amazing project, right now all the villas look like some industrial facilities but I know it will be better once that shiney black street is layed out and the palms are places and all the other good....


Does anyone know what this hole is for?

Do you know if they will fix the outline of the palm island, because now the sand or whatever it is, its just going into the water and look out of order will they add like nice walls around the palm to make a nice outline?

National Geographic said that the ocean currents are being redirected by the Palm. This is causing a deformity in the line of the beach on the mainland. Is there any solution to this problem besides regular refilling of sand on mainland beaches?
