so that was surely not too much considering those are 5-7 bedrooms with 5000 and 7000 sqft living space respectively. all that with private beach.

^yeah its about enough to get you 2 bedrooms in a terraced flat in london... no beach, neighbours above and below as well as next door, and no garden. Boy these people are being ripped off!! (for those without a sense of humour that last comment was sarcasm, the rest was deadly accurate).

In fact i struggle to think of many city housing estates where you have space between you and your neighbours, can somebody please post the pictures of houses in a big city which arent this close?? (and we're working on the $1000000 figure)

true, good point, i would still have preferred to have 30 houses less on each frond and houses for 2m $... but then this was a risk when the Palm was launched, buyers reaction was not sure in 2002.


and remember close ups of this place from street level (we have some) it is massive in fact.
anyway

One question, where will the school be? and other essential buildings like that...? i know most of these places will be used for just vacations, but im sure there will be enough who live there. and im curious, anyone know if these are in the design anywhere?

being that its dubai though, i could see them just building a 1km tall tower that can aim a hose and put out a fire anywhere in the city

IMO, this thing is absolutely hideous. Rows and rows of overbuilt, bland mansions. No variation whatsoever, even in colour. It's a great concept to begin with, but it would be way better if they hadn't cheaped out and made every house clones of the other one like a suburb in Texas.

Wish my family had the extra cash to buy one!

The townhouses near me are $700,000s! For this you get sooo much more!

just curious...who gonna live in them? I think there is a massive over supply of residentials in Dubai (read somewhere) and most people can't really afford it (people that migrate to Dubai)...Dubai's population is like what...a lil over 2 mill? It takes time for people to flock in and does Dubai have enough supply of employments (other than constructions) to bring people in? Please enlighten me..thx

all u heard is totally wrong.

it is exaclty the other way round.

the demand is much higher than the current supply of homes.

this is why all the massive projects are being built and it applies for residential, office and hotel.

rents have increased dramatically every year which is why people couldn't afford to stay in Dubai.

a 15% rents cap has been approved by the govt due to this last year, for example.

the population is in the 1.3 to 1.5m range most likely...

I agree. High density McMansions have to be the most boring concept, in my opinion.
