Man made Island - need some oceanfront property???

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

 

this is a "megastructure" (seen it on TLC) that the country is about to run our of oil, so they were looking for ways for the country/city not to die.

  • Jumeirah - is almost finished houses and businesses...supposed to be done end of 2007
  • Jebel - started after sand was formed on the first
  • The World - is started
  • Deira - is slotted to start after Jebel is done
