Palm Deira
After property on the original Palm sold out quickly and shot up in value, more Palms were probably inevitable.

While Palm Jebel Ali was designed to outdo the original Jumeirah Palm in terms of size, Palm Deira was something else altogether. It was designed to cover 42.7km², extend 12.5km into the sea and be 7 km wide.

It would have featured 75 km of beachfront and 185 km of waterfront, with 43 marinas consisting of 8142 berths. Three bridges, with 12 lanes each, would provide access to the island.

Reclamation work on the island was due to finish in 2012, but is currently on hold.
