Looking lonely

Camko still looks stalled – phase 2 stands unfinished. Lonely fields surround the completed portion of the project.

Some nice pics

Nothing happening here but here are some recent pics.

Seems like some are living here…

Still stalled

Although there is nothing new happening at Camko and the first phase isn’t even complete, there are some dirt roads outlining the 2nd phase area.

Any takers?

Camko City is generally in a lot of trouble. High level investors are in Korean jail and the project is suspended indefinitely. Half the first phase is hanging undone but the other half seems pretty much complete. There are a few workers painting at the moment, some guards on duty, and even some occupied residences. For the most part, even the completed apartments are empty – any takers? Maybe too expensive.

Open to public

The finished areas of Camko city are largely open to public scrutiny now. The Camko roads can be driven up to the various areas of the project. There are advertisements for the residences and towers but it looks like the new 6 finished towers are still empty. 5 more towers are getting closer to completion. None of the commercial area has been developed yet.

Progressing fast now

After some slowdown in 2009, Camko city is racing ahead again. The first 6 residential towers just got a coat of paint and 5 more are under construction. In between, several residences are already finished.

Minor Setback

Camko construction has slowed down quite a bit in the recession. I heard they might scale back some of the plan. 3 words – don’t. cut. monorail.

Welcome to another ‘international’ city on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. We need more of these right?
