I like the new design of the airport. Good job Tunisia! Besides, does the crisis impact the construction sector in Tunisia?

UPDATES TAPARURA PROJECT SFAX :



Parque EXPO is elaborating the strategic plan in the important Sfax zone, the second largest city in Tunisia. The objective of this important urban recovery and environmental valuation project is to promote the reconciliation of the city with the Mediterranean.



The Sfax region represents the most important industrial and commercial pole in the South of the country. This represents a burdensome inheritance that includes an enormous phosphate dumpsite that occupies close to 90 ha, close to the centre of the city.

The closure of this dumpsite containing pollutants from the local industry is the key to the creation of a new urban area. Once the project has been implemented, this area will constitute a new sea front area on the north coast of Sfax. Thus, similarly to that which occurred ten years ago during the recovery of eastern zone of Lisbon, the project foresees the transformation of a degraded zone with industrial pollutant residues into a new urban area.



This project – known as Taparura – will be performed in two phases. The first phase will include the clean up of the intervention zone and of the land gains near the sea. It will include a total of 420 hectares and will include the rehabilitation of the beaches. The second phase will include the organisation of the intervention zone in order to permit the widening of the urban agglomeration and the creation of a multifunctional pole – habitation, recreation, tourism, commerce and services – which will be framed by the important and recovered green spaces and public facilities.



The Strategic Plan, developed in collaboration with the multinational company DHV, will include the definition of the legal and organisational, functional and financial models, as well as the commercialisation and marketing strategy for the territory.


Parque EXPO has strengthened their international standing with this new project and has consolidated the recognition of their know how of urban recovery and environmental operations beyond the border

TUNIS FINANCIAL HARBOR : UPDATES


• Tunis Financial Harbour master plan unveiled
• Infrastructure work to commence in 2009

Manama, Bahrain, Tuesday 9th June, 2009: His Excellency Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, President of Tunisia laid the foundation stone for North Africa’s first offshore financial center at a ceremony held today. Situated in Tunis Bay, Tunis Financial Harbour (TFH) is the brainchild of leading Middle Eastern Islamic investment bank Gulf Finance House (GFH) and will play host to some of the world’s leading names in finance, advisory and support services at a strategic crossroads between the European, North African and Middle Eastern markets.

During the ceremony, the finalized project master plan was unveiled, heralding the start of a contractor tendering process and the commencement of infrastructure work planned for the end of 2009. TFH is the second in a series of offshore financial centres originated by GFH and was conceived in close partnership with the state of Tunisia, who in recent months took significant steps and initiatives to pave the way for the initiative, including attractive tax, regulatory and foreign exchange incentives to prospective commercial residents from the world’s financial community. Furthermore, laws regulating offshore banks and financial institutions in relation to the Tunis Financial Harbour were revised after being passed on to the Cabinet under the supervision of the President on Wednesday 10th June.

Esam Janahi, Chairman of GFH added, “This morning’s ceremony which took place under the patronage of His Excellency President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, represents a significant milestone in the realization of a first for North Africa’s financial infrastructure. Tunisia is undoubtedly one of the region’s most competitive and exciting economies enjoying sustained stability and a strong record of GDP growth, a prosperous industrial sector, a diversified services sector, modern infrastructure and skilled human capital. Given its strategic geographic location, TFH offers tremendous opportunity for the international financial community. The long-term benefits to the Tunisian and regional economies will be numerous and far-reaching and we are delighted to partner with the Tunisian Government on this pioneering initiative.”

TFH will comprise four distinct business clusters including investment banking and advisory centre, a corporate centre, a Takaful/ insurance hub and the regions first international financial exchange. Alongside these functions, an international business school will be built to equip tomorrow’s graduates with the skills demanded by leading players from the international finance and support services community. Tunis Financial Harbour is expected to generate over 16,000 jobs, most of which will be for highly skilled workers.

Located just north of Gammarth, TFH will populate an area of around 520 hectares approximately ten minutes away from the most affluent areas in Tunis including La Marsa and Carthage. To complement the commercial aspects of the initiative, a variety of residential and leisure facilities including the marina, a residential complex with luxurious villas and an 18 hole championship golf course are included in the master plan.

European Solar Power From African Deserts!



A German consortium is hoping to drum up support for the idea of harvesting solar power from the deserts of North Africa and transmitting it to Europe.
Germany has become a global leader in solar energy by building up a substantial industry at home. Can the country now repeat the feat in North Africa?

Munich Re, an insurance company, is leading efforts to garner support for a vast project, dubbed Desertec, to collect energy at solar farms in countries like Tunisia and then send it to Europe in the form of electricity. Munich Re wants other companies like the giant engineering group Siemens, Deutsche Bank, and utilities like RWE and E.ON to become involved.

Under the plan, energy would be gathered mostly using concentrating solar power, a technology that uses mirrors to harness rays from the sun to produce steam and drive turbines that make electricity. The power would then be delivered to Europe through high-voltage direct current (HVDC) cables.

The converter stations to operate these cables are generally more expensive than the stations associated with alternating current cables, but HVDC cables are far better at conserving power over long distances.


The project could turn out to be one of the largest clean power initiatives in the world, providing 15 percent of Europe’s energy needs. But some commentators questioned the wisdom of putting renewable energy hubs in a potentially unstable part of the world, while German media appeared divided on the virtues of the project.

According to Spiegel Online, Die Welt, a conservative daily, took a positive view, writing that power from desert solar plants would turn out to be cheaper than power from solar panels installed on German roofs. Handelsblatt, a business daily, was also favorable, writing that subsidies to the desert project “would, for once, make sense.”

But the left-leaning daily newspaper Die Tageszeitung warned that a new focus on building a solar hub in Africa could become an excuse for the government to ease back on support for domestic solar projects, which it said “would be a disaster.”

STUNNING POSTS !!!

Tunisia is BOOOMING...


Golf And Skyscrapers Come To Tunis.

Published on 13-07-2009 by Skyscrapernews.com

Groundwork is underway on what could be the world's first city dedicated purely to sport and the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle for all its residents and visitors.

Named Tunis Sports City the project will be located in Tunisia and will in fact be a city within a city, the master plan comes from the drawing boards of Spanish based architectural firm Diseno Earle.

The project will be built in several phases the first of which will be named Cedar village and will consist of 50 villas, 13 blocks of low rise townhouses and apartments and 11 eighteen storey residential towers all of which will have views of the 18 hole PGA approved golf course.

Residents and visitors will also be able to make use of a top notch club house offering tennis courts, billiards room, a top class gymnasium and spa with indoor and outdoor spaces for treatments along with other exciting amenities.

There will also be a golfing academy for all the wannabe Tiger Woods of the world, many restaurants and cafes, the all important shopping spaces which unfortunately due to the theme of the area will probably only offer space for golfing shoes, but you cant have everything perfect.

The design of the towers and villas are inspired by traditional Islamic designs but still manage to add a modern look to the Tunisian skyline. Mostly square in shape the towers feature glazed facades with geometric patterning, many with large balconies which provide extra social spaces as well as adding shading to the towers.

A few towers break from the traditional shape and go for a more rounded look adding focal points to the project and breaks up the square theme somewhat. All the apartments and rooms will be finished to a luxury standard and offer amenities such as spas and gyms along with child friendly play spaces and childcare to residents, all designed to promote the projects healthy living theme.

The other phases of the project will see sporting academies open to residents and international visitors where top class coaches will be teaching future champions and many other sporting based facilities will feature throughout along with more villas and towers.

Covering a whopping 256 hectares and carrying a hefty price tag of $3.5 billion USD the project is hoped to begin construction in earnest in 2010 although there are no completion times available as yet so it may be a while before you take a round at the 19th hole.
