Really tall buildings on the Palm.

Can't wait to see if it's completed.

It's a repeat, I saw it last year.

Very good doc though! Just a bit out of date.

Amazing pictures. Cheers for the link.

Looks like good progress on the trunk section.
Wouldn't fancy one of those apartments (if thats what they are) that lap round the ends of each frond effectively linking the apartments on each frond. Would be like living on a main road. Noisy!!

looks like there is still a serious lack of infrastructure for the fronds.

great shots though.

Thanks for posting these excellent photo's. The Project will look great once everything is done. I hope they don't wait to long before starting the Trump Tower. So it doesn't end up getting finished a year after evrything else is completed.

actually the first shorlines were to be ready sept 2005 (initially when sold in 2002).

naturally delays happened, so those are ready end 2007, the villas will be handed over from end 2006 to end 2007 probably.
first hotels on the crescent and the golden mile on the trunk will be ready by 2008.

the whole thing might be done completely with landscaping by 2010.

we heard it will be "opened" this november, nakheel will do a big promo i guess.
