Nakheel Mall almost 50 percent complete
Construction of the AED 1.2bn Nakheel Mall on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah is approaching 50 percent completion, the developer has said.
The mall’s three underground parking levels, with 4,000 spaces, are nearly complete, with the overall superstructure due to be finished in Q3 this year.
Work is also on track on the mall’s VIP entrance and rooftop features, which include two fountains and two waterfalls plunging as far as 65 ft into the mall, Nakheel said.
Nakheel Mall will have five retail levels with 350 shops, restaurants and leisure attractions spread across 1.2 million sq ft of leasable space.
Alongside Nakheel Mall will be The Palm Tower – Nakheel’s new, five-star, 52-storey hotel and residential complex – for which a separate construction contract was awarded last year.
A St Regis hotel will occupy the first 18 floors, with 504 luxury residences above. Due for completion in 2018, the tower will also boast a trio of rooftop attractions, with one of the world’s highest infinity pools on the 50th floor, a 51st floor restaurant and a viewing deck, 220 metres above ground, on level 52.
