Glass? Are they crazy? Not the whole thing right? Cause what if there is a car accident? They should just have a strip at the top of glass. Like a skylight.

If you look at this picture you can see the green areas under the Marina ,
those are Jumeirah Islands/Villages,
and the whole development above, directly under the Marina and the Marina itself, will be completely landscaped when the projects are almost finished.
Not to forget that the area where the arrow is, will get a huge lake between the towers. (Jumeirah Lakes)
So it will of course not stay like that.
Btw..you will not see a lot of green anyway,as there are built so much towers, that the density will be that amazing you will not think about any grass in the area hehe!

.

The houses on the palms seem to be denser than what the rendering showed. It looks almost like an American suburb rather than upscale villas.

Well, this is the Dubai version of the American Suburb, completed with waterfronts. It will be very nice because the houses look very beautiful and elegant even though they are so close to each other.

And underground tunnel to link the trunk and the outter ring? Can this thing get any better!!

Will the houses have their own boat landings...like in some parts of Florida? Probably not possible because the houses are too close to each other.

The Palms will be the best place to vacation there. The rest of Dubai won't match to it! I'm just afraid of the high temperatures.

This one's going to have submarine transportation facilities. There will be water homes with docks on the Palm Jebel Ali.

I still find it hard to believe that all this shit is actually being built, it seems way too crazy to be real, I will definitely have to Dubai at least once before I die

It does look pretty impressive but if I were paying megabucks for one of those villas there is NO WAY I'd want them built so close together. It's beginning to look like American suburbia instead of an oasis.

How much are the houses anyway? They are too close together, but if the price is right I suppose it doesn't matter.

LOL, This made me realise how huge the development of Dubai is, with one terraforming megaproject next to the other.

I realy cannot believe this, what appeared to be a vison has become reality!

That is the first time I've seen a picture of the massive crescent project. Any idea what kind of area surface it would be (square km or square miles)?
