    The Wish joins four other cruise ships already part of The Disney Cruise Line - Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, and Disney Fantasy. A further three ships are planned to be added in 2021, 2022 and 2023.

    I believe so. It will cost over $1bn, expand one of Dubai's most popular resorts and change the skyline of one of the most iconic tourist resorts in the world. It's going to be an amazing construction and, given the current economic climate, will be interesting to see how it performs once opened.

    Construction has continued through the pandemic and the first phase of The Heart of Europe on The World will be delivered by Q4 this year.



    Austrian developer Josef Kleindienst’s US$5bn mega-resort project, The Heart of Europe, in Dubai is on track to complete phase one of construction, despite COVID-19.

    The Heart of Europe is claimed to feature the world’s first floating underwater spa as well as 15 unique hotels and resorts spread across six islands designed to showcase European culture, heritage and lifestyle experiences through architecture, events and new technology, such as the world’s first climate-controlled rainy street and snow plaza.


    Even when COVID-19 halted other projects’ progress on mainland Dubai, the developer reported that construction is in ‘full swing’, with phase one of the project set to be complete in 2020 Q4 which involves the completion of four hotels.

    Could Reflections be cancelled before it even really gets going?

    According to various sources from the construction side of the project, delivery of material has been permanently cancelled, and the work that was done to begin the concrete pours has been removed and the land will likely be returned to its pre-construction state.


    It should be noted that Disney is yet to make any official announcement of a cancellation.

    The residential properties on Yas Island are now progressing well with residents able to move in to some homes soon. No recent information seems to be available on the hotels etc and nothing about those parts of construction included in Aldar's update.

    Following the completion of construction on the first three towers of The Bridges project on Reem Island, Aldar Properties has begun handovers of the 636 apartments offered. In addition, construction on Reflection, Aldar’s 374-apartment development on the island, is approximately 25% complete.
    Meanwhile, Aldar has also revealed progress on its developments on Yas Island. The first two precincts at Yas Acres – the flagship golf and waterfront villa and townhouse development – have commenced handover to customers
    The executive director – commercial at Aldar Properties, Rashed Al Omaira, said: “We are proud to have started the year with a number of handovers including The Bridges and Yas Acres. The Bridges brings the very best of Reem's canal, park, waterfront, and city skyline views, and Yas Acres emphasises a sense of community with leisure at the heart of everyday life.

    “All of our other developments are seeing solid progress and we look forward to delivering new homes to our customers in the coming period. Aldar is also committed to ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of all people working on site.

    The Heart of Europe which is still under construction on The World.

    The plans look crazy with climate controlled outdoor areas, floating villas with underwater viewing rooms and themed islands with European countries as inspiration. You can find out more about the whole project here... https://www.thoe.com/

    Some of the concept art from the site.









    The developers are actually changing their plans because they have sold so many private residences and are now looking to reduce hotel building to accommodate more villas.

    According to Kleindienst, the high demand for already completed villas has led the company to decide to expand its villa offerings in future stages of construction.

    “All our villas [that have been put up for sale] are sold. Because of the high demand for villas, we’ve decided to change the Switzerland island from a previously planned hotel concept to a villa concept. It will be redesigned to provide more villas.
    The first phase of the project is slated for delivery in Q4 2020. The phase will consist of three islands – Sweden, Germany and Honeymoon islands – as well as 78 ‘floating seahorses’ and the Portafino Hotel.

    The creator of the previous video, Abdul Rahim al-Huwaiti, was killed in mid April and the controversy surrounding the changes to this area keeps growing.



    The death of Abdul Rahim al-Huwaiti on 13 April highlighted the tension between the tribe and the kingdom’s development plans. A resident of the town of Khuraibat, he had become the face of the tribes’ criticism of their forced eviction, voicing complaints in videos posted to social media, and appearing in others’ videos. One piece of footage showed him confronting a Saudi official who visited the town to speak with residents.
    Construction is ploughing ahead despite the challenges of the pandemic and the historic drop in the price of oil, Saudi’s primary export. The project is part of the crown prince’s flagship Vision 2030 project, intended to diversify the economy away from oil, which has sustained the kingdom since the early 20th century. Yet the funds required to see Neom realised will inevitably require oil wealth.
    Yet part of the site is the home of the Huwaitat tribe, who have spanned Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the Sinai peninsula for generations, tracing their lineage back before the founding of the Saudi state. At least 20,000 members of the tribe now face eviction due to the project, with no information about where they will live in the future.

    “For the Huwaitat tribe, Neom is being built on our blood, on our bones,” says Alia Hayel Aboutiyah al-Huwaiti, an outspoken activist and member of the tribe living in London. “It’s definitely not for the people already living there! It’s for tourists, people with money. But not for the original people living there.”

    Talking about the progress on the construction of the Norway Pavilion, Kautschitz adds: “The Norway Pavilion, which looks like a ship, is a really wonderful project. We are very proud of the fact that we were awarded this project. At this moment, approximately 80% of the works are done.

    This is the land that Oceanwide own and are developing as a residential community and golf course, you can see the site for Ko Olina in the background of the first photo. Looks like some of the groundworks were completed in 2019 and from reports of the area they are building more public transportation out to that side of the Island in the hope of moving residents away from the main city of Honolulu.

    The railway is progressing, the foundations of the community are on the way but yet nothing is happening over at Ko Olina? Perhaps they are using the capital made from this project to fund the resort?









    The Kapolei West project is part of an undertaking to further develop the west side of Oahu and transform the area into a flourishing community.

    Just trying to work out some of the details as to what is being delivered with this expansion.

    This was the information for the building of the second tower in 2017... it was expected to house a waterpark which I can find no other information on.

    Meanwhile, The Grand’s second tower, the 559-room five star hotel named The Beach Club is 13-floors out of the ground and estimated to top-out within three months. The second tower will include a waterpark and 2000 person amphitheater as well as extensive leisure amenities for guests.
    Source: https://thegrandhotram.com/holy-khoi/

    I also think that this means the new tower - previously know as The Beach Club - is the one that's now being listed as a new Holiday Inn?

    Holiday Inn Resort Ho Tram Beach will be a 502-key hotel featuring facilities geared for family fun. Guests can enjoy their time at swimming pools and enjoy captivating views of the long coastline at the 360-degree rooftop bar. Additionally, the hotel will have direct access to facilities including a cinema, bowling arcade, food court and water park.
    Does anyone know if that's correct or have any updates on the second tower or waterpark elements?

    There is a current tender on offer for a project on The World Islands and was updated on May 12th. Does anyone know what this might be related to? Maybe just an old tender that's been updated incorrectly or is something going on there now? It seems unlikely to be an ongoing project?
