Facts About Palm Jebel Ali Masterplan Revealed


With the Palm Jebel Ali project having been revived after 15 years of being dormant, many of us are wondering how the new palm will shape up.

The Palm Jebel Ali was dredged in 2002 before construction stopped in 2008. Twice the size of Palm Jumeirah, the island has been dormant since, with reports circulating last year that Nakheel would be resuming the project and changing its name.

While images of the original plans might give some idea of how the project might look when it’s completed, more details have been shared by the Dubai Media Office team on Twitter.
