Nakheel, the world-leading master developer, has announced that The View at The Palm, a stunning observation deck that showcases a 360-degree view of Palm Jumeirah, is set to open its doors to the public on April 7.
Visitors can purchase their tickets and experience the Palm Jumeirah like never-before, as well as embark on an interactive journey towards the rich history of this splendid island through multiple immersive touchpoints.
News of The View’s opening follows Nakheel’s recent announcement that The Palm Tower is now 95 per cent complete, with all components set to open by October this year.
With direct access from Nakheel Mall, level two of The Palm Tower will mark the entry point for visitors which houses a Starbucks Café, The View Exhibition, interactive aquarium tunnels and a gift shop. The View Exhibition, a tribute to the impeccable growth-journey of Palm Jumeirah, will encompass a timeline on the way in which this world-famous island was conceptualized and developed.
Visitors can also experience an immersive theatre which takes them through the ground-breaking history of the island. Towering at 240 metres over the Palm Jumeirah, Level 52 holds the observatory deck with spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf, Dubai skyline and the island itself.
Omar Khoory, Chief Assets and Hospitality Officer, Nakheel said: “20 years ago, Nakheel embarked on a journey to bring the vision of Palm Jumeirah to life and today, we celebrate its growing success story by launching The View at The Palm. As well as a world attraction, The View will uncover the evolutionary journey behind building one of the most splendid man-made islands in the world. As Nakheel continues to add innovative destinations to its ever-growing retail portfolio, we hope that these experiences will inspire wonder to visitors of all ages and backgrounds. We are delighted to welcome residents to experience Palm Jumeirah in a completely new way and we are confident that it will be memorable.”
Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), said: “The View at The Palm marks another major milestone for Dubai’s tourism industry and adds to the city’s range of diverse offerings that residents and visitors can enjoy. The opening of the observation deck under stringent precautionary measures will further enhance the safe environment that Dubai has created in line with the directive of our visionary leadership to ensure that the health and safety of people remains the top priority. The significance of the solid relationships that we have built over the years with our stakeholders and partners like Nakheel is clearly evident in the construction of this new landmark on the world renowned Palm Jumeirah, providing visitors the opportunity to enjoy unforgettable experiences in one of the world’s safest cities."
John Bricker, Principal and Creative Director, Gensler, said: “The View at The Palm is an excellent example of multidisciplinary design that culminates in a truly unique and memorable experience. Gensler closely collaborated with Nakheel on creating an immersive journey where architecture, brand, user experience, and creative technology all come into play to create an unforgettable destination that educates and entertains. We are looking forward to launching the project with Nakheel and welcoming the public to the observation deck.”
