Nakheel Malls has announced that construction work on The Pointe, its new 1.4 million sqft – AED800 million – dining and entertainment destination on Palm Jumeirah is nearing completion. The new attraction will open towards the end of 2018.

Located at the tip of Palm Jumeirah across the bay from Atlantis The Palm, The Pointe features unique concepts from around the globe with over 100 shopping and dining outlets on offer. Its centrepiece will be a spectacular fountain which will captivate visitors with dazzling shows viewed from The Pointe’s full range of waterfront dining spots.

The Pointe will also be home to a 1.5km promenade – a destination in itself for residents and tourists looking to unwind at one of Dubai’s most iconic locations.

“We are moving ever closer to opening one of the most eagerly-awaited destinations in Dubai. The Pointe will be an iconic, must-see attraction offering remarkable lifestyle experiences for residents and tourists. Inspired by the heritage and culture of the Emirates, it will be a stunning, vibrant and unique addition to Dubai’s dining, retail and entertainment scene,” says Ali Rashid Lootah, chairman of Nakheel.

The Pointe will also have a cinema, a children’s play area, a supermarket, gyms, beauty salons and unique gifting concepts, as well as a car park for 2,000 vehicles.
