^ Looks similar to the "City of Pearl" they're planning in Manila Bay. But it hasn't started construction yet. Supposedly they will start construction some time this year, but we'll see.




PIK2 also reminds me of the reclaimed areas that are are being built up near Manila Bay. The Mall of Asia, the casino and resorts area. Those are all on reclaimed land, like PIK2.

There's a lot of stuff already there:

Some nice casino/resorts

^This building has tons of entertainment for all kinds of people. Not just casinos

One of the areas inside


City of Dreams- another entertainment complex


Sofitel


Solaire


Also lots of condos, shopping, and dining areas going up. This is going to be the next big CBD in Manila, except it will be different because it'll be more focused on entertainment and leisure, like the "Las Vegas of the Philippines"

^ Didn't they scrap most of that project?

Jakarta governor scraps huge island reclamation project - Asia Times

I know four of the islands are already built, but the other 13, they scrapped. Correct me if I'm wrong

Yeah,yeah Boracay has a beautiful and amazing beach but unfortunately still less foreign tourist than compered Bali .. is because Bali has an appeal like the culture (Hindu) which is indeed similar to Buddhism and original nature that makes tourists flock come to Bali like in this vidio ..

Oke back to the original topic

How is that unfortunate? Boracay was overcrowded with tourists (1 million foreign, and 1 million Filipino tourists) and it's a tiny island- only 10 sq km. So thats why the government shut down the island for 6 months and now has a limit to the number of people allowed on the island. So Boracay will never have the amount of tourists as Bali. And thats a good thing

Most likely after current st*pid Governor step down from the throne, the project will be continued. Jakarta has no choice but to build giant wall (dyke) along north coast to prevent water flooding the area.

And it is too costly to rely solely on provincial Govt budget. So those manmade islands controlled by private entities are there in the very first place. They will share the cost, get control of some islands in return. Win win solution. Unfortunately, current st*pid governor with his underdeveloped intelligence failed to comprehend with this grand design. He stopped the project because inside his tiny brain it will pollute the area and made few fishermans hard to caught fishes.

Well you have a stupid governor, and we have a stupid president. So we're similar

So are they going to continue building the sea wall? I thought it was just the island project that they scrapped, not the actual wall. And what are they going to do with the 4 islands that already exist?

Nice to know that.

NAIA with the Manila skyline at the background.

(old photo though)



3 new airport proposals are currently in progress but it seems that the 3rd one is most favored by the current administration.

(1) Developing Clark International Airport as the countrys main gateway.















(2) Developing Sangley Airport as the main gateway while maintaining Clark as 2nd hub.










(3) Developing a New international airport in Bulacan and eventually closing NAIA, still maintaining Clark as 2nd hub.

The sea wall project itself is still on going, very slowly though.

The ones that got "cancelled" were the remaining manmade islands.

I've seen that New NAIA proposal since years ago, almost at the same time when I first saw proposal of Kertadjati International Airport.

Now, Kertadjati phase 1 is finished and already in service for months. But I still can't find any real update from New NAIA.



Kertadjati now



The intention of building this airport is to ease traffic in Soekarno Hatta International Airport by breaking down the pax, esp pax from West Java area.There's a plan to connect this airport via airport train and highways to Bandung, and Bandung to Jakarta via HSR.This airport is 180 kms away from Jakarta.
