No, I’m not talking about the Cedar Island project off Lebanon’s coast; I’m talking about the Lebanon Island project off Dubai’s coast. Indian national, Mr. Wakheel Ahmed, the owner of the island plans to construct:

…a resort comprising 76 suites, 10 water cottages, a health club, a swimming pool, restaurants and suite rooms.

Work on the project is expected to begin next month.

Lebanon Island - The World Dubai

Though, it doesn’t really sound like Lebanon, right? Where are the minuscule road ‘networks’ (I use that word ever so loosely) and the building-to-building neighborhoods? What about the nice and shiny smokestack power plants that primarily produce smoke with electricity as a by-product?

Oh well, I guess you can’t beat the original design.
