Nakheel unveils new retail project in Dubai
Located on the southern side of International City, the International City Pavilion boasts 7,618m2 of leasing space and 250 parking lots
Dubai developer Nakheel has unveiled the International City Pavilion, a new shopping and dining hub with 24 shops, restaurants and services.
This in line with its $4.3bn (AED16bn) retail expansion strategy that will bring 158ha of new shop space to Dubai.
The project, which has a development value of nearly $24.4m (AED90m), was officially inaugurated by Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah.
Located on the southern side of International City, adjacent to Nakheel’s new Warsan Village community, the International City Pavilion boasts 7,618m2 of leasing space and 250 parking lots.
About 6,503m2 of the leasing space has opened with the rest undergoing fit out, said the statement from Nakheel.
There are also plans to extend the Pavilion with a cinema, which has already been leased to an operator.
Lootah said: "We are committed to enhancing our communities with services and facilities that people want and need. International City Pavilion is a new venue that meets the every-day requirements of this vibrant, every popular community by providing a convenient place to shop, dine and socialise.
"Meanwhile, for those looking for specialist shops or a wider choice of restaurants or entertainment, there are over 1,000 just around the corner at the recently-opened Dragon Mart 2."
International City Pavilion serves more than 100,000 residents at International City, and offers on-the-doorstep shopping for the Warsan Village community of 940 townhouses, where handovers are due to begin in November.
