There are four categories of islands available - private homes, estate homes, dream resorts and community islands. Each island will range from 250,000 to 900,000 square feet in size, 130 to 260 feet of water between each island. The World will have a total size of 5.4 miles in width and 3.6 miles in length. You can reach your island only by boat or helicopter.

The WorldThe purchasing price of an island is an estimated average of 25 million dollars. This Dubai mega-project is expected to be completed in 2008. The construction of The World has already begun and can be seen on Google Earth.

The World was inspired by the also man-made The Palm islands in Dubai. The World is located 2.5 miles off the shore of Jumeirah between the Jumeirah Palm island and the Deira Palm island.
