SihanoukVille Infrastructure 2014

SihanoukVille's manufacturing, housing and infrastructure is booming.
Not only that, SihanoukVille's Islands are booming as well.

Several new factories in the 2 SEZ's (Special Economic Zones), especially the Route 4 zone.
Thanks to the Angkor Beer several million expansion (several million cans and bottles a day), we now have box and can factories (need a bottle factory too, please).

Agriculture, seafood (seaweed), and even and Absynthe distillery.

Island constuction and deep sea (shallow sea) oil drilling, we don't know about.  It's too far out.  But it's happening now.

Electricity is here, thank to the 2 new generating plants at Steung Hauv.

Housing and apartment developments popping up all over.

Water is good for the moment.

Road construction and repair every day (until the rainy season)

The SihanoukVille Port upgrades are finished, and may need more due to increased shipping.

Tourism is also growing here, on both the mainland and the islands, and the population, due to immigration from in and out of the county is growing.

What else do you need?

New construction and building in SihanoukVille, Cambodia. Summer 2011.

The building boom continues, here in SihanoukVille, Cambodia.

The bridge to Snake Island is finished, and the island construction has begun.

The Marina is virtually finished, and most of it is already sold out.

Construction of the power plant in Steung Hauv has begun.  Should be finished in 3 years.

The Special Economic Zone by the port is nearly complete, and is filling up fast.

The Special Economic Zone outside of town on Route 4 near Ream National Park may have to be expanded to accommodate the demand.

The old Holiday Palace Casino is undergoing a complete renovation (or complete teardown?) to make a new casino / hotel resort under a new company. (The old one moved to Independence Beach) SihanoukVille now boasts 5 casinos with the addition of Sokha Vegas, Golden Sea, and Diamond Sea Casinos.

Around downtown, several large residential / business parks have been completed or are near completion.

News of the SihanoukVille Airport re-opening the end of 2011 or 2012 with flights to and from Siem Reap (home of Angkor Wat) with 2 airlines serving the route.

Several new hotels and restaurants have opened up around town in the last year (even in the last month).

The islands around SihanoukVille now have many small bungalow/restaurant/dive shops, and it's not known about the progress of the major developments on the islands (except for Morakot Island and Mirax Island).  Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem promise to be the largest.

New roads are being built, new housing developments are starting all the time.  And old buildings are being torn down and replaced with new and bigger buildings.

Not much news on the offshore oil drilling, but they have rented or purchased a lot of property in town.

Even the Wats  (Buddhist Temples) are doing a lot of construction.

Most importantly, Cambrew, the home of Angkor Beer (and soon Carlsberg Beer) has expanded, because the 24/7 schedule can't meet demand.

Probably some more, but it's too much to think of at one time.

New developments in SihanoukVille, Cambodia. November 2010.

It's not stopping  yet, here in SihanoukVille, Cambodia.  New roads put in, and old ones upgraded; new hotels, power plants, sewers, government offices, shopping malls, office buildings, and on and on.

Pearl City in back of Sokha and Independence Hotels is nearing compmletion of Phase One, and will have condo's and a shopping mall ready.

The real estate market is slow but improving, and prices remain high, as many people own their land outright, and are not eager to sell until they can get their asking price.

As for the SihanoukVille Airport????

The bridge to Snake Island is making slow but steady progress.

The Marina has some units sold and occupied, and construction is moving along.

Some large residential complexes are either finished, or just finishing up (at least with the initial phases).

Hilton Park Villa and BS Holiday Villa & Condominium on O'Pee street (or is it O'Bye) have sold substantial numbers of units, and the BS Villa has many occupied homes. The project in town at the old bus station has nearly 100 townhomes almost ready. On CT Street, the shopfronts of the only development right on the street are occupied, and construction continues behind. Several (dozen) apartment buildings have been completed this year and are fully occupied.

Power plant construction has begun in Steung Hauv, which may supply electricity to SihanoukVille.

The Port facilities are complete (for the moment. They never stop expanding)

And on and on...................
