Former Danish striker Ebbe Sand will develop the world’s first sustainable sports hub in Jumeirah Golf Estates development in Dubai.
Covering an area of 500,000 square feet, The Green Sports Hub by Ebbe Sand will include a sports academy, climate lab, swimming pool, indoor and outdoor climbing walls, zip line, skateboard park, martial arts training centre, and sports research facility. The project will be completed late 2018.
The hub will have solar power, waste management, water preservation and reuse systems in place, with the skateboard park designed to act as a rainwater reservoir.
The project will also include a sustainable boutique hotel concept, meeting facilities and F&B outlets with talks going on with local and global operators and anchor tenants to lease the space.
Yousuf Kazim, CEO, Jumeirah Golf Estates, said: “Through the development of Green Sports Hub by Ebbe Sand, we are committed to supporting the UAE’s sporting stars and aspiring athletes, by providing them with a platform to excel at all levels.”
Sand said: “Through the Hub, I look forward to bringing extensive and varied sporting facilities to Dubai, as well as to creating a vibrant and multi-functional sustainable attraction that is used as a social and educational resource among local and international visitors.”
