In 1979, several architects designed 'plan nouveau' (new plan) for a new extention of Port de Caravella which was to be build on the other side of the bay and would house 100,000 residents, various hotels and cultural buildings. Although the plan was well received with both the local and national governments, the plan was deemed too ambitious and expensive to execute.
But in the 1990's local and national governments, backed by the increasing income from oil fields, started plans to turn this dream into reality. This was mainly driven by the fact that the land around the old town of Port de Caravella was lacking of good building spots and beachfront locations. In 1994 the construction of the new neighbourhood called 'Nouvelle' started with the build of the Centre de Conference.
The new neighbourhood was build to become a tourist hotspot. Apart from the Centre de Conference, the 'Nouvelle' neighbourhood also contains the Port de Caravella Aquarium, the Heineken Tower, the Stade Nationale football stadium, a casino, a cinema, several hotsels and resorts and the largest university of the country.
The 'Nouvelle'neighbourhood is connected to the old town by a mayor causeway that has splitted the bay into a smaller bay and a large enclosed lake. This causeway was also build to reduce the total number of kilometers of coastline that is exposed to the open ocean. This to reduce the chance of floods.
On the westside of the new neighbourhood several highrise appartment buildings were contructed in the early 2000's. The Millennium Towers are the tallest residential buildings of the country.
@Takingyouthere: Thanks for the positive feedback, i'm trying to build the city as realistic as possible.
