Nakheel awards AED 35 million contract for Badrah Pavilion community centre

Nakheel is adding another neighbourhood centre to its growing collection of retail projects with a new, 72,000 sq ft Pavilion at its Badrah community in Dubai.

The developer has awarded a contract for more than AED35 million to Dubai-based Convrgnt Value Engineering LLC to build the new facility, which will serve nearly 800 homes at Nakheel’s Badrah and Veneto communities.

Badrah Pavilion, the sixth neighbourhood retail centre by Nakheel, will feature 25 outlets including a supermarket, shops, services, cafes and restaurants, plus a gymnasium.

Badrah contains almost 600 townhouses and apartments spread across eight low-rise buildings. Construction is complete, and handovers are ongoing.

Earlier this year, Nakheel opened its first Pavilion at Jumeirah Park, closely followed by a retail hub at Discovery Gardens. The developer is also building community centres at Al Furjan, Jumeirah Islands and International City.

A Nakheel spokesman said, “Nakheel Pavilions enhance our communities by providing convenient shopping facilities and a place to meet, dine and socialise. There has been a great response to our first two, and we look forward to opening more, including the one at Badrah, in the future.” Community Pavilions are just one element of Nakheel’s aggressive expansion into the retail sector. The company is also building large-scale malls at Palm Jumeirah, Deira Islands and Jumeirah Village, and expanding its existing Dragon Mart and Ibn Battuta malls. Combined, these will add 6.1 million sqft to Nakheel’s existing retail leasing offering.
