Beijing Water Design to deliver and operate the 12,000sqm area of water
Nakheel has revealed that it has awarded a contract worth $18 million for a spectacular, choreographed fountain at The Pointe to one of China’s largest fountain specialists, Beijing Water Design.
The water display will be a major attraction at the new $218 million waterfront dining and entertainment destination on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.
Beijing Water Design will deliver and operate the fountain, which will cover a 12,000sqm area of water at the tip of the island, across the bay from Atlantis The Palm, said Nakheel
“Palm Jumeirah, our flagship project, is already one of the most popular, sought-after destinations for Dubai’s residents and tourists. The Pointe, our latest addition to this ever-evolving island, is an iconic, must-see attraction that adds a new dimension to the city’s dining, retail and entertainment scene,” said Nakheel’s chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah, at the signing ceremony. “Today’s signing is a major milestone for The Pointe, as it means work on its centrepiece – the fountain – is now underway, and we are one step closer to delivering this eagerly-anticipated destination.”
Operated by Nakheel Malls, The Pointe features nearly 70 restaurants, shops and attractions, with F&B making up some 70% of the concepts on offer, says Nakheel: “There is also a cinema, children’s play area, supermarket, gyms and beauty salons. Located 5km out to sea, The Pointe enjoys cool sea breezes and stunning views. Its 1.5km promenade is a destination in itself for residents and tourists to unwind at one of Dubai’s most iconic locations, or snap the perfect holiday pictures against a stunning backdrop. The Pointe has a car park for 1,600 vehicles, and will have its own Palm Monorail station. There are also plans for boat access from Palm Jumeirah’s hotels and resorts.”
