Merex Investment Consolidates Leasing and Appoints Lead Contractor for J1 Beach at la Mer

The planned redevelopment of La Mer into a beachfront resort destination reflects Merex Investment’s strategic focus on creating enduring value through identifying market opportunities and reshaping its offering to fulfil customer needs.

J1 Beach at La Mer will feature a cohesive customer experience and intentionally designed touchpoints that would set it apart from existing attractions in Dubai.

Set to be the next must-visit destination in Dubai, J1 Beach at La Mer will feature an impressive selection of high-end dining options and scenic beachfront experiences. The first phase of the leasing process for this 500-meter-long destination is now more than 90 per cent complete, with ten exciting concepts already confirmed for its grand opening.

Among the main attractions of J1 Beach will be its diverse range of signature restaurants, which include Dubai outposts for Michelin-starred establishments, original food concepts, and licensed venues.

Patrons can enjoy French, Middle Eastern, Asian-Mediterranean, and Pan-Asian cuisines. The destination will also house three renowned beach clubs - Gigi Rigolatto, Bâoli, and Sirene Beach by Gaia - offering visitors a memorable beachfront experience from dawn to dusk.

"Our vision for J1 Beach is to create a must-visit destination in Dubai. Along with our unique tenants, we are building a cohesive customer experience. Our partners at ARCO Turnkey Solutions are on track to bring to life this vision with smart design and efficient construction,” said Shahram Shamsaee, CEO of Merex Investment.

La Mer South is undergoing redevelopment to create a unique dining district featuring beachfront experiences, signature restaurants, original food concepts, and licensed venues. J1 Beach at La Mer will be the centrepiece of this development, offering uninterrupted sea views and premium F&B offerings.

Nestled along the shoreline of Jumeirah 1, and just a stone's throw away from central Dubai, visitors can enjoy stunning sea and city skyline views of the Burj Khalifa, making this location a unique destination in the region.

J1 Beach at La Mer captures the essence of the French Riviera, offering a blend of refined elegance and sophistication that will captivate the interest of tourists and residents. To enhance the convenience for visitors, each beach club and restaurant will have a dedicated valet service, along with a shuttle option, covered walkways, and even a jetty for arrival by boat.
