Dubai Parks & Resorts (DPR) has announced the second batch of leasing partners to join its dining, retail, and entertainment destination, Riverland Dubai.
In total, 34 lease proposals have been signed, combining household names and new brands.
DPR's latest partners include coffee shop The Brass, and UK-headquartered restaurant chain, Giraffe. Riverland Dubai will also feature Taste of Italy, N Burger, Tom's Deli, and Parle food and beverage (F&B) outlets, a Boots pharmacy, and a Mr Camel Memories souvenir shop.
Riverland Dubai’s management has confirmed that it has leased over 50% of the 204,38 sqm of dining and retail space, achieving one of the destination’s key targets for 2015. The project will be located at the centre of the DPR; all guests must pass through the district en route to their destination.
Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, CEO of Dubai Parks & Resorts, said; “We are delighted to be able to announce the new restaurants, cafes and retailers who will be joining us at Riverland Dubai. In just eight months the management team has done an excellent job in securing a number of high-profile and exciting tenants for two-thirds of the 50-plus outlets available at Riverland Dubai. This means that we have exceeded our 2015 target of leasing out 50% of the available space and are on track to open with both unique and internationally recognised tenants."
Four free-to-visit zones – The French Village, Boardwalk, India Gate, and The Peninsula – will make up the dining, retail, and entertainment destination. DPR is set to be the region’s largest integrated theme park destination, with motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai, Legoland Dubai, Legoland Water Park, and the Lapita Hotel.
DPR is set scheduled to open in October 2016.
