I think it will be cool to sleep in the lowest floors which are underwater... I guess it will need quite tough glass... and better some beautiful fishes swimming by...

I like the waterfall very much too. However I wonder after the water falls into the pit, how it gets out of it...

I'm not worried that the water will fill the pit, since like Mosaic said, it's just an irrigation canal...

Why earthquake? A plastic bag with dynamite does it too!

So they are actually going to build this? I think it would be incredibly original and well worth the money to have such a unique piece of architecture in such an unorthodox place for a building.

I really hope they build this, that would be awesome. I'm intrigued with this now...

You would think there would be a much larger parking facility than that one small 20-30 car slab of asphalt on the renderings, I mean look at the size of that hotel!!

Yeah that's true... I'm still not sure if this is actually going to be built, does anyone know for sure about the status of this project?
