The new retail destination in DIFC, Gate Avenue, has seen construction starting back in April this year and is currently at full swing. This new premium development located in the middle of the financial centre of Dubai is set to be the biggest retail and entertainment project since DIFC’s launch 12 years ago.
Habtoor Leighton Group(HLG) have been awarded the Dh500 million construction contract. Well known projects in which the Group has taken part in the Emirate are: The Burj Al Arab, The Habtoor Grand Beach Resort and Spa, The Movenpick Hotel in JBR and The Kempinski Hotel on Palm Jumeirah to name a few.
Gate Avenue won’t just be about retail and entertainment but will also be a way to connect the entire district. This unique project will have a series of spacious indoor and outdoor themed areas and walkways linking the podium levels of all buildings located in DIFC.
The community is already well known for its fine restaurants and bars but with the addition of Gate Avenue, DIFC is set to become one of the leading dining and retail destination in Dubai
The first phase of the project is due for completion by the end of 2017.
