Convrgnt Value Engineering wins $9mn Nakheel deal
Company to build 72,000ft2 Badrah Pavilion in Dubai
Dubai-based Convrgnt Value Engineering LLC has been awarded a contract worth more than AED35mn ($9mn) to build a new retail project in the Emirate.
The 72,000ft2 Badrah Pavilion – the sixth neighbourhood retail centre by Nakheel - will feature 25 outlets including a supermarket, shops, services, cafes and restaurants, plus a gymnasium.
Badrah contains almost 600 townhouses and apartments spread across eight low-rise buildings. Construction is complete, and handovers are ongoing.
Earlier this year, Nakheel opened its first Pavilion at Jumeirah Park, closely followed by a retail hub at Discovery Gardens. The developer is also building community centres at Al Furjan, Jumeirah Islands and International City.
A Nakheel spokesman said: “Nakheel Pavilions enhance our communities by providing convenient shopping facilities and a place to meet, dine and socialise. There has been a great response to our first two, and we look forward to opening more – including the one at Badrah – in the future.”
Nakheel is also building large-scale malls at Palm Jumeirah, Deira Islands and Jumeirah Village, and expanding its existing Dragon Mart and Ibn Battuta malls. Combined, these will add 6.1mn ft2 to the company’s existing retail leasing offering.
