Nakheel has awarded contracts worth more than Dh47 million for design and supervision services on Deira lslands. Nakheel appointed AE7 for the design and supervision services, including master planning, parcelisation and infrastructure design for the 15.3-sq-km waterfront city, under a contract worth Dh28 million.
The same firm was awarded a contract worth Dh19.5 million for architectural and engineering services for the built form of the Night Market and Board Walk, two main attractions on the project's 4.5 million-5q-m south island. The unique creek-side destination will be easily accessible from the mainland by road bridges and abras.
The island's other attractions will include a large shopping mall, an amphitheatre for 30,000 people and a marina that can accommodate large yachts.
Tender documents for the construction of infrastructure are expected to be released next month. The master developer has already witnessed great interest in the project when it released the first phase of plots in March, ranging from 50,000 - 670,000 sq ft, for hotel and resort development on two of the four islands that make up the project.
Deira Islands, which will add 40km to Dubai's coastline, including 21km of beachfront, is expected to contribute significantly to Dubai's tourism vision, as it will pave the way for the development of hundreds of hotels and serviced apartments, mixed-use buildings and residential waterside developments.
