Brad and Angelina Buy The World
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly bought their own private island in Nhakeel’s “The World” project in Dubai. The celebrity couple has purchased one of the artificial islands with a view towards turning it into a showpiece for environmental issues with the hope that it will encourage people to live a “greener life,” the web site said.
The World will consist of between 250 to 300 smaller private artificial islands in the shape of a map of the world divided into four categories – private homes, estate homes, dream resorts and community islands. Each island will range from 250,000 to 900,000 square feet in size, with 50 to 100 metres of water between each island. The development is to cover an area of 9 kilometers in length and 6 kilometers in width, surrounded by an oval shaped breakwater. The only means of transportation between the islands will be by marine transport.
