"Phoenix Island (simplified Chinese: 凤凰岛; traditional Chinese: 鳳凰島; pinyin: Fènghuáng Dǎo), dubbed the Oriental Dubai,[1][2] is an artificial archipelago forming an island resort currently under construction in Sanya, Hainan Province, China.[3][4][5]
The island is located in Sanya Bay, and is 1,250 metres (4,100 ft) long by 350 metres (1,150 ft) wide and covers a total area of 393,825 square metres (4,239,100 sq ft).[6] It is connected the shore by a 395-meter bridge.
Designed by Beijing architectural firm MAD Studio, who won the contract in 2007,[3] total investment in the project exceeds 3 billion RMB (approximately $464 million).[4] It is due for completion in 2014.[6]
Prices of luxury residential units on Phoenix Island range from 50,000 RMB to 100,000 RMB per square metre, (approximately $7,700 to $15,400 USD), comparable to high-end properties in Beijing and Shanghai."
