It’s official…

Following last week’s news of the closure of The Palm Fountains, we have now received confirmation that Dubai’s The Pointe on Palm Jumeirah, as a whole, will soon be undergoing redevelopment.

What’s On reached out to Nakheel regarding the closure rumours and a spokesperson stated, ‘The tenants of The Pointe have been served notice, which is fully compliant with the Dubai Land Department laws, rules and regulations, as part of the future redevelopment of The Pointe.’

The statement added that tenants will have 12 months to vacate and relocate as per their circumstances. Nakheel added that it is working with its tenants throughout the process. 

The Nakheel spokesperson then stated, ‘As a part of this redevelopment, The Fountain at The Pointe closed on May 15. Nakheel remains committed to ensuring the smoothest transition possible for its tenants during this time.’

Currently, no information has been shared about what will occupy the land currently held by The Pointe  — whether Nakheel will continue to operate commercial projects there, or perhaps shift to residential operations, but we are keeping our ears open for any official announcement. Stay tuned to for all the latest.

Last week, an Instagram post on The Pointe’s official account stated that the Palm Fountain will be closing on Monday, May 15. The huge fountain show was launched back on October 22, 2020, and broke a Guinness World Record to become the World’s Largest Fountain – even bigger than The Dubai Mall.

The Pointe is home to a number of popular restaurants including Brunch and Cake, CMP Bar and Grill, Il Passagio, Argentina Grill, Saya Cafe, Yoy and more.

If you want to visit your favourite restaurant(s) at The Pointe before they close their doors, use the Palm Monorail to avoid the traffic and parking stress. The Palm Monorail zips from the tail end of the Palm at Gateway Station up to Aquaventure at Atlantis, The Palm. It makes stops at Al Ittihad Park, Nakheel Mall and The Pointe. Travellers can use their nol cards to make payments.
