
Jumeirah Park, one of Nakheel’s most popular communities, currently has nearly 21,000 residents.
