Indebted developer Nakheel has launched a tender for the construction of its Palm Mall project - the company's 160,000 sqm shopping mall planned for Palm Jumeirah.
Nakheel appointed architectural practice RSP to design the mall under a US$6.8m contract in April.
It declined to comment on the issue of a tender for contractors, but when announcing the award to RSP in April this year, it said that work would start in 2013 and would complete in 2014.
At the time, CEO Sanjay Manchanda said: “The Palm Mall will be major addition to the ever-growing number of facilities and attractions on our flagship development, and we are proud to engage RSP to design what will undoubtedly be a big draw for Palm residents and visitors."
