Nakheel invites bids for $1.3bn complex

February 2017

Master developer Nakheel is inviting construction proposals for Deira Islands Boulevard, its new Dh5-billion ($1.36 billion) community for 10,000 people, to be built at Deira Islands in Dubai.

The tender involves the construction of 2,924 apartments and townhouses in 16 residential towers spread across four clusters, each containing a swimming pool and extensive retail, restaurant and recreation space.

Due for delivery in 2020, Deira Islands Boulevard lies at the heart of Nakheel’s 15.3-sq-km Deira Islands coastal city, a new hub for living, leisure and hospitality.

Reaching up to 21 floors, the 16 towers will each contain nearly 670 one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments, 65 townhouses and ground-level retail and recreation facilities.

There will be 4,500 podium-level car-parking spaces at the development, which will have a total built-up area of over seven million sq ft.

Set on an area of land spanning more than nine million sq ft – equivalent to nearly 120 international-standard football fields – Deira Islands Boulevard is designed as a self-sustaining community offering highly sought-after living, leisure and retail facilities.

With 20 per cent of the development dedicated to communal outdoor space, including gardens, shaded walkways and a sports and wellness facilities, Deira Islands Boulevard will be the defining landmark of the area traditionally known as ‘Old Dubai’.

Deira Islands Boulevard will be built around Deira Mall, Nakheel’s 6.5-million-sq-ft shopping, dining and leisure destination, a construction tender for which has already been released.

The Boulevard will also contain six further buildings – two hotels, two serviced apartment complexes and two residential – bringing the total number of towers to 22. 

A construction tender for these buildings will be issued in due course, according to Nakheel.
