Dubai-based real estate firm wasl properties has announced the launch of "wasl hub" - a new mixed-use project in the Karama neighbourhood of the emirate.

When completed at the end of 2016, wasl hub will feature alley ways and paved temperature-controlled 'sikkas' in and around the residential and retail project providing a comfortable walking environment for residents and visitors even during the hot summer months.

"The launch of wasl hub reflects the ambitions of our integrated strategic plan that focuses on enhancing many of the traditional areas of Dubai and specifically the Karama neighbourhood by providing contemporary living with shopping and entertainment options for residents and visitors alike," said Zainab Mohammed, CEO, Property Management and Marketing, wasl properties.

wasl hub will include more than 70 shops and 32 restaurants and cafes. The project will also feature 312 apartments of one, two and three-bedrooms with parking.

The development will offer additional services such as a swimming pool, children's playground, indoor gyms and around the clock security.

"wasl hub will become a destination for individuals and families who keen to enjoy walking, shopping and the wide range of dining and café outlets within the project," added Zainab.

The announcement follows wasl properties' previous statements relating to the completion of two other projects in Karama in mid-2014 - wasl onyx and wasl amber.

wasl said its Karama projects form part of an integrated plan to revitalise the district and transform it into a modern contemporary neighbourhood.

Since 2008, wasl has introduced a total of 566 residential units spread across seven projects in Karama with another seven Karama projects in the pipeline to be built by 2018.
