Depends on which ones you want to buy, prices range from less than $100 K to up to over a million.

Someone said multi-million dollar homes, and that's not the case. I was just pointing out that the houses that are so close to each other are well below a million. Not that 300-400k is cheap or anything. The homes that are crammed next to each other aren't the million dollar homes.

Hmmm, tiger and hummerhead sharks were sighted around the Palm. These animals were not seen around shore before. Propably the construction noice and the new marine life around the palm is attracting them.

By the other hand, the dolphins dissapeared, propably sceared away from the noice. Hopefully they'll return when the construction will be compleated and the noices will stop.

Hehe new theory, construction noise attracts sharks, nice. So therefore, I can come to the conclusion that the coast of dubai is filled with sharks now turned into aussie now.

500k isnt that bad for a house around here. They were selling the townhouses down the street from me starting at 600k.

1st island of 'the world' is up!



http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tm...1/ny19103311445

A boat with the Dubai flag approaches a sample island which is one of the 300 individual islands of 'The World' project off the coast of Dubai, in this Dec. 1, 2004 file photo. The $14 billion project that is reshaping this segment of the Persian Gulf coast is the world's largest land reclamation effort and the focus of one of its most fanciful land rushes. It's also part of Dubai's ambitions to rival Singapore and Hong Kong as a business hub, and Las Vegas as a leisure capital.

Ok my english is bad, but i have one question

Does the people living in those houses will have "property" of the water ??? For example, anyone with a boat will be able to reach those houses or visit them really close, etc. and that will be kind of anoying or insecure to the people living in the houses.

the have a massive police and security force for the whole project, power boats and stuff

but even if you have a boat you're not allowed to enter the project unless you're a registered resident, hotel guest or a residents' guest.
the private islands will not be open for the public

maybe there is some kind of a shuttle service to the wildlife refuge island, restaurant island, jungle island and castle island. these 4 islands could be open for the public

Burj Dubai and freedom Towers are in two different cities, in two different continents, thousands of miles away and at least 14 hours long journey by direct flight.

The Palm jumeirah and The World, are both off Dubai shore, at a swimming distance away and build by the same developer.

I don't mind them being together here since they are quite similar to each other and as Altind put it "a swimming distance away".

so change the name of the thread to dubai offshore developments, its just confusing to stick things together like this. i could understand grouping all the palms together, thats even been done on the website, but the world project is completely different.

Ok maybe not freedom tower, but how about lumping jumeirah lake towers in with here because they're both jumeirah, then burj dubai as well because they both have water and towers... you could lump everything together, but these threads get big enough as it is. besides that article was posted in the world threead in the dubai forums days ago and was seen by anyone whose interested
