Nakheel to award contract for Pointe by Q1 2014
Project will feature over 200 retail opportunities
Nakheel is to award the construction contract for The Pointe, its 136,000m2 retail and entertainment complex at Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, within the first quarter of 2014.
Earlier this year, Nakheel awarded a contract for ground improvement work at the site. The ground preparation work is now complete, and included vibro-compaction, a topographic survey and factual site investigation work.
The Pointe will be located at the tip of The Palm, opposite Atlantis. Leasing will start next month with the project featuring over 200 retail opportunities, a diverse range of shopping, dining and entertainment facilities, including a spectacular fountain display.
In addition to convenient road access and ample parking, The Pointe will also be accessible via the Palm monorail system which will soon be connected to the mainland tram system, while water taxis will shuttle visitors across the bay from nearby hotels directly to the mall’s marina.
The Pointe is one of several new Nakheel developments underway at Palm Jumeirah. Others include Nakheel Mall, The Boardwalk and Palm West Beach.
