I wonder what this extraordinary place …:
… will turn into.
Approximately halfway between Turkey’s largest city Istanbul and its capital Ankara, the Burj Al Babas development will contain 732 identical mini chateaux when, or if, it completes.
Begun in 2014, the hundreds of houses have been left in various states of completion since the dramatic collapse of the Turkish economy led to developer Sarot Group to file for bankruptcy in November.
Too bad people can’t buy them one by one, and put them in lots of other places around the world. Sadly, houses don’t work like that.
Having them all next to each other surely defeats one of the major purposes of a new house like this, which is to outdo your neighbours.
It looks miniature, doesn’t it? The houses look like things you have to careful not to tread on.
