This could have happened in China, but it happened in Turkey.
More than five hundred nearly-identical castles appear to be copied and pasted onto this Turkish hillside — but not a soul lives there.
What were supposed to become fairy tale homes, with sumptuous rooms boasting high ceilings, ornate plasterwork, parquet flooring, and other fine finishes, have ultimately become nothing more than hundreds of concrete skeletons.
Developers meant for these uniform villas to be luxury vacation homes for wealthy tourists when they began construction in 2014. However, when the company went bankrupt in 2018, investors pulled out of the deal which put construction on hold.
In addition to villas, the project contained swimming pools, Turkish baths, health and beauty salons, a shopping center, and a mosque.
The French chateaux-style castle exteriors are styled with ornate facades, Juliet balconies, and round turrets that adorn them. But inside are half-finished rooms. Some look as though workers dropped their tools mid-job and walked out.
The development cost a cool $200 million to build thus far. But instead of a grandiose, multi-million dollar retreat, “Burj al Babas” has become something out of a dystopian novel.
Let’s explore Turkey’s eerie abandoned town, where Disney-inspired fairytale mansions sit empty in a sea of construction debris.

Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
