Reclaiming the land from the sea

From Straits Quay and Gurney Drive you can see that a big portion of the sea is being reclaimed at a quick pace. Very soon neither Gurney Drive nor Straits Quay will have a seafront ...... more likely a "mall front" or "condo front". I think the reclamation job was given to the E & O who built Straits Quay on reclaimed land. This pic was taken from Straits Quay.

Too bad if you bought an apartment @ Straits Quay so you could moor your boat there.
