Waitrose and Vox Cinemas will be among the tenants, while talks are under way to secure an anchor department store.

Leasing is also under way on the Golden Mile strip where the Spinney’s supermarket group is fitting out its store. Other tenants will include Fitness First, and Shakespeare and Co.

Last week Nakheel reported first quarter profits had more than doubled to Dh1.35 billion, helped by its fast expanding retail portfolio.

There's quite a bit more activity in the Golden Mile retail area now from what I can see!

I don't think it would take too long to fit out the shops etc! We may get some openings before the end of the year!

Nakheel aims to add more than 11,000 hotel and hotel apartment rooms to The Palm Jumeirah by the end of the decade.

It expects the total number of hotel and hotel apartment rooms to reach 15,000 by 2020, said Omar Khoory, the director of retail at Nakheel.

The Palm currently has about 3,500 hotel rooms across eight resorts.

Six more are under construction, including a W Hotel and a The Langham Hotel. A Dukes London and a Byblos are also planned. “We expect to have 32 hotels on The Palm, and everything is being done with an eye on 2020, but it depends on the individual developers,” said Mr Khoory.

With the rise in the number of hotels, Nakheel is also looking to improve the entertainment and dining options on the island.

The 1.2-kilometre Pointe walkway will be The Palm’s second tourist destination after the Atlantis hotel, which it will overlook. The Pointe is expected to open in the first quarter of next year.

The dining and entertainment destination, which will stage fountain shows, is expected to attract between 40,000 and 50,000 visitors a day, with almost 60 per cent of them tourists, Mr Khoory said. The Pointe is already two-thirds leased with 96 outlets signed up, including Reem Al Bawadi, Leopold’s of London and Olive Garden, besides jewellery and fashion stores.

When complete, it will have 148 outlets and parking spaces for 1,500 cars. The construction of the Dh800 million promenade is about 30 per cent complete.

The retail units, with an average size of 10,000 square feet, will be handed over starting in September.

Nakheel’s hospitality division is also looking to open its own restaurant at the complex.

“The Dubai market is very well provided in terms of large super regional and regional malls, and this has led developers to switch attention to two separate niche markets over the past couple of years – namely food and beverage centres [such as The Pointe] aimed at the tourist sector and convenience centres targeting the growing population in new master planned communities,” said Craig Plumb, the regional head of research at the consultancy JLL.

Public transport links and boat shuttles from the resorts to The Pointe will connect the area to the rest of The Palm.

Nakheel also gave an update on its other major retail project on The Palm, saying that it expects the Nakheel Mall to draw 70,000 people a day when it opens in 2017.

Nakheel also said that it expects the Golden Mile retail development, which it took over the ownership of in November, to open in August. It will have a Spinneys supermarket as its anchor.

“Whatever contracts [the tenants] had with the previous owner, we will be honouring,” Mr Khoory said.

Across Dubai, retail rents are expected to stabilise at current levels over the next couple of years due to the increased supply and a slowdown in tourism growth, according to JLL.

“While base rents are likely to remain relatively stable, the main opportunity for developers to achieve higher revenues will be through turnover related rental increases,” Mr Plumb said.

Dubai government-owned developer Nakheel has announced 100 restaurants and shops will open at its new complex, The Pointe, on The Palm Jumeirah.
The $218 million, 1.4m square foot waterfront retail, dining and entertainment complex would feature some well-known brands such as Reem Al Bawadi, Russo's Italian Kitchen, Leopold's of London, Baker & Spice, Red Lobster, Longhorn Steakhouse and Olive Garden.
Retail outlets will include Hamac, Swatch, PureGold, Maybury boutique grocer, Marina Pharmacy and Tips & Toes nail salon, Nakheel said.
The developer also will launch its own food and beverage outlet, it said.

So no Waitrose? They were touted as being an anchor tenant in GM Retail...looks like Spinneys have taken their place.

Yeah no waitrose!

It doesn't make any difference to me. Especially when we use to have all this time a small and ridiculous "all day" minimarkets for thousands of residents and tourists on the palm!

Does anyone know what they're constructing between the roads/flyover bridges as you drive onto PJ, I was doing the loop underneath from Golden Mile to Shoreline earlier and noticed building hoardings, but wasn't able to read what was written on the signboard?

So Seagulls posted this about 10 weeks ago. I had a good walk round the place today, security guards were all asleep, even went inside in a couple of spots where doors had been left open. Definitely some signs of fitout taking place, a few temporary signs scattered about for some of the stores, I saw Spinneys, Beyond the Beach, Liali Jewellery, cuppla cafes, a barbers. Quite a lot of the units at the top end furthest from the shore have "vacant" signs, but even in those there is some fitout starting. No visible signs of the Fitness First. Still nothing worth taking pics of.

So certainly looks positive, it's definitely happening, but progressing very slowly. From what I could see I can't imagine much of it being open for Christmas. Let's see.
