I assume you are talking about the area of sand that joins the trunk to the cresent.
That is where the tunnel runs joining the 2. The tunnel is finished but the land will stay for a while to allow better access to the cresent while a lot of the building work is done and will be removed later.

very cool but indeed real shame that they're so packed together, isn't worth the price if you ask me... i mean of course there is reasonable space in between the houses....yeah for a house of 300 to 400 grand, but for more than a million?? no way. unless you're talking about old townhouses in old city centers, but these are supposed to be beach villas.

Yeah, definetely too many houses, they could've lost every other property and had a nice strech of beach each, not enough privacy.

Yep, it does not look very attractive with all the villas so close together.

Hi, Thanks for the great update. The pictures give the impression that the tunnel is above sea level, was that meant to happen??
