Although it is an inshallah project but still a nice render, if this is built in a place like Basra, it can be the new icon for the city.

I don't understand. Why are such projects hard to realise in Iraq ?
it is not impossible to be done , but usually it doesn't go through because of the many problems iraq has.

1. no proper banks to fund such projects

2. too risky for the investor to spend that much money in an unsafe country, specially when every while some guy from the parliament say that they wanna make a new government... etc

3. there are no proper contractor and sub contractors to make such projects come true

4. no proper electricity

5. corruption

6. no guarantees

7. many iraqi business men who have that much money got used to live outside iraq and they think that iraq is hopless and they don't want to come back.

it could happen , but it needs some time , when it get easier for investors, we might see dozens of these projects being built in iraq at the same time

This in Kuwait, an area also called Al-Mansour. It's also an old proposal.
