First, the place already multi-cultural due to homeowners of varied nationalities.

This means that the region will not have a homogenous culture or social life. Such a mixture will lead to the emergence of a new way of life. This is also worsened by the fact that the is a tourist destination hence varied cultures and social way of life will be experienced in the place.
The effect will be great given the small area coverage of the island which encourages close interaction. Jumeirah Palm island really deserves to be called the ‘ Eighth Wonder of the World' due to its attention catching design as well as its fascinating marine surrounding. Though small, the area has a good potential of growing to a rich, self-sustaining tourist destination, commercial center, and residential area. Despite its beauty and potentialities, research to be done regarding pollution from industrial and residential emissions and the effects of tourism on its environment and gulf as a whole.
