Dubai-based property developer Nakheel has commenced construction works of its rooftop infinity swimming pool at The Palm Tower, its 52-story, luxury hotel and residential complex at the heart of Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, Invest-Gate reports.
“Perched 210 meters above ground and covering 775 square meters, the infinity pool – one of the highest in the world – borders all four sides of the building, boasting unrivaled, panoramic views across Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf, and the Dubai skyline,” according to the company’s statement on January 8.
Located on the 50th floor of The Palm Tower, the infinity pool is set to hold 930,000 liters of water. Besides, a podium housing, a 51st-level specialty restaurant, and a 52nd-story public viewing deck will be situated above the pool – 240 meters high.
In its statement, Nakheel pointed out that construction of the rooftop dining viewing deck complex will start soon.
Meanwhile, nearly 850 construction workers are operating on-site at The Palm Tower, swelling to “more than 1,500 when internal fit-out gets in full swing in the next few weeks. Fit out of the St. Regis – due to open later this year – has already begun,” according to the statement.
The Palm Tower encompasses a 289-room St. Regis hotel, 432 luxury residences, as well as a wide range of dining and leisure facilities. The hotel occupies the first 18 floors, with fully-furnished studios and one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments on the upper floors.
