How can anyone even consider that this is real is beyond me.
Have you watched the video on the website?
It's just taking the piss, I mean, come on! "The world's first giraffe only zoo" and "Coastal areas may be prone to flooding during the rainy season (All Year)"

I am pretty sure that they will face a lot of obstacles such as the rising sea level.

Definitely a bullshit project. Probably just some guy ripping the piss out of Dubai by suggesting a project like this be built in a place where such a big development would be least likely to happen anywhere in the world.


But apparantly this guy even tried to get planning permission


Dublin City Council - Planning Permission is sought by Dublin Coastal Development, Ltd. to reclaim 300 hectares of coastal waters for construction of three islands zoned as urban/suburban including 4 mile dual carraigeway, 1 mile viaduct, aerodrome, 4 mile railway line, 180 square metre railway station, 42,000 3, 4 and 5 bed appartments and villas, three playgrounds, one zoo, 72 multi-story office blocks with car-parks, three 120 berth marinas, roundabouts, two multi-story shopping malls, 200 retail units, 75 restaurants, two multi-screen cinemas, three theatres, 28 licensed premises, two schools, 23 casinos, seven hotels, 30 hectarea of green belt, three 18 hole gofl courses.
