“Our new coastal city, being developed in line with the Government of Dubai’s vision for 2021, paves the way for hundreds of hotels, residences, and attractions, many of which we are developing ourselves under our business diversification strategy.”

With the awarding of the contract to APCC, Nakheel’s construction and infrastructure investment on the development has now exceeded $2bn (AED7.5bn).
