Why is everything seem to build out to sea? Would it be cheaper to excavate inland to bring the sea in ??

enough lakes and creeks extensions will be built within the city
if they would build these projects in the city there was water everywhere, i wouldn't like that
a city located at the sea, so where is the need to move these to the continent????

^I'd think your answer would best be found in the threads relating to your question.


Anyway, these projects are mind-boggling. After seeing the Palm Jumeirah, knowing it's the smallest, it's hard to comprehend.

Why is everything build at sea and not on land?

Simple...that;s never done before, people need get up with something new and this is it.
Besides that, it's easier to control land in the sea instead of controlling the sea in the land. It's therefor cheaper and looks a lot better also.

dubai is not only the 3 palms, dubai waterfront and the world
most of the construction will be on the continent

dubai only has about 70km of seafront of which only a few kilometres are usable as a beach. with these developments we will get more than 1000km of seafront and beaches!

Dutch Companies are doing the land reclaimation for the Palm and other projects. As Casper said, they have done that for centuries, so is logic that Dubai will aproach them to do the work.

Tokyo has also had a lot of reclamation projects to expand development in the past. But the Dutch are the masters at it.

So where are the street side cafes and red light district, and where is the urban dense non-car oriented city, funky bars and clubs, laneways of darkstone and granite, large shaded avenues, long stretches of open nightclubs along famous avenues that pump music into the early morning hours, and the drinking on the beach in cabanas, and the hot looking chicks with designer label clothes and the guys all done up in great brands looking good as ever.......shit not anywhere to be seen here.

Haha, that's a romantic view of the Netherlands. I wish that's how it is every day. At least not what I've seen yet in my country (the Netherlands).
It's true that we're laidback, but that's changing the last years.

But it's good to hear that we're the masters of a specific building technique.

^dubai lover missed the point

of course its already under construction, who doubted that, who said anything in contrary????? all that was said is that it will never be like the netherlands, maybe because its a muslim country, maybe because its not supposed to have a red light district, being a luxury residential complex and all. It wont have the same architecture as the netherlands, it will have a variety of styles of architecture, this isnt a crack at dubai, its just a different kind of project to the mass land reclamation in the netherlands.

unless dubai announce amsterdam world, this is not what is under construction,

^ And who ever compared it to Netherland????? The Neatherland was mentioned only becouse they have experience in land reclamation so they are doing the job in Dubai also.

I think there's a need for a "age-check" for some Australian forumers, so many strange & shallow coments are coming lately from them, and maybe we would know why.

The company I work with, do business with Dutch Companies, and I'm in contact with them. My opinion is that you Dutch are a little laid back more then the rest of W. Europe, especially on Friday: "good luck" if there was a problem to be solve that specific day of the week.

That's true. Especially in the contruction sector people see friday as a weekens beginning and a lot of people work half a day on a friday. But the rest of the week we usually work hard so we can stop early on a friday.

It's true that you can't make a city like Dubai simmelar (how do you write that?) because, for example, a red light district can never be made in a muslim country because it's not right according to the believe. Also, I wouldn't want a city in the Netherlands look like a city in a foreign country and I think that people in Dubai don't want their city to look like Amsterdam or The Hague.
