The main door to the apartment block was locked but we managed to find a workmens entrance via a side staircase, It was obvious as soon as we entered that there is still so much interior work still to do. All communal area's were very much a work-in-progress and the same for the actual apartments. The living room and kitchen for the F types are big and not really reflected in the photographs. Bedroom 2 was a nice size but I was a bit disappointed with bedroom 1. The shape is such that it is difficult to figure out exactly where the bed is supposed to go without it blocking a window or the balcony, and the 'walk-in-wardrobes' were not quite as I envisaged.

Very nice views fronm the balconies. Those views will not be spoiled by the Golden Mile which starts a little bit further up the trunk. Suppose it depends on where the hotels are built as to whether any of those views are maintained.

Driving onto the Palm for the first time was just incredible and quite breath-taking. I've got a few more photo's taken from the car as we were driving up the trunk, and a few of a furnished type A in Al Sultana. Absolutely stunning!!

Featuring exceptional unit layouts and balconies surrounded by calm, azure waters and marina views, we are confident that the Marina Residences luxury apartments, located at the heart of The Palm Jumeirah, will offer one of the region’s finest investments.

There are a range of two and three bedroom apartments, types A-D with acute attention to detail shown by the use of top quality finishes available in two styles. Spacious and comfortable interiors are complemented by distinctive accent lighting, timber–floored master bedrooms, terraces with sea views, generous walk-in closets and beautifully appointed bathrooms.

This private launch is by invitation only to existing Palm Jumeirah investors, offering you an exclusive opportunity to purchase before the official public launch on 11th March.

Yesterday I watched N-TV (German TV). There was an one our report about the offshore developments in Dubai. They say, the sand from the Palms have to heap up all the time. If they don't do this the sand will ablate.

Very intersting report!!

Nakheel Marina



Marinas
At least two further large marinas will be built on The Palm Jumeirah, located
on either side of the trunk. Facilities will include an upland clubhouse on a
grand and luxurious scale for The Palm Jumeirah main yacht club, as well
as marina offices and a capitainerie.
Island Global Yachting (IGY) is the world’s leading marina company
with projects under management and developments worldwide. IGY is
designing, developing and managing marinas and mega-yacht facilities
to a 5-star hotel standard, previously unheard of in this sector.
Befitting the name, Marina Residences on The Palm Jumeirah offers
its residents panoramic marina and island views spanning the Arabian
Gulf and Dubai coastline. At the doorstep of each tower is one of
Dubai’s largest marinas, Anchor Marina, with berths for over 700
vessels and world-class facilities.
Access to the marina’s clubhouse and the finest marina leisure
facilities will allow residents to live the Riviera lifestyle providing
the ultimate waterfront lifestyle experience.

Panoramic
Located at the tip of The Trunk of The Palm Jumeirah, Marina Residences’
six towers rest on landscaped podiums. The towers rise to form a ‘v’ shape,
maximising the sea views outwards, while the architecture of the towers
echoes that of the region with arabesque forms and colouring. Featuring
exceptional unit layouts and balconies surrounded by calm, azure waters,
year-round sunshine and exceptional waterfront views, Marina Residences
offers high-rise living on The Palm Jumeirah, where an exclusive address
meets a central location.







Amenities
Outstanding amenities and services are available to residents of the
community. Technology features include high-speed Internet access and
‘future technology-ready’ features, and homes are cable TV-, telephone-
and entertainment system-ready. Safety is also top-of-mind, realised by a
state-of-the-art security system, high quality switches and outlets, CCTV
monitoring of public areas, and secure undercover car parking facilities.
For the health and well-being of residents, membership to an exclusive
club surrounded by landscaped gardens is also available, with facilities
including a gym, Jacuzzi, swimming pool and children’s pool and play
area. A concierge desk at the main entry of each building is ready to serve
the everyday needs of residents.

Finishes
Finishes, available in classic or contemporary styles, accentuate the
craftsmanship and thoughtfulness that go into each and every Marina
Residences apartment. From full body porcelain tiles, stainless steel
sinks and branded appliances to timber floors, stone vanity tops and
full height wall tiles, Marina Residences offers the choice and high
standards one would expect from a home on The Palm.

Unit A
3 Bedroom
Internal Area 342 sqm - 3685 sqft
Terrace Area 51 sqm - 548 sqft

Destined to be a residential, tourism and boating
paradise, The Palm Jumeirah was launched in 2001. In only five years
since the first grain of sand was laid in the Arabian Gulf, Nakheel has
begun handing over properties to the island’s first residents.
Construction work for The Palm Monorail, which began in March 2006,
is scheduled for completion in December 2008. This will transport
2,000 to 3,000 people per hour on and off the island and will stop at four
main stations: on land at the Gateway Tower, the Trump International
Hotel and Tower, the luxury shopping centre, and will terminate at
The Crescent at Atlantis.
Progress Soil improvement on the Marina Residences site was completed in mid-
October 2006 with structural works commencing on the towers in
December 2006. The structural completion of towers is expected by
the end of 2007, with final finishing works projected for completion
in December 2008.
The preliminary master planning of the marinas was completed in October
2005. Each Marina on The Palm Jumeirah is currently undergoing the
Concept Design Review Phase. Nakheel Marinas and IGY work closely
with Dubai Municipality to ensure that cultural and environmental
considerations are satisfied.

Launch prices:
A type: 5.7-6.5 M dhs
B type: 3.3-4.1 M dhs
C type: 2.5 - 3.1 M dhs
D type: 2.3-2.7 M dhs

If you want to buy something before public launch or just need more info call Judy (+971 50 515 1065) or email [email protected]

It looks like it will turn out very nice, and with the views towards the marina, media city, Burj Al Arab and SZR in the far :O

Just shame that the design on trump int h&t was changed, the old design was better imo.



Is this solarcelltesting - http://i9.************/47mw7jm.jpg ? How are the solarenergy projects in the UAE going? Are tests of the solarenergypowered AC's finished in Abu Dhabi yet?
