Guys, it's cool you all find it an awesome website, but please ask Brian for permission to use his pics. Maybe you already did, than it's okay I didn't expect to deal with such enthousiastic forum guys, who would all post his pics here I only put his name above the update as a mark of honor.

Thanks!

I know they plan on having a couple thousand workers live on a renovated ferry from Greece. This will be docked adjacent to the trunk so they won't actually be living on the palm though.

As far as actual residents go, none of the villas are completed yet and the infrastructure isn't ready either so it will be a while. Someone correct me but I remember hearing that they plan on handing over the first villas at the end of this year possibly?

I'm scratching my head wondering that as well. I seriously hope that they fill everything that they've building and actually have a need for much more.

I think a lot there must be a lot of investors purchasing it and a lot of relatively rich people so they can have a piece of something extraordinarily cool. Last time I heard of it, these were selling pretty fast. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard that the Burj Dubai units released for sale a few months ago were sold out in a matter of hours, and I'm pretty sure that at least one of the palms have already been completely sold. They're not too expensive either, I remember checking the price, and for a semi-detatched at the palm, it's only like in the low to mid 200k's. Pretty amazing pricing if you ask me, a semi's more expensive than that in a lot of large cities!
