    I was also thinking of how big this is. My concern is where are they going to get all people to work there when it opens? ? ? ? Also, where are the people they bring in going to live and send their children to school? ? ? I wonder if anyone in the government looked in to the inpact on the infrastructure this is going to make on the island resources. . . . O, what was I thinking, of course they did. . . . right. . . . not. . . .

    I see I'm not the only one thinking that. That's exactly why they had a moritorium on new resorts/hotels at one time. Influx of workers not assimilating and no adequate housing. Also, what's happening with the Hard Rock Hotel site? Same problem there.

    check out above thread about the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Resort

    they are planning to go into the Bushiri area to tear down, rebuild and make it nice.

    so we'll see

    would really be nice if they do not do anymore construction up past the ritz...yes, I agree I am worried about the kitesurfer's area as well....
    and also agree they should do something with the old Bushiri....Hardrock would do well there.

    Painfully slow. We were by there several times recently and only saw one person on one occasion working on it. They say it will open in Oct. The question is Oct of what year??
