Invites out for Boardwalk project

Property developer Nakheel has invited bids for the design and construction of its planned 11km Boardwalk project on Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.
The Boardwalk, unveiled at Cityscape 2013, will transform Palm Jumeirah’s protective crescent into a destination for walking, shopping and dining, and create a new focus for the island.
Nakheel said in January that it had hired Halcrow as the design consultant for the 11km long pedestrian pathway.

It will feature two 100-metre piers, stretching into the waters of the Gulf and offering extensive views of the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai’s skyline.

The scope of tender will include the designing and building of an elevated boardwalk and includes associated modification works to the existing breakwater; and two piled deck piers including restaurant buildings.

The Boardwalk will include an East and West Pier – each stretching 100 metres out to sea – offering extensive views and featuring a range of glass-encased cafes and restaurants.
The deadline for the completed bids is May 28, Nakheel said.
