Nothing happening here construction-wise but here are some recent pics.
Following Cambodia's Infrastructure Development

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.

I was driving from the airport to central Hanoi when I noticed the exact arch that is at the entrance of PP grand international city. I don’t know which was built first but as things go, it is highly likely (99.99%) that Cambodia copied. Seriously, it is the same size, same everything. At least the text was changed from Vietnamese to Khmer/English. Ha!

Construction continues on residences but nothing is more impressive than the entrance gate yet. I can say with some confidence that no one is living here yet but aside from that, you can come for golfing, driving range, or lakeside restaurant. These three activities hardly warrent moving in yet as the finished commercial buildings are not in use.

Things are starting to take shape. I love how they start with the supporting infrastructure before building anything that useful (gates, paved roads, arches, statues). Showhomes are now finished – why not go take a tour yourself? Houses priced about $250,000 to $500,000.

Here is some of the planning for Phnom Penh International City which is just north of Phnom Penh near highway 5.
