Nakheel inks deal for new Dh 150mn waterfront attraction

Nakheel, the Dubai-based master developer has signed deal for The Boardwalk, a new Dh.150mn waterfront attraction, which will run along the 11km stretch of Palm Jumeirah Crescent.

The developer has appointed Overseas AST Company to build The Boardwalk, which is one of the new destination projects on-going at Palm Jumeirah.

Work on the project would commence by the month-end and will be ready by mid-2016.

The Boardwalk will transform the 11km protective breakwater of Palm Jumeirah into a destination for shopping, walking, and dining. This includes an East and West Pier, each stretching 100m out to sea, featuring glass-encased cafes and restaurants with views of Arabian Gulf, The Palm and the Dubai skyline.

Accessible from 14 points along the existing sidewalk, The Boardwalk will be created by building over the rocks of the island’s breakwater. It will be six meters wide, double the width of existing crescent path, and will house 30 kiosks, with refreshments and souvenirs, all through its length.

Currently, the Palm Jumeirah is home to several world-famous resorts including Atlantis The Palm, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Kempinski, Anantara, One & Only, Waldorf, Sofitel, Rixos, Fairmont and the Nakheel’s own Palm Tower.
