Dubai, UAE – Master developer Nakheel has awarded a contract worth AED35 million for the construction of a sports, health and leisure hub at Dubai’s Jumeirah Park community.

Featuring an Olympic-size swimming pool, one of Dubai’s biggest gyms, a Clubhouse, spa and medical centre, the new destination will combine first-class sports facilities with a range of restaurants, cafes, shops and services to create a health and wellbeing-focussed attraction at the high-end community. There will also be parking for nearly 100 vehicles. 

Dubai-based GBH International Contracting LLC has been appointed to build the centre, which has a built up area of 93,000 square feet. Construction will begin in October.

The centre will have a range of children’s facilities, including a nursery and kids’ pool. Retail amenities will include a supermarket, medical clinic, beauty outlets and everyday convenience stores across 46,000 square feet of leasable space. 

The Clubhouse – home of the pool, restaurant, gym and spa elements of the complex – is set to become the largest of Nakheel’s growing collection of community clubs across Dubai, complementing existing and upcoming clubs at Jumeirah Islands, Jebel Ali Village, Al Furjan, Warsan Village and Jumeirah Village Circle.
