The construction process of Palm Jumeirah commenced in June 2001 and was nearing completion by October 2007. It was also well on its way to garnering fame for being the largest man-made island in the world!


The first ever monorail in the Middle East was the Pam Jumeriah Mono-Rail which connects the island to the mainland with a 5.4-kilometre-long stretch which began operations in April 2009.

By 2006 many of the residential units were nearing completion and by 2007, around 75% of the properties were ready to be moved into. By the end of the year, more than 500 families were already residing on the island!
