Has anybody heard of Aqua Boracay by YOO?

It's apparently a new luxury resort being planned or built along Bulabog Beach. What's interesting is that it's designed YOO, the design firm co-founded by Phillipe Starck. The apartment seems to be available for sale and would include a YOO Hotel. I'm just curious if this project has already started.

For your information: of the more than 25,000 registered people living on the island only a handful is what is called 'local' - meaning Boracaynons. The rest is not from Boracay, but also called locals. A big part are employees, another big part are people who came in search of money. Some of them work as tricycle drivers, 'commissioners', etc. The segment of the 'locals' which are not Boracaynons includes also 'locals' from Mindanao and a small part are foreign residents - Caucasians and Asians.

If you write "the locals are loosing out' and/or 'living in shacks' - then please specify. Do you mean 'locals Boracaynon' or locals from within the Archipelago but not from Boracay?

Please specify

Who owns the land that it sits on, answer that question then ask if its worth buying a unit.
