Its not a mobilephone signal disguised as a tree, its a mobilephone antenna IN a tree. This is both hilarious and very cool. Excellent ideas like these are what make Dubai so fascinating. I doubt this is the first city this idea is applied but its great they are using it here.

You can see the room on the third floor (but not the attached bathroom etc.) in the last photo.

I was pleasantly surprised how far apart these villas are. Of course, there's still not enough space for buffalo to roam, but it certainly looks a great deal better than when everything was just concrete.

Admittedly both villas were largelg de-snagged, there were no obvious horrors. On the contrary, the finishing was of a pretty high standard - certainly far better than I was expecting. Overall, very exciting and definitely one in the eye for all the critics out there.

Many villas look very much the same but that also makes the overall appereance look so clean aesthetically. Altough i dont think all should be the same there could be restrictions so that they fit to the overall look.

The addition of bushes, grass and trees make a huge difference. Very nice.

Nakheel seems to go the right way with this one.

agree Goss the palm is great; the fronds are somewhat dense, but landscaping is taking care of that as u can see in the great pictures, the density kinda reminds me of an italian village, now i know nothing compares to the old world craftmanship of italy, but the density is reminiscent of a beautiful village except here on the palm its avillage full of beachfront mansions, surrounded by skyscrapers that George Jetson would feel at home in lol. 2011 the palm will be so busy, construction will be done and it will be alot more green(landscaped), it will by second to none, well maybe to the other palms and 'the world' lol.

When you look at those pictures; while keeping in mind that only 5 years ago. Not any of that land even existed. This project is an amazing accomplishment. With the palm tree's, grass, and soon beautiful women tanning on all that beach front. What a place to live this will be.

Well personally I would like to live in the city. And then have a private summer home or something.

We just have different lifestyles... is all. Or preferences. or whatever.

There are dosens of different cultures in this planet, each of them, developed in conjuction with specific places, historical events and adaptation to the local enviroment, therefore being unique to the place and ... different form one another.

Since you seams to lack the capacity and will to understand that, so (sorry to say that but) your opinion doesn't have much weight.

Cheers mate.

Wow!!!!!!!

What a project! This is simply unbelievable.

My jaw is dropping like a rock! Incredible progress. It's like Sim City, really!!

This has to be one of the most incredible construction projects the world has ever seen, especially when you consider the time within which it has been largely completed.

Press Release
Trunk masterplan unveiled for The Palm Jumeirah

February 1, 2007

Nakheel, the UAE’s leading developer, has unveiled a revised design for the trunk of The Palm Jumeirah masterplan incorporating the major waterfront leisure facilities, including marinas, beachfront hotels and shoreline clubhouses, that have been announced since the original concept design was revealed in 2001.

In order to achieve a better balance between waterfront leisure and recreational facilities and also provide valuable community space for residents, a landscaped park will now become the focal point at the centre of the trunk.

The 7.8 hectare park will include a wide range of facilities including a large water element with pools and fountains being key features. The park will also be an experiential feature, creating attractive, useable space. Residents will not only have beautiful park side views, but also the opportunity to enjoy the space physically.

The new design will enhance the community of the trunk as one continuous destination, as opposed to a number of separate, disconnected developments. Residents will be able to walk from their apartment to anywhere on the trunk – from the clubhouses to retail at The Golden Mile, and from hotels on the trunk to the luxury retail centre.

Chris O’Donnell, Nakheel Chief Executive, said: “In evolving The Palm Jumeirah into one of the world’s premier resorts for living, tourism and leisure we are constantly looking at ways to add to the amenity of life on the island. The new park will be an experiential feature, creating beautifully landscaped areas and a lively space for residents to engage, play and relax whether that’s a leisurely stroll through the park or a picnic with the family.”
