Never heard anything like it in Jumeirah... One big strike sounded like a bomb and a few cars on the street went off because of it

Nakheel Receives Six Construction Bids For New Mall On Palm Jumeirah



Dubai developer Nakheel announced that it has received six proposals for the construction of Nakheel Mall, its Dhs2.5 billion, 418,000 square metre retail, dining and entertainment complex on Palm Jumeirah.

Bids started at Dhs1.185 billion, the company said in a statement.

The construction contract is expected to be awarded within three months, it added.

Nakheel Mall, which is slated for completion in 2016, will be built at the northern end of the island’s trunk.

The complex will include 200 shops, 4,000 parking bays, two anchor department stores, a nine-screen cinema and six medical clinics. There will also be a roof plaza with 12 fine dining restaurants and other cafes and eateries.

Nakheel, which recently reported a 27 per cent rise in 2013 net profit to reach Dhs2.57 billion, has been scaling up operations significantly this year.

Last week, the developer announced that it had awarded three new contracts – together worth over Dhs41 million ($11.1 million) – for its Al Furjan and Warsan Village master communities.

Earlier this month, Nakheel also announced that it had awarded a Dhs375 million contract to Gulf Technical Construction Company– a subsidiary of Drake & Scull – to build The Pointe mall at Palm Jumeirah.

The Pointe, a 136,000 square metre retail and entertainment complex, is set to come up at the tip of Palm Jumeirah, opposite Atlantis, and is due for completion in 2016.

Nakheel’s chairman Ali Rashid Lootah also recently revealed plans to launch new projects worth between Dhs6 to Dhs8 billion in 2014.

I have a feeling that they'll build a second tower on the opposite side as it will give balance and obviously generate a lot of income, this won't be disclosed at this stage as it will make it harder to sell the apartments that currently have Marina view. See the below link to image from Nakheel website, the design looks unbalanced with the tower positioned to one side.

I also believe that they'll reclaim more land and develop another Palma Residence on the opposite side of the Trunk, watch this space!!

Are we talking about the arrows in the merging lanes forcing drivers to hit the barriers rather than merge with the main traffic flow?

Please scroll down and see the second page as it clearly depicts a single off-centre tower, apologies but I'm simply going off the Nakheel,website;

Quote from the Nakheel website regarding Palma Residence.

The private, community beach is open to all Townhouse residences and provides striking views of Dubai and the waters of the Arabian Gulf.
I guess this means that the whole beach around the peninsula will be closed off to Shoreline residents. That might be difficult to police.
Though I suppose it also means that Palma Residence people will be barred from the shoreline beaches.
