Sochi will become an archipelago-resort

September 25 2007

Dutch architect Erick van Egeraat wants to build off the coast of Sochi, a group of artificial islands, and on them - resort complex "Federation Island". Presumably, the area of the island, or rather the whole archipelago, which is located 15 kilometers from the airport of Adler, will be 330 hectares, and reclaimed from the Black Sea area will be built homes, hotels and entertainment facilities. The project will cost about 9 billion euros.

According to the authors, the shape of the archipelago will resemble a scaled-down map of Russia, hence its name. The landscape of the archipelago will also be a miniature play a Russian, and dividing the island channels resemble the large Russian rivers. This project will create a coast length of 70 kilometers and a great place to live and the rest of hundreds of thousands of tourists. Governor of the Krasnodar Territory Alexander Tkachev signed a letter of intent to implement the project. Construction is expected when it starts, will take five years - from 2008 to 2013. Reports
