Nakheel chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah, on Thursday opened the AED1.2bn shopping, dining and entertainment destination
Nakheel Mall, the new shopping, dining and entertainment destination at the heart of Palm Jumeirah, was officially opened on Thursday.
Nakheel chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah, opened the AED1.2 billion centrepiece of The Palm, which has its own Palm Monorail station, with free monorail trips to the mall until the end of February 2020.
Lootah said: “We are proud to add Nakheel Mall to our diverse portfolio of retail, leisure and hospitality projects. This stunning new destination combines first class retail facilities with unique attractions at our flagship master development, Palm Jumeirah, which continues to be one of the world’s most sought-after places to live and visit.
“Nakheel Mall has been part of The Palm’s master plan since day one. Today’s mall opening is another key milestone which brings us ever closer to realising the vision for this world-famous island.”
The mall has five levels of shops, restaurants and attractions, including a 15-screen Vox Cinemas complex, Trampo Extreme, Fabyland, Waitrose supermarket, Depachika Food Hall, H&M and Fitness First.
Nakheel Mall is also the access point for The View at The Palm, a public observatory perched on the top of the neighbouring Palm Tower, 230 metres above the island, which will open in 2020.
Nakheel Mall operational hours are 10am to 10pm on week days and 10am to midnight on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.For all the latest retail news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
