Nakheel’s new waterside residential and leisure project for Palm Jumeirah, Palm Views East and West, went on sale from Sunday. Palm Views is a collection of 192 “pied-à-terre” — or “foot on the ground” — style contemporary units and retail, dining and fitness facilities, all offering panoramic views of Palm Jumeirah and the Dubai skyline. The project, located at Palm Jumeirah’s East and West Marinas and a few minutes’ walk from the recently-announced Palm Mall, is spread over two buildings, each containing 96 residential units, a high-end fitness club, a selection of eateries and shops and ground-level parking. Construction will begin by the end of 2012, with completion due by the first quarter of 2014. Palm Views, on sale for Dh1 million, cover 500sqft, including a balcony, and come with a fully-equipped kitchen. Announcing the project at a Press conference, Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “Palm Views brings yet more living and leisure options to Palm Jumeirah, and gives more people the chance to experience life at this world-famous location. Palm Views will appeal to young, vibrant individuals and couples who want a prestigious address at a price they can afford. We are proud to add this exciting new concept to the ever-growing range of homes, hotels, retail and leisure projects that, together, make Palm Jumeirah one of the most sought-after locations in the world.” Palm Views is designed to maximise energy-efficiency and cost-effectiveness, with individual air conditioning systems that residents pay for directly as part of their utility bills, meaning lower monthly running costs. Membership of the fitness clubs at Palm Views will be open to residents and non-residents for a nominal fee.
