Jumeira Palm Island, Dubai

Palm Island Jumeirah (Jumeira, Jumaira, Jumairah), Dubai

The Jumeirah Palm is the first of three man-made Palm Islands in Dubai constructed by property developer Nakheel (a subsidiary of the Dubai government owned Dubai World). The islands are entirely man-made and are connected to the coast by a main trunk, with mostly residential buildings on the fronds, and mixed use developments on the outer ring and on the trunk.

Palm Golden Mile

The Palm Golden Mile is a mixed use development which will be constructed on the trunk of the Jumeirah Palm Island. The intention is for it to be one of the more prestigious areas of Dubai (actually, it seems like every development in Dubai is making that claim) in which to live and shop with around 220 posh boutique stores, restaurants and cafes. Move over Starbucks and MacDonalds.

Joint venture partners are IFA Hotels & Resorts and Istithmar PJSC, with Al Shafar General Contracting Co LLC as the main contractor for the Palm Golden Mile project. Completion expected in early 2008.

Palm Island Jumeirah Monorail

Marubeni Corporation will build a 5.4 km, $390m (1.4 billion dhs) monorail on the Jumeirah Palm Island. It will be a driverless train using Hitachi technology and will connect the main trunk with the Dubai Metro on Sheikh Zayed Road. Expected completion date is December 2008. See Palm Jumeirah monorail for more (actual opening date was 30 April 2009).
