Nakheel says new Dubai retail centre fully leased

Dubai developer Nakheel said on Sunday it has now fully leased all 10,600 sq m of available space at Jumeirah Park Community Centre, with nearly 30 retailers and restaurants confirmed for the new shopping centre.

Geant supermarket will account for almost a quarter (2,400 sq m) of the community mall, which will primarily serve thousands of residents at Nakheel's Jumeirah Islands, Jumeirah Village and Jumeirah Park developments.

Jumeirah Park Community Centre - currently under construction and due for completion in Q3 2013 - will also have 10 cafes/restaurants and a host of every day convenience stores including a pharmacy, health food store, optician, dry cleaners, beauty salons and money exchange facilities.

Sanjay Manchanda, CEO of Nakheel, said: "Retail expansion in our existing communities is a fundamental part of our business plan.

"Jumeirah Park Community Centre will offer a diverse range of retail and F&B options, providing every day facilities as well as a place to meet, dine and socialise."

Confirmed retailers for Jumeirah Park Community Centre include Geant, The Childrens' Place, Early Learning Centre, Bin Sina Pharmacy, Holland and Barrett, Barakat Optical, Lily Pond, Jet Set, Nail Bar, 1847, Photo Magic, Money Exchange, Champion Cleaners and Geekay Games.

Cafes and restaurants on board include Gloria Jeans, Tim Horton, Pizzaro, Burger Fuel, Subway, San Churro, Café de Roma, Louis Café, Louis Pastries and Menchies.

In July, Nakheel said it had signed a AED27.5m ($7.48m) contract for the construction of Jumeirah Park Community Centre.

Nakheel said it has appointed Parkway International Contracting as main contractor for the community centre.
