Nakheel will construct a 620,000-sqm retail, dining and entertainment hub on Deira Islands, its new 15.3-sq-km waterfront development in Dubai.

The developer has awarded a contract for nearly Dh40 million to RSP Architects, Planners and Engineers as the design and supervision consultant for Deira Islands Mall, which will have more than 200,000 sq m of leasable space, hundreds of shops, cinemas and a wide variety of cafés and restaurants.

RSP is also the appointed design consultant for Nakheel Mall on Palm Jumeirah.

Nakheel has also awarded consultancy services contracts for eight substations at Deira Islands. Two engineering consultancies – Green Energy and Energoprojekts – will carry out design review and infrastructure site supervision services for the 132/11kv substations that will supply power to the four-island development, the company said.

Deira Islands Mall will be complemented by a diverse range of other attractions being developed by Nakheel at the new waterfront city, including a night market, hotel, amphitheatre for 30,000 people and a marina that can accommodate large yachts.

Deira Islands will add 40km to Dubai's coastline, including 21km of beachfront, and pave the way for hundreds of tourism, leisure and residential developments such as hotels, resorts, serviced apartments, mixed-use buildings and waterside homes.

Last month Nakheel launched the tender for the design and construction of nine beaches on two of the four Deira Islands. In April the developer awarded contracts worth more than Dh47 million to US-based AE7 for infrastructure design and architectural and engineering services on the project.
