I stumbled across this picture on one of NASA’s websites featuring pictures taken by the crew of the International Space Station. This picture of the The Palm, Jumeirah was taken in April 2005 and shows the smallest of three Palm Islands being built in Dubai. The first homeowners will get to move into their houses and apartments in late 2006. Click the image above for a higher resolution version.
Here is another picture that gives another perspective on the construction of Palm Jumeirah as seen from Le Rêve Dubai, an incredible 50-floor luxury apartment building under construction in Dubai Marina. This picture was taken by my friend Andy Lemon in June of this year.
