The tunnel entrance should have been 50 meters more inland. There's to much of the tunnel showing in the water; in my opinion.

I think eventually the entire tunnel will be covered with water and you will only see the entrances

taken march 4, villas look quite nice

I think it would have a supertall somewhere in the middle, the Trump Dubai? Or maybe I'm wrong.

Yup the villa`s look nice. The neighbourhoods are nice compact what gives it a warm and safe feeling and still have enough privacy to enjoy.

and once each villa owner moves into their home and adds additionally to the basic landscaping this island will be looking better day by day . the water looks great and the views are astounding.

This is my favorite render! Is this accually what it is planned to look like? it looks different then the other renders, or is this just a more recent one, which I hope it is!

no this is an older model, the canal down the center has bin scrapped and replaced by a park, an also the village centre which is the tallest ******** in that model has bin totally redesigned thank God and has a much more modern look to it.

I hope these pictures arent to big for you guys, its just they have better detail the larger they are.

This is the most commie-blocky of all the models. Good thing is that in reality there'll be more variety. The village centre and trump tower will complement each other nicely and will stand out since they're mostly glass.

I love this development! I wish that these dozens of looking similar buildings would be custom or little more colorful to make it to look more attractive than it is right now. Landscaping helps alot but I still like to see some colors to add on these buildings... That is my opinion.
