Information About Palm Deira
The Palm Deira is the largest of the three Palm Islands (Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira). It is located on the Deirah coastal area of the emirate of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The unique man-made palm-shaped island will consist of a trunk, a crown with 41 fronds, and a surrounding crescent island that will form a water-breaker.
The Palm Deira was announced for development in October 2004. No timetable for completion has been announced. The first announced design was 8 times larger than the Palm Jumeirah, and 5 times larger than the Palm Jebel Ali, and was intended to house one million people. Originally, the design called for a 14 km (8.7 mile) by 8.5 km (5.3 mile) island with 41 fronds. Due to a substantial change in depth in the Persian Gulf the farther out the island goes, the island was redesigned in May 2007. The project then became a 12.5 km (7.76 mile) by 7.5 km (4.66 mile) island with 18 larger fronds. It will be located alongside Deira.
Palm Deira consist of residential property, marinas, shopping malls, sports facilities, and clubs. The residential area will be located on the fronds and will contain 8,000 two-storey town houses in three distinct styles - Premier Villas, Grand Villas and Vista Town Homes.
Palm Deira will offer residents a truly international feel in a modern world class city. A natural extension of the bustling and vibrant atmosphere of Deira, it will create a stunning island lifestyle. It's where the old heart of Dubai, with its culture and tradition meets the modern, stunning future of the city. With its mixture of prestigious villas and townhouses and amenities such as marinas, parks and beaches it will mark a new era in city living.
