Nakheel awards AED184.5 million construction contract for new hotel at Ibn Battuta Mall

March 23, 2017 Hotel Developments No Comments Email Email

Dubai master developer Nakheel today awarded a construction contract worth AED184.5 million for a second hotel at Ibn Battuta Mall. 

Dubai-based Parkway International Contracting LLC has been appointed to build the 375-room hotel, which has a total project value of AED240 million. It forms part of Nakheel’s AED3 billion hospitality expansion under which the developer is bringing 16 new hotels and serviced apartment complexes – with 5,300 rooms – to Dubai.

The new hotel, to be operated by Thailand’s Minor Hotel Group under its AVANI brand, complements Nakheel’s first hotel at Ibn Battuta – a 372-room Premier Inn that opened last October.

With a built-up area of 278,000 sq ft, the 15-floor AVANI Ibn Battuta Mall features an all-day restaurant, pool, gym and car park for 135 vehicles. It is located next to the recently-opened link connecting the mall to the Dubai Metro.

The hotel is part of a large-scale, phased expansion at Ibn Battuta that will turn the already highly-popular retail hub into a sprawling mixed-use community.

Last year Nakheel opened 150 new shops and the first hotel at the mall, and last month the company Nakheel announced AED850 million-worth of new projects including a 55-floor residential tower, a 16-screen dine-in cinema complex and a 600-space car park. When complete, the complex will have 2.2 million sq ft of shop space, 810 apartments and 747 hotel rooms.

Nakheel’s 16-strong hospitality portfolio includes hotels and serviced apartment buildings – from luxury to more modest accommodation – at locations across Dubai:
