Dubai Motor City to get mall with Olympic sized swimming pool and a diving centre
Life in Motor City is about to get much easier for its residents.
The district that is known for its many walk ways and for housing Dubai Kartdome, is about to get an upgrade. Union Properties, one of Dubai's leading property developers, has announced that it is going to build two brand new projects
The first project will be a massive mall called The Central. The area’s first mall will span across 100,000sqm which will be equally distributed over four floors. It will feature a diving centre, an indoor running track, Olympic sized swimming pool and six indoor basketball courts – as Motor City is one of the most active neighbourhoods in the city, it seems fitting.
The mall will also feature an automobile museum that will allow classic car collectors and manufacturers to display their collections. The project will also feature a “centre” that will act as a sales showroom for used and classic cars.
The second development will be a brand new hotel management company. Al Etihad Hotel Management will develop and manage a number of luxury hotels and furnished residences in Dubai.
The project is also expected to provide hospitality services and facilities management for Motor City’s many serviced apartments and hotel rooms.
Speaking on the news, the chairman of Union Properties Nasser Butti Omair bin Yousef said: “Guided by a new management team, masterplan and projects, Union Properties is beginning a new chapter in its proud history. We have identified the creation of divisions in the mall and hotel sectors as being key drivers for the next stage of Union Properties’ success that will serve to diversify our revenues while enhancing our communities.”
He added: “The opening of our new Union Malls subsidiary is the natural extension of this commitment that will enable us to create fantastic new shopping and leisure destinations in key developments like Motor City.”
“Dubai is one of the world’s most dynamic travel and tourism destinations, with Union Properties well placed to serve the increasing levels of demand anticipated over the coming years. Al Etihad Hotel Management will give us access to this important market and add new infrastructure to our communities.”
