Is that really your response to this monumental engineering achievement? Seriously, is that the first thing you thought of after looking at those photos?

Yeah I was thinking the same thing, the design gets a bit repetitive with the same elevations nearly directly next to each other.

The ideia is quite good but it ends up looking fake because the shape of the palm looks like it's 6 year-old drawing... But it's amazing for the inovation.

from the Nakheel:

The Palm Jumeirah: background

Around the world, The Palm Jumeirah has become a symbol of Dubai’s incredible energy, growth and ambition. The truly iconic development stretches out into the Arabian Gulf in the shape of a date palm – the national plant of the United Arab Emirates.

The Palm Jumeirah is one of the world’s largest man-made islands (with The Palm Jebel Ali and The Palm Deira the only bigger ones) and home to a residential, tourism and leisure destination created by Nakheel, a key company in Dubai’s transformation from a sleepy fishing village into one of the fastest growing cities in the world.

Located off the coast of Jumeirah, Dubai’s most prestigious district, The Palm Jumeirah is a landmark in engineering providing luxury residences, retail and leisure facilities across three main areas – the trunk, crescent, and fronds.

The project commenced in 2001 with land reclamation – a feat in itself, as land reclamation of this size and scale, and in the complex shape of a palm tree, had never been achieved before. From the first grain of sand being laid in the Arabian Gulf to the first residents moving in will have taken little more than five years.

Announced in 2001, with sales launching in 2002, The Palm Jumeirah has attracted buyers from Chile to China, New York to Nepal, with the first residents moving into the 4,000 villas and apartments completed as part of the first phase of the project build at the end of 2006.

The project is still ongoing and the next 5-6 years will see the island become one of the world’s premier resorts, offering more than 30 beachfront hotels, including Atlantis, The Palm, as well as a wealth of retail and leisure choices.

The 16 fronds which form the head of The Palm Jumeirah will be home to some of the most luxurious villas in the world each with its own beachfront, and will create the main residential area of The Palm.

With an upscale mix of residences, retail, hotels and leisure, the trunk is the hub of The Palm Jumeirah. The Palm Golden Mile, opening in 2008, and the Shoreline Apartments will be home to a range of standard and luxury apartments, penthouses and town homes, all housed in waterfront buildings. The spectacular centerpiece of the trunk is The Trump International Hotel and Tower, a stunning hotel and residence tower and the first joint venture between Nakheel and The Trump Organization.

Of course, you won’t necessarily have to be on land to stay at The Palm Jumeirah, as one of the world’s most famous cruise-liners, the QE2, is set to find a permanent home there from 2009. Another world renowned tourism attraction due to take up residence will be the spectacular Cirque du Soleil. The permanent theatre will be an entirely original show specifically created for The Palm Jumeirah. The premier will be showcased towards the end of 2010.

Now synonymous with Dubai’s vision of the future, The Palm Jumeirah is an iconic landmark, not only in the Gulf region but throughout the world. Symbolic of the thriving tourism, leisure and retail industries of Dubai, The Palm Jumeirah is a feat of engineering the like of which has never been attempted before.

Proudly positioned as Nakheel’s flagship development, the glamorous, innovative and ambitious The Palm Jumeirah is a truly unique development which has been at the forefront of Dubai’s growth as an internationally recognised tourism and business destination.

I love statistics like this, why a 2m high 0.5m wide wall??? why not 1m by 1m, has the same overall size. And why not say a 3m high 1m wide wall that would circle the globe once, is three times more impressive??



Thanks for the massive update Imre, they are some amazing pictures, the waterpark next to atlantis looks amazing, and everything is starting to polish up with grass and trees appearing everywhere. Still no sign of the trump tower, any word on that?

Federation Island

Thx for the great new impression,

may I merely ask you to simply adjust the size of the figures for your next post minfadlak, so they will better fit on my display?

I have to present this update:

Russian Government too has given the nod to the 250-hectare Federation Island that will be built in the shape of Russia, stretching from a man-made Kaliningrad all the way to a scale model of the disputed Kuril Islands. It is the brain of the Dutch architect Erick van Egeraat to create a Russia-shaped luxury island in the Black Sea near Sochi by 2014, when the city hosts the Winter Olympics. It derives its name from the planned shape of the coastline, which will resemble Russia's boundaries. If all goes well as planned then the Federation Island will cost an estimated 155 billion rubles (over $6 billion), will have two marinas, religious centers, roads, parkland and artificial rivers, mimicking Russia's major rivers. Having apartments and villas to house 25,000, it is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. However the acting economics minister, German Gref quoted its cost at 250 billion rubles (about $10 billion). Well they certainly have made enough money from all the oil business!
