The collapse of Dubais property market in late-2008 has put the emirate's real estate industry under the spotlight. House prices plunged more than 60 percent and billions of dollars worth of developments were scrapped or put on hold in the wake of the financial crisis.

Dubais real estate watchdog, RERA, said in March it was reviewing the financial viability of about 90,000 properties due to be delivered over the next five years, and its website features a series on status reports on construction projects.

The reports were produced by independent company Screampoint Property Observer, and each is connected to a detailed overview and photographs showing worksite progress on RERA's own website.

Listed below are those projects RERA says are on hold. The list contains almost 300 projects, in various stages on construction on which work has stopped.

The listings include details of the name of the project, the name of the developer and the master-developer behind the site.

Of those listed, Nakheel is the master developer behind 107 projects. Dubai Properties has 42 projects that are on hold within its developments, while Dubai Silicon Oasis and Limitless both have nine.
