These are some of the developments which were scheduled for construction on various islands of The World in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. However the construction was halted due to the Financial crisis of 2007–2010, except for one island owned by the ruler of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.[1]

Islands on The World were intended to fall into several categories:

  • Low Density: Residential islands
  • Medium and High Density: Residential areas.
  • Resorts: Mainly hotels and resorts.
  • Commercial: Shopping, entertainment, restaurants, cafes
  • Transportation: Hubs for transportation through boats to mainland Dubai.[2]
