These are some rendering pictures







The video which is being published on TV.

You can see the area good on Google Earth,

These are the latest pics:



The billboards for the new tower, Korek building, its name comes from the cellphone network. The building will be the talles of Kurdistan and of all Iraq at completion.

Perhaps structures, architecture or such.

But really interesting, even though I think, it could be too ambitious? Perhaps?

Nope, it's still going.
Houses are built, people are living there, and Erbil LOVES this place!
I was there last month doing market research for a few proposed hotels.
What a safe place. Really great.

Compared to the poor living conditions in most of the overcrowded areas in Iraq's big cities, it probably is "a dream city".
