^ At a guess, deeper water as it's further out and the islands all being seperate rather than connected are making it a more complicated reclaimation proccess.

Cool - cheers D-L.

Just to ask again, is the star off the end of Dubai Waterfront, is that the underwater hotel that's been proposed or something else?

BIGGEST NEWS OF THE YEAR!!!!
finally we have a first list of confirmed hotels



Premier international hotel brands to locate on The Palm, Jumeirah

Nakheel, Dubai's premier property developer, today released details regarding hotel developments on its signature development, The Palm, Jumeirah.


The Palm, Jumeirah.

Following the announcement earlier this week of plans for The Palm Trump International Hotel and Tower - the first joint investment project between Nakheel and The Trump Organisation and a landmark building at the centre of the trunk of The Palm, Jumeirah - Nakheel today announced that more than 25 of the top international hotel brands will be located on the development, providing a wide variety of beachfront resorts and greatly enhancing Dubai's tourism offer.

Confirmed hotels include world-famous brands, Movenpick, Anantara, Fairmont, Radisson SAS, Hilton, Metropolitan, Shangri La, One and Only, and Atlantis, who will be creating a water-theme park hotel resort at the centre of the Crescent. Other key brands currently in serious discussions with Nakheel to locate on the development include Starwood, Marriott, Oberoi, Chedi, Taj, and Dusit.

James Wilson, Chief Executive Officer, Nakheel, said: 'We have attracted many of the most respected hotel brands in the world, ensuring that The Palm, Jumeirah will be one of the world's finest tourism destinations, a mega-resort and landmark attraction. These hotels will attract hundreds of thousands of visitors a year, playing a key role in Dubai's tourism offer'

Dubai is one of the fastest growing tourism destinations in the world, with visitor numbers almost doubling in the last five years. In 2004 its hotel industry played host to a record 5.42 million guests in 371 hotels. The impressive year on year growth is the result of the Government's proactive policy of cooperation and support to the private sector, the implementation of a well envisioned strategy, an impressive and varied tourism offer, and key infrastructure developments.

'One of Dubai's key attractions is its natural assets of year-round sun and beautiful beaches' James Wilson continues. 'However, due to our small amount of natural beachfront, there are currently only approximately 20 hotels with beach access. The Palm, Jumeirah will add approximately 30 such hotels. There will be over 12,000 hotel rooms and 2,500 serviced apartments situated on the island in a wide range of hospitality types from elite luxury resorts to family resorts and health and spa resorts.'

Construction will commence on all hotels shortly, James Wilson confirmed: 'We are implementing strict development timetables and will be ensuring all hotel developers on The Palm, Jumeirah commence construction within six months to ensure that all construction works are minimised on the island when residents move into their villas and apartments at the end of 2006.'

The Palm, Jumeirah's Shoreline Apartments reach construction milestone


Nakheel, Dubai's premier property developer and the master developer of The Palm, today marked a milestone in the construction of The Palm, Jumeirah, with a 'topping out' ceremony on the Shoreline Apartments.






Nakheel, Dubai's premier property developer and the master developer of The Palm, today marked a milestone in the construction of The Palm, Jumeirah, with a 'topping out' ceremony on the Shoreline Apartments.

The ceremony marked the completion of the concrete structure of the first of the 22 buildings housing the 2700 luxury apartments that flank the east side of the island.

Present at the ceremony were: James Wilson, Chief Executive, Nakheel; Marwan Al Qamzi, Head of Procurement & Contracts, Nakheel; Scott Hutchinson, Project Director, Turner Construction International, Shoreline Apartments Project Management; and Oktay Tavuz, Chief Executive, Bin Beilala Baytur, Contractor for the sea side Shoreline Apartments.

Marwan Al Qamzi, Head of Procurement & Contracts, Nakheel commented:


'The topping out of the first of the Shoreline Apartments buildings is a significant milestone in the progress of construction on The Palm, Jumeirah, which is on schedule for delivery to investors in November 2006. The topping out of the other 21 buildings will follow shortly, with almost 90% of the total concrete already poured. Interior designs are being finalised and the procurement of fit-out materials has commenced'.


The Shoreline Apartments provide luxury living on the east side of the trunk of The Palm, Jumeirah. Each apartment contains spacious balconies with breathtaking views of the Jumeirah coastline and Burj Al Arab. A 400 slip marina provides berthing space, whilst residents will have exclusive access to both a Master Marina clubhouse and a private beach club. The canal on the west side of the shoreline apartments will provide further leisure and relaxation opportunities.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, Nakheel commented: 'The Shoreline Apartments are an integral element of the residential offer on The Palm, Jumeirah. We are currently enhancing the landscaping design to provide even more exclusive beach and pool areas with breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf, ensuring residents in the apartments experience luxury beachfront living of the highest quality. The Palm, Jumeirah is fast turning from a vision into a reality and we look forward to reaching more milestones like this'.
