I just got an email talking about townhouses coming up between buildings 6 and 7 of the Shoreline apartments (I assume in the same area where they were going to dock the QE2). Anybody else heard about these?

Quote:
Developer is expanding its retail portfolio in a big way this year

Dubai: Nakheel is looking to draw more tourists and new residents to the Palm Jumeirah with the addition of a new shopping mall.

Located at the tip of the Palm Jumeirah, across the bay from Atlantis Hotel, ‘The Pointe' will focus on its food and beverage and leisure offering. The 136,000 square metre mall will also feature computer-controlled fountains, a public walk, monorail access and boat rides between The Pointe and Atlantis Hotel.

"It will be a real tourist destination not only for The Palm residents but also for visitors. The population on the Palm Jumeirah is around 30,000 and we expect that to grow with all these new amenities. There will be new ideas which will enhance the Palm Jumeirah. These will be announced in the second half of this year," Ali Rashid Lootah, chairman of Nakheel, said.

The original plan has been scraped so QE2 is NOT being placed at PJ anymore.

Palm Jumeirah to host more hotels

Quote:
Rebecca Bundhun | Jan 16, 2012


The Palm is still a far cry from the vision of its original master plan for 30 five-star hotels with 14,000 rooms. Jumana El Heloueh / Reuters

Hundreds of new hotel rooms are to open on the Palm Jumeirah after many projects were mothballed in the financial crisis.

A Rixos luxury hotel is expected to open on the Palm this month, and Al Habtoor has restarted work on its Dh1 billion (US$272 million) hotel on the island, which will be managed under Hilton's Waldorf Astoria brand. The long-delayed Fairmont hotel and Royal Amwaj resort are also scheduled to open this year.

I agree. Much needed for PJ. Not too sure about those fountains though, I personally don't like the idea of obscuring any views of/in the direction of Atlantis/the Cresent. Depends on how often and when they are operating I suppose..

Cruise tours of Palm Jumeirah start on Tuesday

Quote:
By Parag Deulgaonkar | Published Monday, January 16, 2012





From Tuesday, visitors and residents can get up-close glimpses of the various developments on The Palm Jumeirah project by booking a cruise offered by Nakheel.

The cruise will soon be extended to The World islands as well.

“Cruise with Nakheel,” the new commercial initiative, will initially have four boats, ranging from 32 feet to 80 feet long. The cruise will take tourists across developments such as Rixos, The Royal Amwaj, Atlantis, Subsea tunnel, Zabeel Saray, Tiara Residence, etc on the man-made island.

“The Palm is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Dubai. Our cruise will allow visitors to see the Palm from the inner waters of the island,” Saeed Harib, Managing Director, Nakheel Leisure, said on Monday.

Till now, only villa owners on The Palm were allowed to navigate their boats through the inner waterway.

“No one else will be allowed to operate any cruise within the Palm Jumeirah,” Harib added.

The tour will cost Dh1,000 for a small boat (38 feet), Dh1,500 for a medium-sized boat (52 feet) and Dh3,000 to Dh5,000 for the 80-feet double-decker house boat. The cruise will range between an hour and three hours.

“We initially expect two to three trips per day. Right now, one can book a full boat, but we are also looking at starting tours where individuals can come onboard and even a night cruise. We are working on that,” he said.

Although the company will be utilising four of its existing boats for the cruise service, it has ordered a 80-feet plus boat for the new
service.

Zhang Kai, General Manager, Golden Phoenix Tourism, believes that the cruise facility will be a good option for tourists.

“We will provide the tourists details of this new offering in Dubai. Considering the price, it is a good option,” he added.

Revealed: inside the launch of Nakheel’s Palm cruise tours


Nakheel launched its cruise ship service to ferry tourists around the Palm Jumeirah on Jan 15


The state-backed developer said it plans to offer further cruise lines and diving packages in the future


The ‘Cruise with Nakheel’ service will offer trips for groups of up to 12, 15 and 30 people


Prices for the service start from AED1,000 per boat, depending on the size of the vessel


The service will operate daily from 9-5pm and lasts one hour


Future packages are expected to include tours of the World islands, night cruises and diving packages, said Nakheel


Tourists on the cruise can choose from one of three boats including an 80-ft double-decker Houseboat


Nakheel has hinted it may look to reposition the World islands as a tourist attraction through renting out the
islands for private events and offering cruises around the project



The cruise service will use boats already owned by the company meaning the tourist package will require minimal
start-up costs, said Nakheel



Tourists will be able to see a whole host of Palm Jumeirah attractions such as The Atlantis Hotel during the cruise

The Houseboat can accommodate up to 30 people


Saeed Harib, the CEO of Nakheel’s leisure arm


Nakheel's cruises will enable visitors to view the villas along the frond of the Palm Jumeirah


Saeed Harib, the CEO of Nakheel Marine and Leisure


The cruise service is already being marketed across Dubai’s luxury hotels


Other smaller boats include a 38-ft or 52-ft motor boat


The service will be available for tourists from Jan 16, said Nakheel


'Cruise with Nakheel' was launched days after the firm unveiled details of a retail and residential project on
Palm Jumeirah



The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah will be its first real estate project since the collapse of Dubai’s property market
in late-2008



Nakheel's Palm Jumeirah and World projects became synonymous with Dubai's five-year real estate boom


The new cruise service will provide "good revenues" for the developer, said Saeed Harib


Future cruises may include areas around the Lagoon in front of the Mina Seyahi and Dubai Marina, said Nakheel


Nakheel expects to operate between two and three trips a day

Whose beach is it anyway?

Premium property owners cry foul after exclusive beach/pool facilities on The Palm are thrown open to public for just Dh50 a day

By Anjana Kumar, Staff reporter | Published: 00:00 January 19, 2012

DUBAI: Premium beach and pool facilities on The Palm Jumeirah have been thrown open to the public for as little as Dh50 a day, angering Shoreline Apartments owners who claim exclusive right over these areas.

Residents said charges for using clubhouse facilities that include beach access, swimming pool and kids' play areas have been kept at Dh50.

The sales and purchase agreements (SPAs) signed by Shoreline owners with Nakheel also grants them this exclusive right, they said.

An SPA seen by XPRESS states: "The clubhouse includes the use of gym, swimming pools and the clubhouse operators also provide gym attendants, pool and clubhouse maintenance and cleaning staff and lifeguards for the swimming pools and beach that are exclusive to the Shoreline Apartments residents."

A receipt signed by a clubhouse staff gave access to ‘two guests' into the clubhouse for a charge of just Dh100. The clubhouse is managed by Nakheel Leisure. Apart from names of the guests, no other details such as ID card numbers or passport details were put on the receipt. All Shoreline owners and tenants are required to produce title deeds or tenancy contracts to be able to get access cards for clubhouse facilities.

Nakheel’s outstanding service fees from unit owners of the Shoreline Apartments on Palm Jumeirah have fallen by 36 per cent to Dh46 million on January 19, 2012, as compared to Dh72 million in November 2011 when it barred owners/tenants from using the common facilities, according to a statement sent to Emirates 24l7.

Dubai's Shoreline residents to get new beach club operator

Quote:
Shoreline Apartment owners on The Palm Jumeirah to replace Nakheel as beach club operator following Rera's decision to give residents full control of common areas

By Anjana Kumar, Staff Reporter | Published: 00:00 February 9, 2012


Shoreline Interim Owners Associations are now legally empowered to take charge of common areas from Nakheel. The move is likely to have a big impact on Dubai’s real
estate sector. Shoreline residents have been locked in a battle with Nakheel ever since it blocked access to the beach club over unpaid building service charges and beach
club fees. Image Credit: © XPRESS / Oliver Clarke


DUBAI: In a move that can have far-reaching implications for Dubai's real estate sector, residents of Shoreline Apartments on The Palm Jumeirah have decided to replace Nakheel as their beach club operator and invite tenders for the management of beach club facilities.

A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the Interim Owners' Association (IOA) on February 2, XPRESS can reveal.
