Dubai Islands - Infrastructural Developments – The Palm Jumeirah

Dubai Islands - Infrastructural Developments – The Palm Jumeirah

The Palm Jumeirah
is often promoted as a prime property destination for luxury residences and commercial towers, but the foundation of it all is in the elaborate infrastructure, which is rarely discussed. Since the development is located approximately four kilometres away from the main land, there's a lot of advanced infrastructural work done to provide the ultra luxurious facilities offered at the Palm Jumeirah.

IGY Anchor Marina
The main marina for access into the Palm Jumeirah island has the capacity for 700 or more yachts and megayacht docking. The high standard facility also provides retail, dining, clubhouse and special events venues, along with beautiful sea views and modern berthing services. Managed by th Island Global Yatching (IGY) company, the Palm Jumeirah's Anchor Marina will have two complementary marinas located on either side of the island's Trunk.

The Monorail is developed with the aim of providing convenient accessibility to the Palm Jumeirah island's various sites and attractions. Starting from the Gateway Station located on the Trunk and extending to the Atlantis Station on the Crescent, the Monorail is a 5.4 kilometre transport system. The rail tracks will pass through the island's Trunk, Fronds and Crescent, with intermittent stops at the Trump International Hotel & Tower and the Luxury Retail Centre.

The Park
Flanking the sides of the iconic Trump International Hotel & Tower, a 7-hectare recreational park will be the centrepiece of Palm Jumeirah's attractions.

Sub-Sea Tunnel
The Sub-Sea Tunnel is a 1.4 kilometre long, 6-lane underwater tunnel. Built as the chief transportation connection between the main Palm Jumeirah section and the circumferential Crescent, the Sub-Sea Tunnel accommodates 3 lanes per traffic direction and is equipped with service/emergency cell as well.

Logo Islands
Besides the main Palm Jumeirah development, there are two identical artificial islands measuring 4.9 million cubic feet built in the shape of The Palm trademark logo (a liberal palm leaf design) located on either side of the Trunk. These two islands are personally owned by the Vice President & Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
