Palm Jumeirah Boardwalk development moves a step closer

Nakheel's 11km Boardwalk at Dubai's Palm Jumeirah, a new waterfront attraction with a project value of AED150mln, has moved a step closer with the award of a contract to Overseas AST Company LLC.

The Boardwalk, which is set to transform Palm Jumeirah’s 11km protective crescent into a vibrant destination for walking, shopping and dining, includes an East and West Pier, each stretching 100 metres out to sea, featuring glass-encased cafes and restaurants with extensive views of the Arabian Gulf, Palm Jumeirah and the Dubai skyline.  

A Nakheel spokesman said: "The Boardwalk at Palm Jumeirah, one of several new projects underway on the island, will be a big draw for Palm residents, the wider community of Dubai and the millions of tourists who visit Dubai each year."  

Palm Jumeirah is currently home to a growing number of world-famous resorts including Atlantis The Palm, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Anantara, Kempinski, One & Only, Rixos, Sofitel, Waldorf Astoria and The Fairmont, with more on the way, including Nakheel’s own hotel and residential complex, The Palm Tower.
