Developer eyes progress on new 3.6m sq ft retail, dining and entertainment hub; slated to open in 2018
Developer Nakheel on Sunday released a tender for enabling works for Al Khail Avenue, its new 3.6 million square foot retail, dining and entertainment hub at Dubai's Jumeirah Village Triangle.
The scope of the tender covers infrastructure services relocation, shoring works and excavation ahead of construction of the new mall, which is scheduled to open in 2018.
Nakheel said in a statement that it will release the construction tender by the end of June.
Located alongside Dubai's Al Khail Road, Al Khail Avenue will have 350 shops including a supermarket, department stores and speciality outlets, a multi-screen cinema, entertainment zone and a range of cafes and restaurants including al fresco dining.
There will also be a multi-storey car park spanning nearly two million square feet and accommodating 4,400 vehicles.
Al Khail Avenue is one of 10 large-scale developments in Nakheel's growing retail portfolio.
Nakheel's current and future retail projects boast more than 10 million sq ft of leasable space between them, in the form of upcoming malls and souks at Palm Jumeirah, Deira Islands, Jumeirah Village and Warsan Village; major extensions to Dragon Mart and Ibn Battuta; and six neighbourhood retail centres at communities across Dubai.
