I have been intending to go to El Jem for quite some time but being up…
This project is suspended and maybe cancelled
Located to the North of Bizerte the new Bizerte Cap Blanc Resort project is one of the largest in recent years with a projected investment of around 2 billion Tunisian Dinars.
Located in which is currently virgin land, the project will be home to some 25,000 people when finished and will have the following facilities.
• Marina with 450 berths
• Health facility/Private hospital
• Four Hotels
• Aqua park
• Residential and commercial real estate.
Unlike other projects announced recently the Bizerte Cap Blanc Resort is Tunisian and developed by the Makni family who have financed and built a number of large developments over Tunisia.
The Bizerte Cap Blanc Resort also tries to inject a traditional Tunisian feeling into the buildings and layout with the objective being that the development compliments the environment in which it sits rather than dominating it.
The project is due to start during 2011 and then be completed over the following 5-7 years it is envisaged that during its construction the project will bring 5000 jobs to the area.
