Nakheel is creating a new community club at Dubai’s Jumeirah Village Circle by adding a pool, sports and restaurant complex to the roof of The Circle Mall.
The JVC Club will feature a 300-seater restaurant, a swimming pool and sundeck, two tennis courts, a gymnasium and landscaped gardens, all with views across the main community park.
Due to open in 2018, JVC Club will be located at the top of The Circle Mall, Nakheel’s 400,000 sq ft retail, dining and entertainment hub, currently construction at the 560-hectare community. Around 25,000 people already live in JVC, with a predicted population of 300,000 when the community is fully complete.
A Nakheel spokesman said: “Nakheel continues to enhance its communities across Dubai with facilities that people want and need. Our new sports and social club at JVC will be a superb new feature at the Circle Mall and hugely welcomed by residents and investors.
“At JVC there is already an emphasis on health, wellbeing and outdoor space, with 33 landscaped parks with jogging tracks and children’s play areas, spanning four million square feet in total. The new club will further promote sports, fitness and social interaction at this rapidly-growing community.”
The Circle Mall complex, due for completion next year, will have 235 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets across three floors. Among them are a multi-screen cinema, Spinneys supermarket and a Faby Land family entertainment centre. There will also be a host of fashion, home and electronics stores, and a wide range of cafes and restaurants. The mall complex also includes a mosque that can accommodate up to 300 people.
Meanwhile across the road at Jumeirah Village Triangle, JVC’s sister community, residents can look forward to preferential membership rates at the leisure club at Nakheel’s new hotel at the Al Khail Avenue mall, due for completion in 2019.
The 18-storey, 256-room hotel, to be managed under the Double Tree by Hilton brand, includes a pool deck, gymnasium, lounge, all-day restaurant, coffee shop and lounge. It will be directly linked to Al Khail Avenue’s 350 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets.
