Dream Island to be Constructed in Azerbaijan for $2 bln

“Implementation of the project Dream Island envisaging construction of houses and offices, medical establishments, university, golf club is planned to commence in October 2008,” President of Azersun OJSC Abdolbari Goozal said ina press conference on 20 May. The project will be implemented within seven years.


A joint venture (50% of South Korea’s Kolon, 50% of Azersun) was established to implement the project. The official office of the JV will be located in Dubai and a branch will be opened in Baku.


About $2bln is expected to be spent for implementation of this project.


The complex is planned to be constructed in the Bina settlement located 20 km of Baku. The Dream Island will cover 300 hectares, which is presently unfit for construction. Bringing the area into the state of convenience requires $200mln, Goozal said. Foreign specialists will be involved into implementation of the project.


Azersun Holding started out back in 1991 to become a strong market leader position in the food production, retail and farming sectors throughout the country and region wide. The holding is operating in such fields as processing and packing of tea, vegetable oil, trade and distributorship, construction, banking, insurance, production of paperboard and paper products, canned meat and vegetables, transportation and storage, etc.

Olympic Bid

I agree. With number of interesting sport venues to be built in Baku in years to come our bid will be taken more seriously in the future.

And one more thing. Ever since Galandar's location has changed from NYC to Baku we see less activity on our thread. What's up man?

Her name is Natavan Khurshidbanu, considered one of the best lyrical poets of Azerbaijan. Daughter of Mehdi Gulu-khan, the last ruler of the Karabakh khanate. I think building with mobile phone is "Azerbaijan kinoteatri" which is cinema/movie theater.

TODAY in Baku - 26-June-2008

Here are some photos taken last evening, this morning, and around 1230 when Azerbaijan celebrated Army Navy day in Baku.

All photos are my own, taken by me. (Fuji 5000 camera)

Sunset last night




Sunrise this morning



Now the show!



Navy on Display in the harbor, all crew on deck in dress Whites!





Rolling stock on the Boulevard, but I was not at a good vantage point for those photos!



The Helicopter Swarm in formation!







Blackhawks? Cobras? Russian? Who knows for sure?











Pretty Cool, don't you think?

Very Proud Day in Baku!!


Who else took photos? I would like to see street level images from Azadlig Square, please!
