Not So Ambitious Anymore

Maybe it was the global recession? Whatever it was, Phnom Penh Grand International City isn’t really living up to its name. The glorious entrance way and roundabout are a bit much for what has become a glorified golf course. It looks like plans for the international city part of the project are on hold. The golf course seems quite popular and maybe a few of the houses have sold, but no new construction is going on. The disadvantage of waiting in Cambodia is the wear and tear from the elements that start to make the new city look old within a couple years. Already the main roads and buildings are starting to show age.

Nice golf course (essentially all the great city has to offer at the moment)

Houses now for rent instead of sale…

The dancers roundabout quite oxidized now

Entrance road already starting to decay.
