Only if that stands for "Camera's Good, Innit?" Took this pic myself on the Seawings seaplane flight down the coast.

Also take a look at it on Google Earth. I measured that pool, it's about 130m long

So people, to summarize: There are TWO signature islands on both sides of the trunk. The one on the right (post 78) is a private residence for one of the Maktooms. The one on the left (post 79) is still barren and it will possibly be a hotel complex with possible residential units too.

Looks like some infrastructure work happening on the other Logo Island. I read somewhere that they wanted to build a cruise ship terminal here, but I dismissed that as nonsense. Maybe not?



The red boat has been present in that area for the last 6 months on and off.

I'm visiting Dubai like twice a year and every time, since 2010 I continually see this ship navigating in area between the trunk, Logo Island - West (Dubawi Island) and first frond... my guess - its kind of mechanical vessel, that is used when deepening the sea near the beaches, or reclaiming the new beaches itself, like the one near Fairmont Hotel...

Yeah, that logo island is gorgeous. How does fresh water get to this island and other utilities, underground? I love the greenery of the island, the rest of Palm Jumeirah could use some more green.

I cannot believe this is still paused ... Hotels are having peak activity and i'm sure they will have no problem whatsoever filling up a 5 star hotel on an island ...

people don't forget this is an island. construction logistics will be utterly painful, not to mention logistics during operation.

who knows if there is water and electricity connected to the main land grid.
