Nakheel’s Promenade to make Trunk Pedestrian Friendly

by Orwell HuxleyOctober 4, 2015

Nakheel will transform the entire trunk of Palm Jumeirah into a walkable beach, park, retail and café complex under a new project announced at Dubai’s Cityscape Global exhibition on Tuesday.

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 Ittihad Park, Palm West Beach and retail, dining and entertainment facilities on The Palm.

Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “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.

“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, Nakheel will connect all elements of the Palm Jumeirah trunk with one another. Residents of the 20 Shoreline Apartments buildings and 10 Golden Mile buildings will be able to walk between Al Ittihad Park, Palm West Beach, the Golden Mile Galleria retail complex and the upcoming Nakheel Mall, currently under construction at the heart of the island.

Nakheel said a number of new cafes will line the Shoreline buildings, complementing existing and future retail, dining and entertainment facilities at Golden Mile Galleria and Nakheel Mall.

The Palm Promenade project 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.
