New developments in Dubai with Palm Deira in the upper right corner

Deira Island is a group of artificial islands in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The project was initially planned to be part of the Palm Islands and was called Palm Deira.

Overview[edit]

By early October 2007, 20% of the initial palm island's reclamation was complete, with a total of 200 million cubic metres (7 billion cubic feet) of sand already used. Then in early April 2008, Nakheel announced that more than a quarter of the total area of the Palm Deira had been reclaimed.[1]

Since 2008 the project was on-hold.[2][3]
