Nakheel’s mall project on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah is nearing delivery, with the UAE-headquartered developer announcing that construction works are 85% complete.
In a statement, the company said that a 600t tower crane has recently been removed from the project site, marking a “significant milestone” in the progress of the $326.7m (AED1.2bn) Nakheel Mall development.
Nakheel further revealed that all ceiling and under- and above-ground floor works have been completed, with fit out now being implemented on major outlets of the mall, including the 5,574m2, 15-theatre Vox cinema complex.
Interior works like granite and glass fixing are “well on track”, the master developer noted, adding that the project’s 25m-high crystal dome, which will “straddle the mall’s Monorail station”, is also taking shape.
Once completed, Nakheel Mall will comprise five floors and three underground parking levels, and will host 350 shops, restaurants, and leisure attractions.
Features of the project will include two waterfalls plunging 65ft into the mall, a fine dining roof plaza, and access to the 240m ascent to the public viewing deck at Nakheel’s The Palm Tower, a 52-storey hotel and residential property that is also under construction.
