Nakheel signs Union Coop as anchor tenant at International City retail centre
Nakheel has signed Union Coop supermarket as the anchor tenant at a new, 79,000 square foot community centre at International City.
Union Coop will take up more than 40 per cent (33,333 sq ft) of the community mall, which will have 24 shops, four restaurants and two coffee shops.
The retail facility, due for completion in 2015, will serve tens of thousands of residents at International City, as well as people living at nearby Warsan Village, Nakheel’s newly-launched gated community of 940 townhouses.
A Nakheel spokesman said: “Our new International City retail centre is a prime example of how we continue to enhance and improve our communities with facilities that people want – and need. With this new neighbourhood mall, we are bringing a much needed new venue for shopping, dining and social interaction to one of our biggest and most popular communities.”
Two other Nakheel community centres, currently under construction at Discovery Gardens and Jumeirah Park, are due to open in early 2014. Both are 100 per cent leased. Nakheel is also currently evaluating other locations for further neighbourhood centres.
