What does KD stand for? And does this look like it's located on um al khanzeer island?

This is really beautiful. Alhamdulillah it will soon be reality.

Baghdad the capital of Arab culture need to return to it's former glory as the capital of the Arab world (of course apart from the Two Holy Sites) and former seat of the Caliphate which it was for 500 years and nominally for 800 years.

That beautiful city has such a rich Arab history and was center of the Islamic Golden Age.:)

so they're planning on turning the current site of the old estikhbarat into a "business district" with towers. That would be doable as its government land. a few bits are currently palm groves and the kadhmiya club but they would be taken with a "compulsory purchase order"

I don't see the point with the lakes in the middle though. the site is already surronded by water!

I wonder what the adhmawis will make of this? sitting in a slum across the river? sectarian much?

This thing seems a bit too good to be true. I think they'll both be sitting in slums for some time.

LOL! So they just decided to throw in a bunch of random skyscrapers together on some empty piece of land? How dubai-like... no thanks. Sort of disgusting.

Rest of the project looks good though. Similar to their plan for Karbala.

This is just a proposal, Dewan Architects already won the competition! So most likely this project will never happen!

No, we will be happy for our Kadhmawi brothers. :D And will patiently await our turn..
