This comes a week after Nakheel signed a contract for $102 million with Gulf Technical Construction Company for the construction of The Pointe.

The project, with a fountain display as its centrepiece, is one of several new Nakheel developments underway at Palm Jumeirah, others including Nakheel Mall, The Palm Tower, The Boardwalk and Palm West Beach.
