Limitless has launched a series of interactive community initiatives for office tenants at Downtown Jebel Ali, kicking off with a health and nutrition networking event, led by Dubai-based dieticians Nathalie Haddad and Nadine Tayara.
Delegates discovered how the food they eat affects their health and, with a good diet, they can cut the risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and other medical complications, before sampling a range of low fat, energy boosting food. At the same time, they met and mingled with fellow tenants who have set up offices in the 200 hectare development, master planned by Limitless.
Around 1,000 people are currently based at Downtown Jebel Ali’s four newly-completed office towers – part of an eight-building complex known as The Galleries – with more moving in shortly.
Salah Ameen, Downtown Jebel Ali Project Director, said: “Downtown Jebel Ali is more than a place to live or work. It’s also a place for healthy lifestyles in a community setting. At the Galleries, our A-grade offices are filling up fast with local firms and global companies who have chosen Dubai as their regional hub. Our community initiatives will enhance The Galleries as a choice location, where friendships are created and business relationships are enhanced.”
Nutritionist Nathalie Haddad said: “Hectic lifestyles and busy schedules can mean that a healthy diet goes by the wayside. Despite an increase in the availability of low fat products, the UAE still has a high rate of obesity. By following a balanced diet and eating small meals regularly, people will feel healthier, reduce the risk of illness and improve their mood, productivity and energy levels.”
Businesses can lease areas from 3,500 to 15,000 square feet – and take multiple floors – in The Galleries, where four additional towers offering apartments, retail, recreational and more offices are due for completion this year. The Galleries’ landscaped grounds will include water features, open spaces, plazas and shaded rooftop gardens.
