Seeming trying to prove that too much is not nearly enough the Dubai developer of “The World” has just announced plans to build the “The Universe” which they will squeeze in between “The World” and Dudai's increasingly crowded coast.

“The Universe” will occupy 3,000 hectares of land and will take 15 to 20 years to develop.

Implications - The decision to build this new project came only a week after World Islands was completed. Despite the ambitious plan, concerns have been raised about building 'The Universe.' For one, the residents of World Islands are worried about their ability to access the private island from the coast. There's also the environmental factor in which coral may be destroyed and the "change in waterways may erode nearby beaches," which are tourist spots according to GulfNews.com.
