Dubai is getting a Sky High Observation Deck called The View

Fancy seeing Dubai from a different point of view? What about 240 metres high from a panoramic viewing deck? That’s what you’ll get at The View at The Palm, a new landmark found 52 storeys high on the Palm Jumeirah.

The View at The Palm is a public observation deck that will tower 240 metres above the city, and will open on the top level of The Palm Tower.

Accessible from the soon to open Nakheel Mall, the observatory will offer spectacular views of The Palm, the Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline. Although no opening date has yet been given, master developer Nakheel confirmed it is nearing completion, in an official statement.

The observation deck will be open for both day and night visits, and also include a VIP lounge and areas for private events.

Visitors to The View will first visit an interactive museum and gallery on the rooftop plaza of Nakheel Mall, that explores the creation of Palm Jumeirah. From there, an elevator, complete with a floor-to-ceiling digital sea, sand and sky experience, will take them on the three minute ascent to the observatory at the top of The Palm Tower.

The Palm Tower is directly connected to Nakheel Mall, set to open with over 350 shops this winter. As well as The View observation deck, the 52 storey skyscraper will feature a rooftop infinity pool one floor below, a St Regis hotel and luxury residences.
