Nakheel's The World, Dubai

To celebrate four years since its launch, Dubai, United Arab Emirates-based developer Nakheel has released a "never seen before" satellite image of its US$ 20 billion The World development.

Land reclamation on the "epic development" is now complete, said the developer in a statement on its website, adding the image is a "snapshot for the history books."

Measuring 9 km wide and 7 km long, the project is located 4 km offshore from Dubai. The mixed-use private and commercial island development of 300 islands adds over 232 km of new beachfront to Dubai's coastline.
