This project is amazing but there is a problem in my opinion. The villas are too close to each other. If I was an owner of one of these villas, i wouldnt be confortable.

You are right.., it seems like claustrophobic. If I paid 3 million pounds.. I'd like to have a little bit more space. It looks like its been squized in there..

But the idea in general is very good.

I have a question: The 8-lane Motorway runs the trunk all the way to the tip? Or ow do they pretend to move 40,000 people around the palm?

I was watching a show about Atlantis last night with it's concentric rings and all and am surprised that Dubai hasn't put in a proposal to build something similiar. Not that I'm suggesting anything like that nor would I approve,was just wondering though

Is Altantis meant to be "Arabic" architecture? Where did they get their inspiration from? Disney's Aladdin? It is so tacky.

Awesome pictures!!! I am disappointed that they painted pink on that hotel building. Pink don't match the architecture of Atlantis resort. I think they should paint bold colors to make it more attractive and visible from far away.
