According to the website: http://test.alomsziget.grimlab.hu construction of Álomsziget (Dream Island) begins in 2007 on 32 hectares of the southern part of Hajógyári-sziget (an island in Budapest). The investment’s budget is roughly 400 billion forints and an additional 15 billion forints will be spent on infrustructural developements in the vicinity.
The project’s area is only 22% of the whole island. The plans contain sport, cultural and entertainment facilities, health center, an international ship-port on the outside bank, a variety of catering facilities, exhibition rooms, conference center, 3 to 5 star hotels, hotel apartman houses and supplementary commercial units.

The island before construction:



and the island after construction:




here are some concept art pics:











By the way I'm new in this forum so a big Hello from me!

400 billion Forints is an estimated 1.6 billion Euros...

BTW: LÉGY ÜDVÖZÖLVE PETI!!! Jó látni még egy magyart a fórumon! Igaz, ma már ketten is vagytok (BA)... Ha lapozol egyet (vagy kettőt), láthatod, hogy milyen magyar illetőségű thread-eket indítottunk, ha gondolod azokhoz is hozzá szólhatsz. Sajnos a cseh és szlovák kollégák sokkal aktívabbak ezen a téren, mint mi magyarok. Igaz többen is vannak! A legjobbakat!

Szia! Már olvasgattam a Budapestes threadeket és nagyon tetszik a fórum. Jó tudni, hogy rajtam kívül is érdeklődnek a hasonló témák iránt. Remélem több magyar is jön majd és akkor lekőrözzük a cseheket meg a szlovákokat. Megpróbálok aktív maradni, hogy segítsek nektek :) .

The developers didn't buy the whole island, just the southern part, where the shipyards are (they are mostly derelict and in bad condition so the government wanted to get rid of them). The other part of the island is still in the hands of the state.

Ummm. For that second question I need to look up wikipedia :lol:

But there are 3 major islands: Csepel Island, Margaret Island and Shipyard(Hajógyári) Island. There are small ones as well like Népsziget but I don't know all of them.

A little part of the Szentendrei-island isn't part of Budapest?
Perhaps:) (I'm really not sure about that)

BTW: I'm going to upload some maquetts for this project so those who want some more regarding this development stay tuned!

Interesting project and the budget is really impressive, does someone know who is the investor?

And welcome to SSC Peti, nice to see Hungarians are settling here. Unfortunately I can't say the same about Czechs, albeit it's far better than year ago or so.

Thank you guys for welcoming me:)

It makes me feel like I'm special :lol: :banana:

The developers are: Álomsziget Kft. and Plaza Centers (Thank God they hired someone for planning the buildings otherwise we would be looking at pictures of boxes).

Yeah true. It's amazing that they will do a lot of infrustructural things outside the island (of course it's necessary for them so the hotels and stuff are reachable, but they will also renew Szentlélek tér in Óbuda which is very nice .)

The starting date is indefinite. The project's webpage says sometimes in 2007 so it should start anytime now :)
