Nakheel Mall, the new shopping, dining and entertainment destination at the heart of Palm Jumeirah, was officially opened by Nakheel Chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah on November 28, 2019, with a huge range of live events and promotions in store for the UAE National Day weekend and beyond.
The AED1.2 billion destination, the new centerpiece of The Palm, provides on-the-doorstep convenience for the island’s 78,000 residents, a new destination for the wider Dubai community, and a stunning new attraction for the millions of tourists who visit the UAE each year.
The mall has five retail levels with more than 300 shops, restaurants, entertainment outlets, and services, including MODO department store, Depachika Food Hall, a 14- screen Vox Cinemas complex, Waitrose supermarket, H&M, Trampo Extreme, Fabyland, Dubai London Clinic and Fitness First.
Nakheel Mall is easily accessible by rail, road or on foot: its Palm Monorail station will be operational on opening day, and there are direct road links to 4,000 parking spaces as well as pedestrian access via Al Ittihad Park and Marina Residences.
Nakheel Mall is also the access point for The View at The Palm, a public observatory perched on the top of The Palm Tower, 230 meters above the island. The View will open in 2020.
Nakheel Chairman, Ali Rashid 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 that brings us ever closer to realizing the vision for this world-famous island.”
Omar Khoory, Managing Director, Nakheel Malls, said: “We are delighted to add Nakheel Mall to our diverse collection of retail and entertainment destinations across Dubai. Nakheel Mall combines first-class retail facilities with unique attractions at one of the world’s most famous landmarks, Palm Jumeirah.”
“We look forward to celebrating the arrival of this vibrant new destination as Dubai’s busiest time of year gets underway, with the National Day weekend, Festive Season, New Year and Dubai Shopping Festival among the many seasonal events over the next few months.”
