Falcon City of Wonders
So they already have the World, what's next for Dubai?
The latest project is called the Falcon City of Wonders and is a $1.5 billion bird-shaped city which will include
life-size replicas of seven wonders of the world as well as offices, shops and homes. Three buildings will be modeled
on the Great Pyramid in Giza, the Lighthouse at Alexandria and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. There will also be
replicas of the Taj Mahal, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Eiffel Tower and the Great Wall of China. Residential villas
will be situated in the wings of the falcon. The Falcon City website has
details of each structure in the massive undertaking. The project is spread over an area of 100 acres and will be
created in five overlapped phases, with the first phase expected to begin by the first quarter of 2006.
