Nakheel today welcomed a group of overseas media to Deira Islands, its new, 15.3 sq km waterfront master development in Dubai. 

The journalists, in town for the Big 5 International Building & Construction Show, saw how Nakheel is transforming the area traditionally known as ‘old Dubai’ into a new hub for tourism, leisure and entertainment.

Nakheel has already invested nearly AED9 billion in infrastructure and construction contracts at Deira Islands, with more on the way. 

The reporters – from Germany, Italy, Turkey and Greece – took in a range of Nakheel developments at Deira Islands, including The Night Market, Deira Mall and the company’s hospitality joint venture projects with Spain’s RIU Hotels & Resorts and Thailand’s Centara Hotels & Resorts.
