Through the vision of H.H General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Defense Minister, Nakheel is creating the most exclusive property development ever, The World.With The Palm, Nakheel puts Dubai on The Map. Now with The World, Nakheel puts the map on Dubai. The World consists of over 300 man made islands strategically positioned to form the shape of the world map, lying 4km off the coast of Dubai. The World will be the most exclusive and sought after community offering the most exciting residential and leisure opportunities in the fastest growing tourist destination on the planet. This is the ultimate destination where the only limit is your imagination.
|Almost two years of extensive planning, research development and design took place before The World was announced to an astonished real estate industry. Measuring approximately 9 km in width by 7 km in length, the development will cover approximately 9,340,000 square meters, will be visible to the naked eye from space and will add an additional 232 kilometers of beachfront to Dubai’s coastline. For The World to take shape, Nakheel is moving over 326 million cubic meters of sand to form the islands as well as building a 26 kilometer long oval shape breakwater.This is arguably the most exciting, innovative and visually stimulating real estate development ever. In a land of modern city and timeless desert, old world charm and new world comfort, where East meets West in a kaleidoscope of contrasts, and villas and hotels sit on Palm trees stretching out into the Gulf, we are witnessing the birth of a new wonder – The World. An engineering marvel not seen since Venice, The World will never be replicated again.|
