I love the palms, but it's too much dense. Buildings there are very similar to each other

I guess they may need to "clean up" the algaes from time to time, if it is algaes. We will just have to wait and see. If its a problem the developers know about it and will probably know what it takes to fix it.

This is pretty amazing. However, you probably need to put down a load of money, only to have all your neighbors being able to look inside your house, they're so close together.

Way to close together! What a wasted oppurtunity, even on the palm they're squeezing as many buildings in on a tiny plot. Still an interesting project although it's not turning out to be anywhere near as exciting or impressive as i had hoped.

i can't help but notice the large amount of english that is posted on signs and advertisements in Dubai....I have even seen some advertisements entirely in English, with no Arabic at all. Anyone know how many people in Dubai speak English as a second language?

I made the experience that more people can speak Englisch in Dubai than in Hong Kong.

Yep, I made the same observation. Pretty much everybody in Dubai speaks a high standard of English, so it's not surprising to see the signs in 50/50.

Ya i really don't like the yellow. They could have mixed it up a bit instead of making the same towers over and over again. Gives it a pretty commie block look.

I think once the Greenery and shrubs are added the yellow will look excellent!
