I think it's approved, still not under construction... Might be wrong though

Dubai, 10th November 2007: Nakheel, one of the world’s largest privately-held property developers, has announced that work has commenced on the installation of two marinas in the Anchor Marina of The Palm Jumeirah.


Living in one of those beachside houses on the edge of that fern on the left - I'd feel a bit mis-sold. The houses look very very big and nice but they're too packed in beside each other. The palm trunk is many more times over-developed than it was going to be originally. I'm sure people buying it thought they'd get their own private beach - now they have a marina 150m in front of them... they probably thought their kids could go swimming out from their beach - now they're more likely to get run down by a motorboat than at any beach in Spain or anywhere else. The first renders of the Palm are very different to what they are now. Maybe somebody could post some for a comparison ;-)

Very true, not to mention how nasty marinas tend to be, I don't think that was a smart move.

It looks good, but to be honest...i think that the houses are way too close, looks like a concrete jungle on sand

It will look so much better when they landscape and paint the buildings...although there doesn't seem to be much room for trees and what not...

It looks fantastic to me, sure not all of the landscaping is done yet, but its turning out to become a very interesting city (the whole of Dubai, and especially but not exclusively becouse of this).
