    Wow !!! that's pretty aggressive. Observation---where would all of the local Arubians go if that's all taking place in the Baby Beach area. What about the upscale hotel they were talking about? Refinery? And lastly if it does come to realization, it won't be completed in my lifetime.

    the first thing i thought of was the same as you mentioned.. "where do the residents live and not in my life time...maybe my grandchildrens?"

    I have to wonder, would the locals want this? It certainly would change the island. It seems very aggressive, but I agree, probably not in our lifetime.

    IMO: No, no, no and NOOO!!!

    This does not look like Aruba anymore! This looks like Utopia! I personally would have NO desire to go there anymore!

    I also wonder what the local people of Aruba think about this.

    I keep saying enough it enough,but who am i just a spoke on the wheel. Bring back the great days of the best of Aruba 80's and 90's. All inclusive deals were great you could get a bottle of beer or a hennesy. I do love all the new restaurants and the high rise area bustling. I guess that project a little over the top for me!

    ..... and it looks like a wholesale displacement of current residents to make room.... I totally oppose anything like that.

    i question the validity of the whole thing.
    this you tube was not on minister otmar oduber's facebook pages.
    he usually has these kinds of things posted.

    and...i cannot believe that some of my aruban friends are not being verbal about this.
