What in the hell is your problem with the intersection on the entrance of the island, how in the hell will the residents and visitors alike, access their vilas/apartments/hotels?

That is the only road access to a 2 miles long & 2 miles wide archipelagus. My worry and the other Dubai residents, is that it will not be enough and they should have already planned BIGGER with 2 more lanes in each directions.
Exactly. 10k-15k people per island and probably that amount again of people wanting to visit it just to look around each day (obviously some time after it's build...i dare say that they'll be a rush of people wanted it visit soon after completion) you need that much roadway. It may look unattractive but it's cost effective and it gets the job done. Problem will come when they need to expand it...if they ever build anything in place of the villas...because there's no where to put any more road apart from going skywards which would look worse.

I love this photo. Don't really know why each house has a pool, then they have their own beach. Probably more privacy, and fresh water.

I want the one with the golden globes on the top :P.

Also there doesn't seem to much in the way of beach for each villa...their almost sitting on the water. It might just be that view though.

also, the main point is the houses are quite close together, but have a massive open space in front, where the beach is.

watch the latest nakheel coporate video to get an idea of this.

I agree. Some trees and green grass where they can put it will make the place look even more amazing.

It still confounds me that people bitch about how many houses are crammed together. Has anyone here EVER been to the west coast? LA, San Diego, San Francisco... mile after mile after mile of homes crammed shoulder to shoulder. Hell, at least these places look nice, and while close together, it's not like they share a wall. Too many kids from the 'burbs...

The houses are too close together.
