Dubai developer Nakheel has awarded a contract worth Dhs35m for the construction of a sports, health and leisure hub at Dubai’s Jumeirah Park community, it announced on Tuesday.

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

Featuring an 16,000sqft Olympic-size swimming pool, a massive gym, a clubhouse, spa and medical centre, the new destination will also feature restaurants, cafes, shops and services.

There will also be parking for nearly 100 vehicles.

The centre will also have 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 sq ft of leasable space.

Construction will begin in October, a statement said.

The project, announced in April, is scheduled to open in 2019.

The clubhouse – which will feature 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 those at Jumeirah Islands, Jebel Ali Village, Al Furjan, Warsan Village and Jumeirah Village Circle.

Jumeirah Park currently has nearly 21,000 residents.

Spanning more than 380 hectares, the development has 3,000 luxury villas, parks and communal green spaces, a school and Jumeirah Park Pavilion – Nakheel’s first neighbourhood retail centre, which opened in 2014.
