We are proud to unveil another unique range of projects that will reinforce Dubai as a world-leading location for living, leisure, business and tourism
– Nakheel chair Ali Rashid Lootah

Dubai developer Nakheel has unveiled a pipeline of new leisure developments across the emirate, collectively worth AED4bn (US$1.08bn, €908m, £806.8m).

The company used last week’s Cityscape Global real estate convention as a platform to announce the new projects, which are all phased additions its previous leisure schemes.

These include a luxury high-rise beachfront residential complex on Palm Jumeirah; a residential, mall, hotel and health resort at Discovery Gardens; a unique collection of homes and leisure attractions at Jumeirah Park; a new hotel at Jumeirah Village Circle; and six marinas for a total of 614 boats and yachts at Deira Islands.

“We are proud to unveil another unique range of projects that will reinforce Dubai as a world-leading location for living, leisure, business and tourism.”

Architecture, design and construction teams for the projects have not yet been revealed.
