New Markets for Old Furniture and Utensils Ready- Dubai
September, 25th 2017
Dubai will soon open new markets for used building materials and electrical appliances, and used furniture and utensils following the completion of the construction of their buildings.
Director General of Dubai Municipality, Hussain Nasser Lootah, recently visited the buildings of the new markets, which have been completed and handed over to the municipality by the contractors, the civic body said in a press release. The opening dates for the buildings will be announced soon.
The objective of the project is to have all used furniture, electrical appliances and household utensil showrooms in one location rather than allowing them to spread randomly in an unorganized way within the city, making it cumbersome for the majority of the public and re-export companies to purchase and locate the appropriate items and transport them.
The scrap market for building materials and electrical appliances in Warsan includes a main building consisting of 71 shops with public services, fast food outlets, market administration office, a mosque for men and women, 80 parking lots for trucks, 53 outdoor display outlets, loading and unloading areas and 760 parking spaces for visitors.
Built at a cost of Dh100 million, the market has a building area of 43,000 square metres on a land area of 11 hectares, the municipality said.
The used utensils and furniture market in Nad Al Sheba 3, includes 120 shops, half of them for the sale of furniture and the rest to sell utensils. It also includes an external plaza, market administration office, restaurant area for selling snacks, service buildings, toilets and other facilities.
The market, has a building area of 28,800 square meters on a land area of 17 hectares and is built at a cost of Dh77 million,
Lootah pointed out that these projects are part of the efforts of the Government of Dubai to complement the specialized market projects offered by the emirate, in line with the growth and development, the two streams that have made Dubai a prominent city competing with the world’s finest cities.
