During the construction of the Palm Jumeirah, it was announced by executive developers to complete and hand over some of the island’s residential areas by the end of 2006. After that, by the end of 2007, many families started living on the island. By the end of 2009, the construction of hotels and restaurants on the entire island was over.

The construction of the entire Palm Islands limits the size of 120 km from the sea level by the Palm Jumeirah Island out of a total of 520 km. Almost, all types of facilities have been made available on the Jumeirah coastal area and it is being further developed.

The entire project was provided with 6 years of preparation time, due to which a number of complex difficulties caused its construction to be delayed by about two years.

In the construction of the entire project, the executive engineers and the companies had to face many kinds of difficulties. The most important task in the construction of the entire project was to create an underground site for which a large amount of Persian sand was used.

About 11 breakwater bridges have been built to connect the whole island with each other and the city of Dubai.

A few months after the complete construction of Palm Island, a report was given by NASA in 2009 which told about the geographical location of Palm Island.

In which it was presented that “On measuring the island of Palm Island with a laser altimeter satellite, it was found that the sea pressure would see a danger of submergence of about 0.2 inches of the island’s land every year.”

In response, Nakheel stated that “a structurally prepared report said that no such problem should be seen and that the resolution of laser satellites could be possible only by inches.


To connect the Palm Jumeirah to the city of Dubai, a variety of modes of transport such as the Palm Jumeirah Monorail, Dubai Metro, trams and buses can be seen, but some modes of transport such as the Dubai Metro and tram cannot be used to connect the Palm Jumeirah to Dubai. Dubai Metro and trams facilities are only for the nearest stations to Palm Jumeirah. Palm serves as a major network connecting Jumeirah to the city of Dubai.
