Description Erbil, the political and business capital of the Kurdish region in the north of Iraq, is becoming an alternative to Iraq’s southern provinces to tap into the country’s oil wealth and other business opportunities.
Plans call for dozens of towers, many above 30 stories, and 300 villas, with more than 13 million square feet of space, representing a $2.3 billion investment. Marathon, Chevron, Total, Hunt and other oil companies have already signed deals at Empire City.
But Empire City is just one example of what has been a highly effective campaign by Kurdish leaders to make Erbil a haven for Western business.
