The Palm Dubai

(The palm Jumeirah)

The Palm Jumeirah is a manmade archipelago in Dubai, UAE. It is Created using land reclamation by the Nakheel which extends into the Persian Gulf.

It is a part of the larger series of developments called the palm islands. including the palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira, which when completed will together increase Dubai’s shoreline by a total of 520 km, it had an estimated population of 10,500 as of 2016.

According to Wikipedia, It is located in the Jumeirah coastal area of the emirates of Dubai, in UAE.

Its construction was done by 2 dutch (joint venture) specialist companies. Van Oord and boskalis, the same companies also “the world”(the world or the world islands is an archipelago of small artificial islands constructed in the shape of the world map, located in the water of Persian Gulf, 4.0 km off the coast of Dubai city, (UAE).

The recently opened destinations the Pointe, club vista mare, and the Nakheel Mall are the latest additions to the Palm Jumeirah Dubai (UAE).

Construction:

The Palm Jumeirah island construction began in June 2001 and the developers announced the handover of the first residential units in 2006.

 At this time 75% of the properties were ready to hand over, with 500 families already residing on this island by the end of 2009. 29 hotels were opened on the crescent.

The complexities of the construction were blamed. In the part for the extended delays to the completion of the project.

 The date of which was pushed back multiple times and was nearly 2 years late.

Housing density after launching the project, it was revealed that Nakheel increasing the number of residual units on the island (with the concomitant reduction in the amount of physical space between individual properties) from the originally announced 4,500 (comprising 2,000 villas purchased early in the expectation of greater separation between properties).

 This creation was attributed to Nakheel miscalculating the actual cost of construction & requiring the raising of the additional capital, although Nakheel has never commented publically on the matter.

 In 2009 the New York Times is reported that many people had bought houses before they were built and are furious about the space available now and the way they seem to be living on top of each other.

The water quality:

The water quality of the outer breakwater was designed as a continuous barrier. But by preventing the natural tidal movement, seawater within the palm became stagnant.

 The breakwater was subsequently modified to create gaps on either side. Allowing tidal movement to oxygenate the water within and prevent it from stagnating, albeit less efficiently than would be the case if the breakwater didn’t exist.

Transportation:

The Palm Jumeirah monorail is a 5-4 km –long (3.4mi) monorail connecting the Atlantis Hotel to the Gateway Towers all the foot of the island.

The monorail connects Palm Jumeirah to the mainland, with the planned further extension to the Red Line of Dubai Metro, the line began operating on 30 April 2009. It’s the first monorail in the Middle East.
