An absolute feat of engineering, but far too many large homes too close to each other, for the kinda money you'd be expecting to pay you should have at least a homes width of space between you and your neighbour!

Amazing project.
However, I am a bit concerned that the water in this little shallow bays between the palm fronds will start to get muddy and full of algae. Especially in this hot climate. Same for all the mainland beaches directly behind the palm.

The mainland beaches right beneath the Palm have lost the clearlness becouse of the strong residious from the construtction and loose sand particles from the reclamation. Also more sea creatures are approaching the shore.

Of course beach erosion, due to shifting sea currents is the biggest problem that Dubai beaches are facing becouse of The Palm.

As for the aereas between the funds, if it hasn't got muddy and full of alges in the 2 years since they were compleated, I doubt it will start now.

I hope they have taken the sea rises into account due to the ices caps melting. The properties dont seem to be high enough.

Who would have thunk that this would have been so popular. Beat me with a stick!

I notice a lack of swimming pools. Is that because everyone has their own beach or do people generally have pools inside their homes where it's cooler.

If the ice caps do melt we'll just build a huge hole and canal and channel the excess water to the Sahara desert. It's amazing what technology can do.

Only $55 million to landscape the entire development? That seems like a bargain to me.

almost every signature villa has its own pool, just not yet visible.

Just find this thread - nice and amazing ! I will pay great attention in the days ahead ......

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.
