Dubai-based real estate developer Nakheel has awarded a contract worth $2.3m (AED8.6m) for the construction of a 5km cycling track, a jogging route, and outdoor gyms within its Nad Al Sheba community, located off Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road.

The developer said the project would be delivered “early next year”.

Tracks for biking and running will be built in a loop around the perimeter of the 1,500-villa community.  

In a statement, Nakheel said the four- and five-bedroom community’s homes would be available for lease “soon”, adding that the access road to the project had been completed.

In addition to homes, the Nad Al Sheba community offers facilities such as the Nad Al Sheba Mall – which is currently under construction – in addition to a community club with a restaurant, a pool, a gym, and sports courts.

Nad Al Sheba Mall spans 13ha, and has the space for 200 retail outlets, according to construction listings website ProTenders.

ProTenders’ project page for Nad Al Sheba Mall lists AE7 as the project’s design architect, supervision and infrastructure consultant, interior designer, landscape architect, project manager, structural engineer, and sustainable design consultant.

Metac is named as Nad Al Sheba Mall’s main contractor, according to ProTenders.

AE7’s portfolio in the Mena region includes Dubai Water Canal, Meydan One, Motor City F-1X Courtyard Marriott Hotel, National Rehabilitation Centre, and Mafraq Hospital in Dubai.

The designer has also worked on American Community School in Amman, Jordan, and Al Jadriyah Lake in Baghdad, Iraq.
