Circle Mall, Nakheel’s go-to shopping destination at JVC, announced the opening of Studio X, a state-of-the-art venue that is designed to enable qualified professionals, self-employed freelancers and certified specialists to hold classes across a spectrum of activities, including dance, martial arts, mind and body, education, music, arts and crafts, for adults and children in nearby communities.

Located at the mall’s rooftop, Studio X features three brand new stylish studios designed by award winning architecture firm Accent Group as well as storage space, available for leasing by professionals looking for a space to teach their respective crafts. Offering a flexible platform, two studios can be opened to each other to accommodate larger classes, performances or events.

Studio X aims to empower certified specialists to teach what they are most passionate about, making a range of classes accessible to JVC and neighbouring communities. Inspiring clients to try out a new activity and discover a new passion, Studio X seeks to provide a rewarding experience that leads to a greater sense of fulfilment and involvement in the community. Professionals can also enjoy competitive benefits such as leasing the studios for free for a trial period as well as retaining all proceeds that come from clients.

Omar Khoory, Chief Assets Officer at Nakheel, said: “We are pleased to welcome Studio X to Circle Mall’s ever-growing portfolio. Not only is it an excellent addition to the mall’s dynamic rooftop, but it also supports our overarching aim in building fully serviced destinations that meet the ever-evolving requirements of our community residents. Placing small business owners at the heart of what we do has been a key driver behind this partnership, and we invite entrepreneurs, licensed professionals and specialists to make Studio X top-of-mind for building and growing their customer base and advancing their business forward.”

Yasmine Abu-Sharif, General Manager at Studio X, said: “We are extremely excited to partner with Nakheel for the launch of Studio X at Circle Mall. At Studio X, we are committed to bringing world-class facilities and services to children and adults alike. In line with Circle Mall’s aim to support a thriving community like JVC, Studio X was established as a platform that enables freelancers and professionals to share their passions across multiple disciplines. We look forward to welcoming community members of all ages to a space that invites self-expression and cultivates a sense of belonging.”

Circle Mall’s visitors can also enjoy the vast rooftop offering including HUNA Aquatics, a world-class swimming academy and the region’s first mall rooftop pool as well as McCafferty's, an Irish concept renowned for its lively ambiance, great craic and authentic F&B menu.
