Palm Jumeirah beach has been the prime symbol of ever exciting city of Dubai. The way it’s designed sets high very high standards for the world architectures. In order to further beautify the palm-shaped island, Nakheel, one of the top Dubai developer will restart work on part of one of the three palm-shaped islands that came to symbolize the excesses of the emirate’s boom years, the company chairman said, in a sign Dubai is bouncing back from its financial crisis.
Chairman Ali Rashid Lootah told reporters that Nakheel, which was taken over by the government as part of a $16 billion rescue plan completed in 2011, will change the man made island group’s name to Deira Island from Palm Deira.
Deira Island will have about 1,400 retail units and restaurants including a night market, plus a 250-room hotel, a 30,000 capacity amphitheater and other attractions.
A company-supplied photo of the revamped project does not show any of the palm fronds that defined the original project’s shape, indicating it will be significantly smaller than Palm Deira was envisaged.
It would be an exciting addition for the tourists as well as citizens of Dubai. The palm-shaped island is one of its kind and is liked and praised for its uniqueness in the world.
