Have you guys seen this place It is gonna be sweet when its done (not an advertisement)..







The Palm Islands, also referred to as The Palm, are the world's two largest man-made islands, which are being built on the cost of the emirate of Dubai, in the UAE (United Arab Emirates). The idea was first announced in May 2002 and the two freehold palm tree-shaped resort islands are expected to maintain Dubai's position as a premium tourist destination. The project is being handled by Al Nakheel Properties, which will increase Dubai's shoreline by 120km and create a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment areas. The Palm Islands has also be named 'The Eighth Wonder of the World'.

Wow, that's pretty neat. I hope they account for tides and what-not looking at some of the structure designs.

I remember reading about this in a supplemental pamphlet the UAE put into the NY times. Pretty amazing stuff. I believe there was also plans to have one that when viewed from above would look like the whole globe. Creative people...

That was the only real mention I could find of that project. Wish i hadn't thrown out the ad.

It's being developed by a company called Nakheel.

Edited to add this picture i found online of it.
