It would look a bit weird on the Crescent but then again so does Royal Atlantis...

Glad they didn't start on the Palm Jebel Ali after all, now they can still make all the mistakes on Palm Jumeirah and learn from them and not do them on Palm Jebel Ali once they start on it properly. A shame for Palm Jumeirah but they gotta learn the hard way.

I'm sure the tiny roads on Palm Jumeirah will be perfect for servicing huge skyscrapers on either side of the crescent, too. Hope they build a few more of those so you wait hours stuck in traffic just to get to them.

Alas! Looking at PJ, it seems nobody at Nakheel has any clue as to the infrastructure planning. And honestly speaking, although it's still possible to do the PJA's infra in a proper way, but the very palm shape is far from ideal for a thorough urban planning. At the very least, I'd recommend them to introduce some substantial changes into the crescent layouts. Everything else is not so easy to fix.

Yeah the whole palm idea is one huge bottleneck the whole way in every direction. Jebel Ali would at least have the advantage of having three access points and not one. If they had kept Palm Jumeirah low-density lowrises with only the Atlantis hotel as a bigger building, wouldn't have been that big an issue I reckon, but they wanna go for plastering tons of stuff on it.

I never noticed the entrance to The Palm would work as a bottleneck, so it's not the main thing that requires restructuring. The main problem starts after it. Because there are 2 main bi-directional routes, instead of just 1, but a valid one. And both of them are mixed with pedestrian traffic. The main, a more spacious, but a single highway should've been isolated, f.e. by lowering it like they've done on this short part of the road: http://wikimapia.org/#lat=25.1205&lon=55.13&z=19). Dubai has similar solutions in many places, with proper subterranean bifurcations. This way, they would keep the pedestrian walkways to remain all-terrestrial, and properly fenced highway openings. And there would be no speed-humps requirement, no signals, no life threat, fewer accidents, and millions of man-hours saved monthly (and millions kgs of CO2 pollutions as extra burned fuel after unnecessary stops).

This is just one solution, and just for the Palm trunk. There are many more issues to be dealt with, but Nakheel doesn't give a phak.

I think if they were to build another trunk sprout on the other side of the trunk to give some balance to PJ. They could build this Tower there and it would be better for everyone.

The Palm has a totally wrong planning in every aspect in general, and it's realization in particular.

For example, one of the problems: this Palm has 2 wharves on each side. Let's moderately assume one of them releases 2 tons of crap to the Palm waters every year. But that's on one side of the trunk. Another side pretty well balances that out, to evenly distribute the total amount crap among the Palm waters. So instead of one place of the crap concentration, we have even more beaches spoilt.

Another problem: if anyone would want to spoil all the waters of the entire Palm, where would he bring those wharves to? Right into the middle of the Palm! You know how the Palm waters stink?

A Palm Villa provides a tranquil residential experience. You can relax, stroll, sit on the beaches without any hassle. It is one of the more sought after properties in dubai and with new developments in the pipeline it will e a self sustained district. Few things to watch out for:
1) renovations done to the property (they are usually due for renovation now if it is the cookie cutter villa that Nakheel provided)
2) Avoid low number villas as they are harder to re sell and do not provide a good view of the water and have a small shoreline
3) Look at surrounding neighbour's villas, are they maintained? This will give you evidence if someone live in them or not.

Happy Hunting

The water is full of weed and no matter how cool the villa's are you barely have any breathing space between your house and your two neighbors. A branch tip villa is the must as you have way more open water however they are hard to find !

Nakheel has opened a new beachfront strip of restaurants on Palm Jumeirah as part of its Dh20 billion push into retail and hospitality.

The Dh120 million Club Vista Mare located at the end of the island’s main trunk features seven new restaurants all located directly on the beach.

Cuisine on offer includes Italian, Middle Eastern, European, American Nikkei (Peruvian-Japanese) and Ethiopian, the developer said in a statement.


The developer of Dubai’s palm-shaped islands has been investing heavily in its retail and hospitality units as it seeks to boost recurring revenues and rely less on residential property sales.

It is also developing other retail and dining destinations on the island including Nakheel Mall, The Pointe and the Golden Mile which is already open.

"We have delivered an exceptional new venue that offers a diverse collection of dining options in a stunning setting," said Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah.


Located between the Shoreline Apartments and Tiara Residences on the eastern side of the island, Club Vista Mare covers 50,000 square feet and can seat 2,000 guests.

The middle eastern place looks really nice. Rest of the units don't look close to opening
