Thanks for the photos Krazy! The effort is much appreciated, though I must admit I am disapointed by what I see.

I do not know how the builders could make the entry to Palm Jumeirah more monotonous - sand colored buildings with similar architecture on a sand bar. If someone said it was a low-income housing project, I would believe them.

So much money, so little creativity. I hope Mediera and Jebel Ali are more interesting to the eye.

The scale of the project can really be appreciated when viewed at ground level like that. We are so used to seeing aerial shots that you forget this thing is enormous, I mean that is all reclaimed land at the end of the day!

I think at the moment it looks a bit monotone but that will change once the greenery and alike goes in and construction wraps up.

Seeing that pic above...the Palm looks a lot more...bumpy...than I originally thought.

Was that intended?

This is only the entrance to the residential part of the Shoreline apartments.

Those sand coloured buildings are really bland and ugly. I like diversity, not that boring crap.

This is the tunnel linking the outer front with the trunk. It was created by sinking sheet pilling and creatting a coffer dam them backfilling with sand and working in the dry. Its now complete and the sand is being removed to allow the water over the top of the tunnel and hense the completin of the tunnel
