Holy Moley Batman, There’s a Giant Mall growing on the Palm

I think it may be a boy thing, but I confess a large part of my childhood was spent digging holes, interspersed with a bit of tunneling, and occasionally shoring up a mountain – usually to dig through. Someone with a lot more resources that I as a five year old, or even as a 45 year old, clearly still likes a bit of tunneling, hole and mountain building on a weekend.

Witness, in all its considerably glory, the Palm Mall hole on the 30th March of this year….

Witness it as of last night (23rd October).

For the first time a small section now pokes its small head out from above ground level. I am sure someone, somewhere in Nakheel did a small dance at this point. I know, for a reason I cannot understand, I wanted to.

This theoretically is what it will end up looking like – although as we all know, never, ever believe a 3D rendering.
