the 288,000 sqft mar­ket in nad al sheba-3 area, aims to have the col­lec­tion of fur­ni­ture, used elec­tri­cal ap­pli­ances and house­hold ap­pli­ances in one lo­ca­tion rather than be­ing ran­domly spread and un­or­gan­ised, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult for the pub­lic and re-ex­port com­pa­nies.

the dh77-mil­lion project has ap­plied 100 per cent green build­ing stan­dards in line with the vi­sion of his high­ness sheikh mo­hammed bin rashid al mak­toum, vice-pres­i­dent and prime min­is­ter of the uae and ruler of dubai, to pre­serve the coun­try’s re­sources, build a green econ­omy and es­tab­lish an en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able city. mar­wan ab­dul­lah al mo­hammed, di­rec­tor of the gen­eral projects depart­ment at the mu­nic­i­pal­ity, said the fur­ni­ture mar­ket, spread on an area of about 17 hectares, is a com­pre­hen­sive mar­ket for the sale of fur­ni­ture and house­hold ap­pli­ances.

he said the mar­ket will bring to­gether all ac­tiv­i­ties con­nected with fur­ni­ture trade at one place, which will lead to an ex­cel­lent com­pet­i­tive mar­ket com­pared to what ex­ists lo­cally, in the gulf re­gion and even glob­ally through the com­pre­hen­sive frame­work and diver­sity of ex­ist­ing ser­vices in the mar­ket.

al mo­hammed added that the project con­sists of 120 shops dis­trib­uted in six blocks, each con­tain­ing 20 shops in ad­di­tion to pub­lic ser­vices such as restau­rants and toi­lets, 714 park­ing spa­ces for vis­i­tors and 114 park­ing for trucks.

he said that the project also in­cludes other fa­cil­i­ties such as roads and shaded ar­eas for ex­ter­nal dis­play of fur­ni­ture dur­ing lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional fes­ti­vals with the pres­ence of green spa­ces and pub­lic ser­vices. he added that the project is be­ing handed over to the ben­e­fi­ciary depart­ment in dubai mu­nic­i­pal­ity for the pur­pose of oper­a­tion.
