Master developer Nakheel has started work on the rooftop infinity swimming pool at The Palm Tower, its 52-storey, luxury hotel and residential complex at the heart of Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.
Perched 210 metres above ground and covering 775 square metres, the infinity pool – one of the highest in the world – borders all four sides of the building.
The pool – which will hold 930,000 litres of water – is on the 50th floor of The Palm Tower. Above the pool will be a podium housing a 51st level speciality restaurant and a 52nd storey public viewing deck, 240 metres high. Construction of the rooftop dining viewing deck complex will begin soon.
Located at the heart of Palm Jumeirah, The Palm Tower comprises a 289-room St Regis hotel, 432 luxury residences and a number of dining and leisure facilities. The hotel occupies the first 18 floors, with fully-furnished studios and one, two and three bedroom apartments on the upper floors.
Fit out of the St Regis – due to open later this year – has already begun, Nakheel said.
The Palm Tower is directly connected to the under-construction Nakheel Mall which is due for completion this year.
