#PROJECT: LOGO ISLANDS (Palm Jumeirah)

Found this on the website of van Oord:

Before Van Oord’s work on the Palm Jumeirah was finished, the company was awarded another contract to design and build two smaller, private islands of 140,000 m3 each, in mirror image on each side of the Palm. The design- a wispy palm leaf- is the logo of the Dubai Palm Developers, which later became Nakheel, the real estate developer that has launched all of Dubai’s land reclamation projects.

Construction of the Logo Islands began in June 2003 and was completed in February 2005. Working in a confined area with the Palm still in progress presented special logistical challenges. A total of 4,400,000 m3 of sand and 1,000,000 tonnes of rock were used in the project, which includes a revetment, an underwater reef, a 270-metre-long quay wall, perched beaches and other small beaches. Access channels were dredged later to enable large yachts to reach both islands.

I've read that one of these islands is for Sh. Mohammed and the other for Sh. Hamdan. This was on Time or NG. Can't remember where, but read it a few months ago.

Zabeel plans Logo Island
CONSTRUCTION UAE
3 Aug 2007
Local developer Zabeel Investments plans to build a resort on one of the two small islands on either side of the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah. Known as Logo Island, the estimated AED 250 million ($68 million) resort will be built on the south-western island, and will include about 50 holiday villas, a small hotel, a spa and shops. The UK’s EC Harris is the project manager. Zabeel’s other projects on the Palm include the AED 2,100 million ($571 million) Tiara Residence (MEED 11:5:07).

No one will take you seriously ... without an exclamation mark at the end of the sentence(s).

The model is only a basic concept, nothing like the real thing.

Which logo island is this? Assume it is the one on the left. The one on the right was supposed to have a palace of some sorts.

From the shape, it is the one on the left indeed.

Obviously, the one to the right is on Sheikh's territorial waters.

There is some serious digging going on on the one on the right. Hope whatever is coming up does not obscure the view of the Burj Al Arab from my 9th floor balcony. If it is a low palace surrounded by date palms that is fine by me. It would be great if the royal yatch is berthed there.

I don't think it is cancelled. i was asking some questions at the Zabeel stand in Cityscape and they were being very coy about the development in front of Jumeirah
