o ok, thanks! The thing I liked most about it was the lit-up marina and some of the buildings half over the water! I'm sure it will look great as long as it doesn't flood! lol

yea alot of work still to be done but this year you will see construction really starting to take off, that includes projects on the crescent and also all the projects on the trunk will commence as well (fingers crossed); the aim is for the palm to be completed no later than 2010 so the developers have ample time and i trully believe they will meet the deadline, although the deadlines for the villas and shoreline apts. was due 2006 and now they are just starting to be handed over this year (a year later! but patience is a virtue), so who knows only time will tell whn the entire island is finished lol

I think its look little corny to see one fake palm tree pop up out of blue. I think it need to add more palm trees to cover it up so it won't look so corny at all.

actually this island was built on was barren land with hardly any coral reefs, but now since the island has been created the breakwater (0r stones) used on the crescent have created a massive coral reef and is teaming with life, and the homes are 3-4 meters above see level so no flooding. land reclamtion is nothing new, why do people react so fanatical whn they see the palm;Dubai is not the first to do this kind of construction.

I doubt it would really matter once you're inside. Plus I bet it would be so damn hot outside you'd be inside so much that you won't notice your house is so close to your neighbors. Maybe I'm wrong about this but that's what I think.

"I still can't get over the fact that those houses are so close to each other." Try going to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, some of the houses look like identical dominos, and its less populated then Dubai! "What the h...?!! Are they intended to destroy the environment there?!!" What environment, its in the the middle of the desert! lol

It's just that its a lot like Suburbia here in the US (except on an awesome island). But the way I see these houses is that they will be "vacation/summer" homes. And personally I wouldn't want to go on vacation and be so close to people (unless I am going to the city or whatever.)

Do you know what I mean?
