Dellis Cay

The other day I happened to pick up a free magazine (Caribbean Construction) from the grocery store and to my surprise I discovered one the most amazing places being built right now in one of the cays in Turks & Caicos Island. The name of the development is Dellis Cay, so I thought I would share it with you...

I'm just going to give a little information on it and then will let you judge and enjoy the picture of this very amazing project.

Dellis Cay
has a surface of 560 acres and should hold 124 private villas, 154 residences, the Mandarin Oriental hotel, as well as a marina. The construction began on June 4th 2008 and is expected to be completed in the end of 2009. The vision of the project is to realize the beauty of nature by its architecture.

Seven of the world’s foremost architects will bring Dellis Cay to life with masterful designs that harmonize with the island’s natural beauty, such as Zaha Hadid, Piero Lissoni, Shigeru Ban, Carl Ettensperger, Keungo Kma, David Chipperfield and Chad Oppenheim.

The development includes the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Dellis Cay, The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Lissoni Beach House Residences, Lissoni Beach Villas and Lissoni Ocean Villas, all of which have sold. The comprehensive Spa at Mandarin Oriental Dellis Cay, designed by Kengo Kuma, will span 30,000-square feet and feature 15 individual rooms and 2 VIP couples suites and state-of-the-art heat and water treatments.

So here it is:
From my personal point of view I guess if I was to build my own thing at the beach I would go for a different type of architecture, maybe not so minimalistic and futuristic as this. But hell, I would take it! What do u think?

Unfortunately not only the project is sold out but I've also read that the residences will range from $2 million to $20 million USD! Although with that price I don't even want to imagine the insurance on it specially cause Turks & Caicos gets hit by hurricanes some times...

Well, at least we get to enjoy the pictures, right? LOL...

WHAT! This reminds me of why I wanna be rich! LOL!

2 TO 20 million?? o.O;; Ok, I'll start saving. Savings for today! *One peso* :D

The pictures are great! The place looks very peaceful and it's gorgeous as well.

But imagine the ones that are far into the sea? That would scary if a hurricane ever strikes there. Everything will be washed away!
