The Nice cluster will feature a Youth Hub, as well as bicycle trails and a skate park, while there will be splash pools and a beach area reminiscent of the idyllic French city.

“After our recent contracts awarded for the Costa Brava construction commencement, we are thrilled to be announcing the start of works for the Nice cluster. We are most pleased to be keeping pace with what is one of our most exclusive community projects, given the scale of space and offerings we have in store,” said Mohammed Tahaineh, General Manager of DAMAC.
