The rumours are true. After the abrupt closure of the Palm Fountain on Monday, May 15, Nakheel has now confirmed that it’s not just the fountain but The Pointe in its entirety that will undergo redevelopment.
Restaurants and retail outlets in the shopping and dining destination have been issued eviction notices that allow them a maximum period of 12 months to vacate the premises.
Secret Dubai reached out to Nakheel for clarification and a spokesperson confirmed that “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.”
They also added that tenants have a 12-month period to vacate and relocate and that Nakheel “ is working closely with our valued tenants throughout this process.” A number of hugely popular Dubai restaurants and outlets have prime spots on The Pointe. That means we have a year, or even less, to visit restaurants such as Mura, A Capella, Brunch and Cake, etc. and say au revoir.
There’s no clarity yet if the redevelopment will give The Poine a fresh new look. Or if a completely new concept will take over the plot of land that The Pointe is currently on. We’ll keep our ears to the ground and update you the moment there’s fresh information.
