Very interesting and unique. It fits quite well with the site and will be an impressive vision for the rail passengers that pass through it.

I know, I never thought that Dubai will ever get any kind of a skyscraper either, but this post proves us wrong, doesn't it?

WOW!! This is one of the coolest designs I have ever seen!!! This building kicks ASS!!! Why can't us Americans get something that looks this cool (other then Spire)?? Damn trump! Hope the Spire kicks his building out Chicago, and steals all his residents! Maybe this is why Trump is going over sea's, he cannot take the publicity the Spire is getting? The world may never know what is going on under all that hair?

light rail, not a monorail to nowhere, oh sorry by nowhere i meant from the entrance of the "theme park" to the single family homes at the back...this monorail is completely useless, its a just a people mover, they should have built it to connect with the under-construction Dubai Metro, like this is completely useless, dubai is an amazing city, too bad its so transit-unfriendly.

How the hell is this monorail useless? There's going to be a shitload of hotels on this island and those tourists need to get around. Also it will be connected to the main under construction metro, where did you hear otherwise?
What does this mean?
"this monorail is completely useless, its a just a people mover"
Isn't this what all public transport does?

Light rail and people mover are quite different.
This monorail won't be connected to Dubai's initial 2 Metro lines.
It's capacity is no more than 5,000ppd/h.
It only serves hotels and a residential area, not connecting any residents with the central business district or any office developments in the city. I doubt many Dubai residents have the need to take a monorail to a hotel.

Wait a second. Light rail is a people mover, if you think otherwise please explain how.
The monorail IS connected to the main metro, the red line.
I've no idea about the capacity.
Yes it does connect residents with the city, they ride the monorail, hop off at the connecting station, get onto the train and off into town.

^^ What the hell are you about. Very clearly is being said to you by Dubai residents and (very informed) enthusiasts what's going on, and you still still insist to pass as facts things that first pass your mind in the morning.

The Palm Monorail will start on the Nakheel Station of the Dubai Metro Red Line that is located in front of Emirates Golf Club (where GPA Tournaments takes place every year) and opposite American University Of Dubai (AUD) as well as Dubai Internet City (DIC). From the station to the entrance of the Palm Jumeirah is a travel distance of 3 miles approx (maybe more).

Second Station will be at the Gateway Towers (u/C), located as the name suggest, to the gateway to the Palm.

Third Station will be to Trump International Hotel tower, halfway into the trunk of the Palm.

Fourth Station will be at the end of the trunk, near marina Residence and Plazza.

Fifth and last station it will be on ATLANTIS Hotel & Resorts, a 1600 rooms mega hotel resort development. To reach there, the tracks will go over water.

Now you know what to do ... pppfffhhh
