Arrow Atlantis City

Hi mates... I've got some awesome 'scraper news for you guys!

My company's deal with the Bahamian Goverment about the two islands "Great Inagua" and "Little Inagua" have finally gone through...


So say hello to the planet's latest country Atlantis


I'm currently pretty much under a gag order while the legal stuff is sorted out, but seing as we got the thumbs up from the UN last night I can tell abit about the investment oppotunity of a lifetime!


See the island Great Inagua ( now officially named Atlantis ) will be home to one of the greatest cities of the world.. and thé tallest when it comes to scrapers!
In fact construction have already started this morning for the Atlantis Tower - a 4 tower structure that will hit the height of 1500m ( 4922ft )
And several other towers at around 1000m ( 3280ft ) are confirmed too!

So if you want to make big bucks or just live in what will become the greatest city ( and #1 finacial hub thanks to the taxation ) drop me a mail or give me a call...

Not too many renders yet.. but here's some from one of the information pamflets..






I'll keep you guys updated!

I probably sound so stupid for asking this, but:

Is this for real or not?

(Go ahead laugh )

It will mainly focus on attracting Northern Europeans and North Americans - but all are ofcause welcome with the right credentials

It will compete with Dubai in many ways - especially on luxury tourism where we believe our location and tropical weather will help us gain the edge

What is "Afree" mean, or is that a typo?

Lots of very original designs in there. I especially love the 1500m Atlantis Tower. Actually, it's one of the coolest I've even seen! Nice work

Great job with the story too. The way you wrote it, it's like there's really an operation going on secretly

I'm definately looking forward to the next update.
