Hey guys, can anyone tell me what is going on in this picture? Looks very cool and im guessing these are a series of cores belonging to several residential tower projects?

I said the places near or next to those areas are ghetto. Have you even been to california? I lived here all my life so I know what I am talking about.

What a project. I really am stunned that this ever got done. Ony in Dubai eh?

I have one comment though. I believe the palm shape was concieved because it would offer the maximum fontage for a given amount of land reclamation. The idea was to provide the larges number of `sea view` properties. I have been experimenting today with a few different layouts and I believe this is in fact true true other than creating a spiral but then water circulation would be impossible. Anyway, the point I was going to make I that these villas do not have a sea view. Their view is much more like that of a riverside property. The fact that they properties have sold suggests its not a major issue but I must confess that I really love ocean view properties and it seems a bit of a shame that in a location offering one of the finest ocean frontages anywhere (and lots of it) ,any residents will be denied that experience.

That said, I would swap my suburban london house for one of the palm villas tomorrow! Great city and great projects. Looking forward to visiting this summer.

The idea was for every house to have their own bit of beach. Of course it's different for the apartments but this shape results from trying to make the coastline as big as possible.
