Someone mentioned this hotel on the sports city phase 2 development.

its a 5 star hotel, being built by an indian company http://www.shapoorji.in/ inside the presidential compound in Basra... it shares its name with the old shatt al arab hotel which is derelict nowadays.

This looks fucking good!!!!!

I checked out this 'shapoorji pallonji' company.. they seem pretty reliable.

Really hope this actually gets built!

its in Saraji, a tourism kind of area. Far from City center.

Few months ago I cam across a render for a project to turn the presidential palaces to the new water front for Basra, as they have a great location on Shatt Al Arab.

Because of the dispute between the local govt. of Basra and the PM office which wants to turn the place to some LODGES for higher ranked military and political personnel killing the investment plans in the area. Yes, Baghdad knows better....

Ahh ok that's really good I'm glad its in some sort of touristic area.. I was afraid it was going be in some isolated desert area..

What happened to this though? http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1327151

I heard in the news a few weeks ago that the Basrah governer gave orders for companies to work longer shifts in order to speed up the construction, so i expect the new projects in Basrah to go up pretty quickly unlike before if the companies actually do start working two or three shifts rather than one shift.

Basra is rubbish, old and the current environment is unacceptable. I think this is all due to this useless governor ? What's your opinion guys ? I mean Basras budget is huge since it will have $1 per barrel exported from it..
