Nakheel is set to transform the entire trunk of Palm Jumeirah into a walkable beach, park, retail and café complex under a new project announced at Cityscape Global on Tuesday, 7 September, 2015.
The Palm Promenade will stretch 1.5km along the island’s trunk, with new walkways and road crossings connecting the area’s 30 apartment buildings with Al lttihad Park, Palm West Beach and other retail, dining and entertainment facilities.
“The Palm Promenade is all about connectivity, walkability, and accessibility, and yet another example of our continued delivery of new, innovative projects at the world-famous Palm Jumeirah”, Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said.
“This exciting new pedestrian-friendly facility is set to dramatically enhance the lives of thousands of people who live along Palm Jumeirah’s trunk. The project promotes a healthy lifestyle and social, environmental and economic sustainability by encouraging people to walk, cycle, meet and socialise, and will boost business in the area with easier access to the ever-expanding range of retail facilities there.”
Under the plans for the project, all elements of the Palm Jumeirah trunk will be connected with one another.
The Palm promenade also includes upgrades to the design of Palm West Beach, Nakheel’s new park, dining and beach club facility for the island. New features include two children’s fountains, retail facilities and parking for 700 vehicles.
The Palm Promenade joins several other new Nakheel projects, including Nakheel Mall, The Palm Tower, The Palm Gateway and The Pointe, coming to Palm Jumeirah.
