Beijing Olympic Athletes Village

The Beijing Olympic Village, known as "Dream World" is nearing completion.

The eco-friendly complex will house 16,000 athletes for this summer's Olympic Games. Complete with a 5,000-seat cafeteria and solar-powered showers the Olympic Village also has a prayer center to accommodate the various religious faiths of the 2008 Olympians.

The six and nine floor apartments will become luxury condominiums after the Games and already all have been sold to open in 2009. The Beijing Olympic Village is near to the main Olympic venues such as the National Stadium and the National Aquatics Center.

Construction began in 2005 and will be completed on time. Prior residents have been relocated to alternative accommodation.
