Restaurants and shops at The Pointe on Palm Jumeirah in Dubai have been served an eviction notice by Nakheel, the developer, and given a 12-month notice to vacate and relocate based on their individual circumstances, according to a statement made on Tuesday. 

The notice is compliant with the laws, rules, and regulations of the Dubai Land Department and is part of the future redevelopment of The Pointe. 

“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 spokesperson said.

Nakheel has assured tenants that it will work closely with them to ensure a smooth transition. Although the landmark fountain opened in 2020, The Pointe closed on May 15, 2023.

Nakheel said: “The tenants will have a period of 12 months to vacate and relocate, as per their individual circumstances. (We are) working closely with our valued tenants throughout this process.”
