The 30 plots, on which third party developers will build a mixed use development including apartment blocks, retail and hotel accommodation, are located in Al Furjan Phase 2, which spans 1.2 million square meters and also includes 500 third party villa plots, already sold by Nakheel. Al Furjan Phase 1, with 800 homes, was completed last year and now has over 2,500 residents.

Last month, Nakheel handed a contract for US$ 11.9 million to UAE-based Metac General Contracting for the construction of Al Furjan’s new, 10,000 square meter retail and recreation center. Featuring a supermarket, more than other 20 shops, 10 cafes and restaurants, a swimming pool, sports courts and parking for 360 cars, the new facility is due to open in March 2016.
