Dubai's reputation as a property hot spot has been secure for the last six years with the construction boom to match, fueled by an increase in tourism in the south of Asia and investment in overseas property in Dubai boasting some of the most ambitious projects including the famous Dubai Palm Island the self declared 'eighth wonder of the world.' Prospective owners of property on the Palm Island are buying a unique piece of history as well as a holiday home.
The Palm Islands (Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira) will add a total of 520 kilometers to the shoreline which nearly doubles this lucrative area for Dubai. The Palm Jumeirah alone boasts 30 beach front hotels due to open by the end of 2009. The available property will include three main types of property including canal cove town homes, signature villas and garden homes which will be complemented by a series of community bars, cafes, retail outlets, sports and spa facilities.
The finished development is set to dazzle and amaze prospective owners almost as much as the construction itself, and it will employ 40,000 workers, most of them from south Asia itself which has no doubt had a positive impact on the local population. The island was created using sand to build up the area before construction, a mega 95 million cubic meters of sand and 7 million tons of rock. Dubai's national import of cement increased by over 70% during 2007 to accommodate the construction of the world's largest cement canals as part of the Palm Island project.
A development of this size is not without it's environmental impact, the relocation of much wildlife in the artificial reef's off the Palm Jumeirah has maintained the local ecosystem as well as encouraging new marine life within the area giving property owners much of the original natural wildlife attractions of the Dubai coastline. Unfortunately the impact of the continuous barrier surrounding the Palm has disturbed the natural flow of tidal waves causing the water within the Palm to become stagnated measures have been taken to create movement and oxygenation within the Palm have been taken.
The Palm Island Project itself has run into many unforeseen situations such as the breakwater displacing the tidal flow, this is one of the things blamed for the ongoing setbacks in construction and seems to be around two years later than planned. Another main factor has been the increase in the number of properties on each of the Island. The original plans have doubled in the number of individual properties available, which has lead to fears that construction will be damaged by the increase in use especially at the entry and exit points. The decrease in individual property living space will undoubtedly have an effect on any resale value, of property on the Palm Island and investors who bought from the original plans have never been compensated for the increase in properties available but even with this set back any long term investment made on Palm Island will give a sound return due to its unique and extravagant location.
