Project set to be handed over by contractor to Union Coop in July 2020
Union Coop, the largest consumer cooperative in the UAE, has announced that 92% of work has been completed on its Warqa City Mall project, which is being developed at an investment of $58.5 million in Dubai.
The project comes within the framework of Union Coop’s plan for a strategic expansion and increasing its outreach to serve members of society and contribute towards obtaining a unique shopping experience, a statement from the cooperative said.
Located in the Al Warqa 3 area of Dubai, the project overlooks Tripoli Street, which separates the area of Al Warqa from Mirdif and leads to Emirates Road. Furthermore, the strategic location enables the mall to serve a large segment of the population of the region, the statement added.
The retail destination consists of two basements, ground, first floor and an offices floor, with a total built-up area of 673,000sqft. The two floors of the basement and part of the ground floor are allocated to parking lots with a total of 671 spaces, divided into 224 spaces per basement floor, and an addition 223 parking spaces on the ground floor.
The mall will also contain 44 stores, with an area of 56,664sqft, distributed into 26 stores on the ground floor and 18 on the first floor. The second floor will house Union Coop management offices, with an area of 55,000sqft, the statement elaborated.
CEO Khalid Humaid Bin Diban Al Falasi said: “Al Warqa’a City Mall project is in the final finishing stages and under inspection by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority for power connection. The showroom shelfing and refrigerating equipment are already supplied and the installation has started.”
“The project will be delivered by the contractor in the middle of the next month,” he stated.
Union Coop has coordinated with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to implement the roads surrounding the mall as well as the link to Tripoli’s main street, at a total cost of $6.8 million.
More than 20% of the work has been completed and all roads will be ready by mid-July, he concluded.
