Rodeo Drive style shopping arrives in Dubai
UAE based real estate developer Damac Properties has announced the development of Akoya Drive, a long shopping strip experience in the emirate. Similar in length to ‘The Walk’ at Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR) and inspired by Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and Champs Elysees in Paris, Akoya Drive will stretch 1.3km through the Akoya by Damac luxury golf community.
The strip will house an outdoor ice-skating rink, cinema screen and interactive kids play area. The area will be longer than 13 football pitches end to end, the statement said, adding that more than 80,000 people will live within 16km of Akoya Drive by the time is completed.
Akoya by Damac is a 42 million square foot golf community off Umm Suqeim Road in Dubai. The project includes mansions, villas, luxurious apartments and retail centre. The project also includes a 14 million sq ft extension to the original 28 million sq ft, with a dedicated 4.3 million sq ft of open parkland.
