Dubai’s government cancelled almost half of the real estate projects planned in the emirate after the credit crisis caused demand to collapse and a housing glut drove down home prices.

Out of 980 registered projects, 495 were scrapped or are in the process of being cancelled by the emirate’s Real Estate Regulatory Agency the government said in a bond prospectus posted on the London Stock Exchange website on Monday.

The cancellations have been prompted by “liquidity shortages for developers, decreasing headline real estate prices and rental rates, and increasing market uncertainty and negative sentiment,” the government said in the prospectus.

Forty-six property projects have been completed since 2008 and another 307 will be finished “in due course,” the government said without naming the projects.

The deepest global financial crisis since the 1930s led Dubai property prices to drop by at least 50 percent from the 2008 peak and forced builders to delay or cancel projects worth about $330 billion, Dubai-based market researcher Proleads estimated in April.

Values may drop another 20 percent as 41,000 new homes are put on the market by the end of this year aggravating an existing glut, said Ahmed Badr, a Dubai-based analyst for Credit Suisse Group AG.

Nakheel, the developer of palm-shaped islands off Dubai’s coast, on Tuesday announced plans to resume work on the Garden View villas project. The 134 townhouses are expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2011, it said. Last week, the developer restarted construction work in its Al Furjan project. (Bloomberg)

No impact in Dubai Legoland park plans despite stake sale

Postado por: raquel em 10/set/2010 | Sem Comentários

NO IMPACT: Dubai Holding’s sale of its stake in Merlin Entertainments, the operator of Legoland theme parks, will not impact plans for a Dubai based version. (Getty Images)Dubai Holding’s sale of its stake in the operator of the Legoland amusement parks will not impact plans to develop a Dubai based version of the attraction, the UK based operator behind the plans has insisted.

However, a spokesperson from Merlin Entertainments, the operator of the Legoland theme parks around the world, admitted that the economic downturn slowdown in the emirate has led to slow progress being made on the development of the attraction.

This week it was confirmed that Dubai International Capital (DIC), the international investment arm of Dubai Holding, had sold its seventeen percent stake in Merlin.
The sale was part of a series of assets offloaded this year by government owned holding companies Dubai Holding and Dubai World, which are both undergoing multi billion dollar debt restructuring programmes.

“This will have no impact,” a spokesperson from Merlin said regarding the impact DIC’s sale of its Merlin stake would have on the development of Legoland Dubai.

In an emailed statement, she said: “Although the broader economic issues in Dubai/Middle east are of course a factor – but if and when market conditions are right then this project still remains one Merlin is very keen to pursue.”

In April, Merlin admitted that “given the current situation in the region work on the project has been delayed, but both Merlin and our local partners remain entirely committed to building a Legoland Park in Dubai.”

In May 2008, Merlin, the world’s second largest visitor attraction operator, announced a strategic alliance with Tatweer, a member of Dubai Holdings, to create Legoland Dubailand.

The AED912m ($248.28m) project was to occupy a total of three million square feet inside Dubailand. Billed as the first Legoland theme park to be built outside of North America and Europe, it was to include more than 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions and was originally scheduled to open in 2011.

In June 2008, Merlin’s CEO Nick Varney told Leisure Manager magazine that the company was “very interested” in working with Tatweer to set up a Dubai branch of the famous Madame Tussauds waxworks museum.

The Merlin spokesperson added: “Currently we have no agreed plans to bring Madame Tussauds to Dubai – although it remains a market in which we are interested for further future development for our brands.” (Arabian Business)
