About the Palm Jumeirah
The tree-shaped island with luxury hotels, tall buildings and luxurious restaurants deservedly attracts the attention of investors. From the embankment, you can enjoy a view of the Dubai coastline and the Burj Al Arab Hotel. The first and most compact of all (and there are three) man-made islands that make up the shape of a Palm Tree.
"The eighth wonder of the world", built by human hands and visible even from space.
When the Palm Jumeirah was built, the construction of the Palm Jumeirah started in 2001. The developer – Nakhil-is an Arab construction organization. The name " Nakheel "is translated from Arabic as" palm tree ". The world's first artificial island appeared in the Persian Gulf in 2 years. A few years later, 4,500 hotels, buildings and shopping centers were built on the island. The process was not hindered by two strong earthquakes that occurred near the construction site with a tremor force of about 6 points.The artificial island has affected the coastline of the mainland: the movements of the waves have changed and there is a real danger that it will be eroded, so the creators of the island monitor this process regularly.
At the end of 2006, the territory of the artificial island was prepared for successive transfer for the construction of housing and commercial facilities, as well as for settlement.
The island is built of natural materials-sand and stones, not reinforced concrete structures.
Initially, the coastline in Dubai was 72 km, and after the appearance of the island it grew to 1500 km.
