Nakheel has issued the following announcement today as a progress update on the new shopping destination in JVT. It looks like we can expect some convenient shopping and entertainment options right on our doorstep!
Dear valued resident,
We are delighted to announce the completion of enabling work for the new, AED2 billion Al Khail Avenue mall, with proposals for the construction of the mall itself currently being assessed.
As you may have seen, the completed earthworks have left a giant hole at the Al Khail Avenue site, on the edge of the Jumeirah Village Triangle community. This hole, shown above, is 600,000 cubic metres in volume and big enough to accommodate 240 Olympic-sized swimming pools or 12 Airbus A380 aircraft.
Al Khail Avenue will have 350 shops, a multi-screen cinema, a wide range of cafes and restaurants and a multi-storey car park with 4,400 spaces. More than 60 per cent of the shop space has been booked, with tenants including Waitrose, Reel Cinemas, Home Centre, Emax, Centrepoint, Sports One, Gap, Mamas & Papas, Armani Exchange, Banana Republic and more.
Al Khail Avenue will provide convenient shopping and entertainment for people in Jumeirah Village, Jumeirah Park and other nearby communities, and be a new destination for residents and tourists across Dubai and other emirates.
