Property developer Nakheel’s public observation deck, towering 240 metres above the Palm Jumeirah, is almost complete.
The View at The Palm, an observatory offering uninterrupted views of the world-famous island, Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline, will reveal the story behind the crescent-shaped project which put the emirate on the global map.
The project, for which a fit-out contract was signed last month, is perched on the 52nd floor of The Palm Tower at the heart of the island. The observation deck includes a VIP lounge and areas for private events.
The Palm Tower will be home to a St. Regis hotel and luxury residences, with a rooftop infinity pool and restaurant underneath the viewing deck. The tower is directly connected to Nakheel Mall, which is due to open this year.
“The View at The Palm will combine awe-inspiring, breath-taking views with an interactive, educational experience about the creation of the iconic Palm Jumeirah. This stunning new attraction – the only location in Dubai offering this unique experience – will be a magnet for residents and tourists,” says Omar Khoory, managing director of Nakheel Malls.
Visitors to The View will start their journey at the roof plaza of Nakheel Mall, where they’ll find an interactive museum and gallery dedicated to the creation of Palm Jumeirah. From there, an elevator, complete with a floor-to-ceiling digital sea, sand and sky experience, will take them on the three-minute ascent to the observatory.
Once visitors have come back down to earth, they can refuel at The View café or browse the gift shop at the Nakheel Mall roof plaza.
