The Palm Jumeirah, the world’s largest man-made island, is an artificial archipelago created using land reclamation by Nakheel, a company owned by the Dubai government in the United Arab Emirates and was completely designed and developed by HHCP architects.
As per Nakheel’s website the Palm Jumeirah is the first of three such islands that comprise ‘The Palm Trilogy’, Nakheel’s signature development and it will be followed by The Palm Jebel Ali and The Palm Deira.
The palm has seventeen fronds, named Al Fardh, Al Khalas, Al Hilali, Al Barhi, Buma’an, al Yabri, Al Shishi, Al Khanezi, Al Merziban, Al Anwan, Al Khisab, Al Fara, Al Sefri, Al Naghal, Al Safawi and Al Sullaj respectively.
In order to build a larger tourist base, Two F-100 Super Sabre fighter jets have been stripped and sunk near The Palm Jumeirah to create an artificial reef. This, according to tourism experts, is intended as an additional attraction for divers- who can explore the reef as it develops off the coast of the Palm.
