The government has constructed many of the world’s iconic structures which we need at least 20 hubs to discuss. Anyhow, we will concentrate on one vehement, mind blowing project that is The Palm which has become a symbol of Dubai’s incredible ambition and growth.
The Palm basically is a man-made archipelago which consists of 16 fronds in a shape of a date palm. The project commenced in 2001 and is still ongoing, and in the next 1-2 years will see the island become one of the world’s premier resorts. With 4,000 villas and apartments and more than 30 hotels including The Atlantis, more than 2,600 apartments along with 80 penthouses, The Palm has attracted buyers from the entire world.
