Burj Al Babas

Burj Al Babas is a luxury housing development in central Turkey where the builders completed 587 identical "villas" before going bankrupt.

Something about this place creeps me out. Drone video here.

Something about this place creeps me out.


Moreso than any other housing development where all the houses are identical?

Well, I do think one notable difference is the lack of landscaping and greenery. Here in America, our gated communities and subdivisions full of indentical buildings at least have the benefit of variety in terms of what is planted around them.

Another thing is the way they are arranged. One part of it is that is we don't normally construct houses of this height without spacing them out further apart. Another part of it is the more general way we lay out houses tends to be along grids and curved roads.

Another vital thing to note - there are no walkways. There are no fences. There is none of the infrastructure you would normally expect surrounding a house. There are power lines but no connections to them. I wonder if they bothered with plumbing.

All of this suggests this was never intended as a real place for people to actually live. The only thing that makes any sense is that this was a scam of some sort, and for some reason they felt they actually needed to build the houses, even if they didn't build them in a way that anyone would actually want to live in them.

There is a "gallery" of still photo's at this link as well as information about the incompleteness.

The gallery shows some landscaping, and a couple of interior shots, including a kitchen with several appliances.
