    Emaar Properties has sold its Address Sky View hotel in Downtown Dubai to Evergreen Hospitality for $204m. The developer will continue to manage the property and also said it has retained ownership of the sky bridge restaurant in the tower.
    The property comprises 169-hotel rooms and 551 apartments, as well as MICE facilities and F&B outlets. It opened for business in January 2020. In a statement to the Dubai Financial Market on January 6, the developer said the deal is “in line with the company’s asset-light strategy for hospitality assets”. Emaar said the deal was executed on December 31, 2020 and is expected to close on January 15 this year.

    In an unprecedented move the Heart of Europe developer just increase the prices of the Seahorse Villas from 20m Dirhams to 20m Euros.

    The developer of the Heart of Europe, part of Dubai’s offshore manmade World Islands, has increased prices by 450 percent by simply changing prices from dirhams to euros, in an audacious, headline grabbing move.
    In a statement, the company said the handover of the first 2,000 residential and hospitality units was due to start this month, and said the prices of its ultra-prime villas, mansions, floating villas and apartment units would now increase fourfold.
    Josef Kleindienst, chairman of Kleindienst Group, said: “Our price increase, specifically 4.5 times, marks a turning point for our existing investors as we enter a new phase in the development. “The Heart of Europe has performed very well across the second home and hospitality segments in the last five years; our Phase 1 is getting ready for handover and all islands are now under construction.

    In the latest episode of Expo Reaction series, Construction Week’s digital editor, Ranju Warrier, speaks to Clayton Kimpton, New Zealand's commissioner-general at Expo 2020 Dubai.

    Kimpton, in an exclusive virtual interview with Construction Week, talks about the idea behind the pavilion's design and theme; constructing during the COVID-19 pandemic; and how the pavilion connects to the nation's values and identity.

    Located within the Sustainability District, the New Zealand Pavilion is based on the M?ori concept of kaitiakitanga, while the pavilion will be presented to the world as the nation’s waka taonga — a receptacle for essential aspects of New Zealand’s identity and values, which reflects the 'Connecting Minds, Creating the Future' theme of the Expo.

    Atlantic City approved the Showboat for its waterpark plans. I really hope this comes off.



    The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority approved designation of the project as an entertainment retail district, which entitles it to an annual rebate of up to $2.5 million in sales tax generated by it for 20 years. There also will be tax breaks on construction materials used for the project.

    This absolutely enormous tower is being built on the Palm Jumeirah. It's going to have great views but I wouldn't want to be on one of the fronds now facing that in the skyline!

    It will house 432 apartments and a new St Regis hotel.

    A special meeting will be held today which might greenlight the building of the previously mentioned Atlantic City waterpark.

    Formal action may be taken by the Board at this meeting on … final project approval of the Showboat Entertainment Retail District Project,” the CRDA meeting notification explains.
    Showboat owner Bart Blatstein, a real estate developer based in Philadelphia, is seeking to have the development classified as an entertainment retail district. If that happens, the endeavor would qualify for construction cost breaks and ongoing reductions in sales taxes at the venue. The New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) will review the waterpark proposal during a special meeting next week, December 29.

    Looks like another potentially big project coming for Saudi Arabia with The Red Sea Project





    Great overview of the project on their main site - https://visiontoreality.theredsea.sa/sub_domain_pages/designs_en

    The luxury tourism sector in Saudi Arabia will receive a boost from the Red Sea Project across the country’s west coast including 28,000 square kilometres of land and more than 90 natural islands. The closed joint stock company owned by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund is developing the project.

    The fund has SAR10 billion in tenderers for the Red Sea Project of which about a quarter have already been awarded. The masterplan by architecture firm WATG and engineering consulting company Buro Happold includes 3,000 rooms across 14 luxury and hyper-luxury hotels on five of the islands and two inland resorts. Construction has already started at the worker cabins and by 2030 there will also be a new airport, yacht marina and 8,000 rooms for accommodation.

    Potential for a massive new resort including theme parks, water park, multiple hotels, ecology and historical entertainment. It would be a similar size to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.

    Just 500 meters from Angkor temple park grounds, casino operator NagaCorp has proposed a giant 75-hectare resort with theme parks, a “China Town” and hotels that the company compares to Disneyland. The resort, tentatively named “Angkor Lake of Wonder,” will be situated south of the Angkor Archaeological Park’s protected area in Siem Reap province and is expected to have its initial phase of construction complete by 2025.
    The first seven to 10 years will be rent-free, with the company paying about $450,000 a year thereafter, with a 5 percent increase every five years. Over the 50 years, Naga would pay a total of at least $21 million, or about $29 per square meter. In the announcement, NagaCorp says the initial phase, costing $350 million, would see two five-star hotels, a water park, indoor hi-tech theme park, China Town and ancient Angkorian-style canal attraction developed. It has further plans for a spa and cultural gardens.
