Damac to nearly double size of The Drive shopping strip

The Dubai retail district at Akoya will now be extended to 2.5km long, says developer

Damac to nearly double size of The Drive shopping strip

Damac is to nearly double its retail strip, The Drive at Akoya by Damac, to 2.5km, the Dubai developer announced on Tuesday.

Based on shopping districts such as La Rambla in Barcelona or Piccadilly in London, the retail strip was originally designed to be 1.3km but has now been extended to 2.5km

The Drive will now start from the “Catwalk” community retail centre and stretch to the Trump International Golf Club Dubai, passing attractions such as the outdoor ice-skating rink, outdoor cinema, miniature golf, children’s entertainment area, hotels and low rise golf apartments.

‘’We have seen such a positive response from our customers to The Drive at Akoya that we have decided to evolve the concept further. This includes the lengthening of the experience in addition to the mix of attractions,’’ said Niall McLoughlin, senior vice president of Damac Properties.

It is part of the Akoya by Damac master development, a 42 million square foot golf community off Umm Suqeim Road in Dubai. The project includes mansions, villas, luxurious apartments and a retail centre all around the Trump International Golf Club, Dubai.

Established
in 2002, DAMAC Properties has delivered almost 11,000 units to date and
currently has a development portfolio of over 26,000 units at various stages of
progress and planning as of June 30 2014.
