Nakheel and his palms…|
...we want to bring light into the dark!
What do you think, when you hear the word “Dubai”? – “Dubai -This is where the palm is built into the sea, right?” Not familiar to everybody is the fact, that it’s not only one palm which belongs to Nakheel´s projects. Meanwhile there exist three spectacular palm projects. Therefore we want to give you a closer look on each of the three projects.
The Palm Jumeirah is the pioneer project of the three palm islands and is used to be called the 8th world wonder. One hundred Mill. m³ of stones and sand have been moved to create this artificial island. In the meantime the first mansions and villas on the palm assuming a definite shape, which will be finished in the near future. The island is located very central between Ali Free Zone and Dubai City and offers an ideal traffic connection. In spite of its central location the Palm Jumeirah will be a place of silence and recreation on the highest lifestyle level. The sale of real estate objects started in January 2003. Within three weeks the whole project was completely sold out. In 2010 experts are forecasting that about 40 luxury hotels should annually attract millions of tourists from all over the world.
Palm Jebel Ali
In comparison to the other palm projects Palm Jebel Ali is the mid-sized palm. In particular the trunk and the crescent differ from the Jumeirah Palm project. Here are primarily touristic facilities as e.g. a recreational park with a giant swimming pool area intended to be built. A decent housing space is required because of the close neighbourhood to Jebel Ali Free Zone. Therefore a lot of apartments are planned to be built, located on a new applied ring around the palm. The exclusive singular Water Homes which should be built on stakes and having their own boat landing stage are characteristically for this project. In the near future you can find those buildings between the palm and the outside ring. Obviously the second palm island is already sold out. This fact approves the expectations of the investors with the result that the number of the prospective customers raises from day to day.
The recent project of Nakheel is the largest of the three palms- the Palm Deira. With a length of approximately 14 km and altogether 80 km² the third palm is about three times longer than the first palm and larger than Manhattan. This enormous project with 41 palm leafs is planned to be built just in front of the old center of Dubai, more precisely, it is located in the district Deira which you can find in the East of Dubai Creek. To give you a general idea of this giant project and its dimensions here is a simple example: the size of one palm leaf differs from 850m till 3.400m. Beside mansions, semi-detached and terraced houses you can also find hotels, shopping centres, sport parks and many other leisure offers on the Palm Deira. The construction of the third palm has started; the first real estate areas have already been sold.
If you scroll down to the end of this site you can see some pictures which are documenting the progress of the constructions from different perspectives. The measurements of the two palm projects Jumeirah and Jebel Ali are so gigantic that even astronauts can see the shape of the palms with the naked eye from outer space. Jumeirah Palm is supposed to be finished in 2006; on Palm Jebel Ali the first mansions should be occupied on schedule in 2007. The asset completion of Palm Deira is planned in 2009.
There are a lot of varieties concerning the real estate homes. Starting with normal apartments and different types of mansions up to Garden Homes and Water Homes which are built on stakes in the sea. If you have a soft spot for luxurious and absolutely unusual real estate you should buy a real estate on one of the palms.
