First The World, now The Universe

Master developer Nakheel has just announced another monster development offshore. Called The Universe it will be a cluster of islands designed on the shape of coral and will stretch from Palm Jumeirah to Port Rashid, running between The World and the mainland. When finished in 15 to 20 years it will be 3,000 hectares (about 6,500 acres) of land. Major residential, commercial and tourism projects are eventually planned for the development.

    I wonder why they can’t concentrate on finishing all the current work in progress. It’s all more more more..bigger bigger bigger…

    I was in Dubai the week just before the floods and was surprised that still so little is completed yet..

    Well, it’s just that different developers are working on different projects at the same time. It’s almost all on what was empty desert – or water! – so there’s no reason not to do it all at the same time.
