Residents and visitors in Dubai will get to enjoy another dancing fountain and this time, it will be at the Palm Jumeirah Islands.
The soon-to-be attraction will be the centrepoint of The Pointe, a retail and entertainment destination that is home to Nakheel’s seafront dining and shopping venues.
The UAE-based developer announced on Sunday that it has just signed a Dh66 million deal to deliver and operate the choreographed water spectacle that is envisioned to cover a 12,000 square-metre area of water at the tip of the Palm, across the bay from Atlantis hotel.
“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,” Nakheel chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah said.
Choreographed fountains are a major draw to tourists.
Emaar’s Dubai Fountain at Downtown Burj Khalifa, dubbed as the tallest performing fountain in the world, attracts thousands of visitors every day.
In an announcement, Nakheel said it is commissioning Chinese fountain specialists, Beijing Water Design, to set up and manage a similar attraction at The Palm.
