    Nestled between Yas and Saadiyat, Jubail Island is already one of Abu Dhabi’s most idyllic islands, thanks to its lush, stretching mangroves. But the development of Jubail Island is set to see it become one of the capital’s most desirable residential destinations, with six residential estates comprising of beautiful luxury townhouses and apartments currently under construction. But in a new update, developer Jubail Island Investment Company (JIIC) has also unveiled plans for a beating heart for the new local community, the stunning Jubail Marina.


    On track for completion by mid-2023, Jubail Marina will form part of the Marina District, and will feature 66 berths for visitors and residents to set sail for Jubail as and when they please. This stunning seafront community project will also feature a luxury yacht club, scenic boardwalk and a collection of restaurants and cafes that will make the most of the gorgeous alfresco setting. That sounds like a true haven for boating enthusiasts.
    Coming in at an impressive cost of Dhs10 billion, the Jubail Island development is set to be a wellness and nature focused santuary that feels worlds away from the bustle of the city. Alongside the exciting developments at Jubail Marina, residents will be catered to with a bredth of essential facilities including schools, supermarkets, nurseries and specialised clinics.

    Details have emerged on Southern Nevada’s next big casino-resort project which will include a major sports and entertainment arena. Last week, Tim Leiweke and partner Irving Azoff of the Los Angeles-based Oak View Group named the executives that will drive development of the 2,000-room OVG Las Vegas Hotel & Casino and its adjacent 20,000-seat NBA-ready arena.


    They’re Randy Morton, former co-CEO of the Foley Entertainment Group and a four-decade hospitality executive with experience as president and chief operating officer of Bellagio, and Marc Badain, the longtime former president of the Raiders, who helped relocate the team to Las Vegas from Oakland and guided construction of the $2 billion, 65,000-seat Allegiant Stadium.
    The $3 billion project — $1 billion of which is dedicated to the arena — will be built on about 25 acres at Las Vegas Boulevard and Blue Diamond Road, right next to Interstate 15 and 1½ miles south of Interstate 215.

    The design for the ultra-luxury Triple Bay Yacht Club that is set to be Amaala marina developments centrepiece has officially been unveiled.

    Located along the northern-western coast of Saudia Arabia, within the Triple Bay Marina of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Nature Reserve, the yacht club will be a keystone development for AMAALA as it features a free-flowing structure that aims to create a meeting point right between sea and land.


    The design for the project was done by the architecture firm HKS. The project’s design drew inspiration from two sets of geometry. HKS took a look at the unique rock formations of the Saudi Red Sea coastline and created the club’s custom cantilevered terraces that echo the natural shape of the surrounding cliffs that have been eroded over time by sea and wind.

    The design director at the architecture firm, Dan Flower, stated that they aimed to create the project inspired by the local culture as well as the local landscapes alongside the nature of a marine lifestyle. The second inspiration for the project was withdrawn from the relationship between maritime history as well as the sea and mankind.

    Accor has announced it will add 6,000 new keys to Saudi Arabia in the next three years. The European hotel group is at the forefront of hospitality development in the Kingdom, with projects across giga-projects, major cities and religious hubs.
    In December last year, Accor announced the signing of its own all-inclusive concept for Saudi. Accor will partner with local experts Dur Hospitality to open the Rixos Obhur Jeddah.

    The group is partnering with Dur to manage the upcoming luxurious resort, which will upgrade and restyle the Makarem Annakheel Village, transforming it into a full-fledged tourist resort with a five-star luxury hotel. In addition, a water park, swimming pools, and villas with private pools will be added, in line with the Rixos brand standards.
    At the time of the announcement, Willis said: “We are pleased to partner with Dur Hospitality as we truly value their long-standing experience in the Saudi hospitality sector. We are confident that Rixos Obhur Jeddah will become an outstanding destination taking the hospitality and tourism services in Jeddah, the Bride of the Red Sea and the Kingdom, to the next level. This resort is Rixos first project in the Kingdom and we hope this will be the first of several projects on which the group collaborates with Dur Hospitality across the Kingdom.”

    NEOM on Monday awarded drill and blast tunneling contracts for work on the region’s infrastructure, which is considered one of the world’s largest transportation and utility infrastructure projects, and it is an essential element in ensuring NEOM continues to meet its development schedule.
    Two joint venture groups will undertake the project, which is separated by lower and upper geographies, with the first contract awarded to FCC Construction SA/China State Construction Engineering Corporation/Shibh Al-Jazira Contracting Company Joint Venture (FCC/CSCEC/SAJCO JV).

    The second contract has been awarded to Samsung C&T Corporation/Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co. Ltd/Saudi Archirodon Company Ltd Joint Venture (SHAJV).
    The tunnels work will deliver over 28 kilometers in length and provide separate tunnels for high-speed and freight rail services — making the movement of people and goods faster, safer and easier. The rock excavated as part of this tunneling project will be processed for subsequent reuse within the permanent concrete lining of the tunnels and other projects within NEOM to ensure minimal impact to natural landscapes.

    Macau casino concessionaire Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) has awarded the sub-contract for façade works on its Galaxy Macau Phase 4 development in Cotai to China State Construction Development Holdings Limited in a deal described as “the largest single contract amount of façade construction contract in the world.”

    The company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Far East Facade (Macau) Limited will take on the HK$2.24 billion (US$285 million) project, marking the latest in a series of substantial development projects for China State Construction in the region. Its previous Macau work has included Wynn Palace MGM Cotai and The 13, while it also developed Parq Resort & Casino in Vancouver, Canada.


    Providing an update on Galaxy Macau’s expansion work during its most recent earnings update for the March 2021 quarter, GEG confirmed that Phase 3 is now effectively completed and will open gradually from later this year, while work is “well underway on Phase 4."
    “Phases 3 & 4 combined will have approximately 3,000 high-end and family rooms and villas, 400,000 square feet of MICE space, a 500,000 square feet 16,000-seat multi-purpose arena, F&B, retail and casinos, among others. As you can see, we remain highly confident about the future of Macau where Cotai Phases 3 and 4 will support Macau’s vision of becoming a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure.”

    Bally's Casino has been given approval for their new resort in Chicago.

    Now that Chicago’s first casino has received approval from the City Council, things are looking good for casino enthusiasts in the city. 41-7 voted to approve Bally’s $1.7 billion plans for a riverside casino and resort at the Tribune Publishing property in River West. Afterward, the Illinois Gaming Board will make its decision.

    An outdoor park and music venue will be among the features in Chicago’s 27th Ward on the site of the old Tribune Publishing factory in River North. There will also be a concert hall, 3,000-seat theater, fitness center, and other amenities.
    If things go according to plan, the development could begin in the summer of 2023 when Bally wants to open a temporary casino at River North’s Medinah Temple. That will precede the launch of a permanent casino in late 2025 or early 2026.

    There isn't much in those areas at the moment, only contractor accomodation until the hotels are in place.

    Work is progressing on the transformation of one section of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa into a Disney Vacation Club tower. Let’s take a look at the construction progress as of today (May 21st)


    The expansion of The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa includes 200 proposed resort studios, a Disney Vacation Club room type unique to this property. The new resort studio accommodations, which are expected to open in late June 2022, rise regally in 1890s Victorian splendor on Seven Seas Lagoon, a scenic stroll away from Magic Kingdom in the heart of Walt Disney World.

    There's some internal tensions about what will and won't be allowed in NEOM and currently a lot of PR being put towards attracting those who don't want to live under Saudi regulations but without specifically saying they won't adhere to the same rules. It's a thin line they are walking and it looks like the official statements aren't quite as agreed as you would expect!

    Saudi Arabia on Monday rejected claims that its planned futuristic megacity known as NEOM will have different rules from the rest of the conservative kingdom and function like a “country within a country”.
    In an interview published last week by the UAE’s The National newspaper, Andrew McEvoy, head of NEOM’s tourism sector, was quoted as saying that residents of the $500 billion Red Sea project would be known as “Neomians” rather than Saudis and that alcohol — long banned in Saudi Arabia — could potentially be sold there. “NEOM will be treated as a country within a country, with its own economic zone and its own authority. We need to make sure its laws and regulations match the ambitions of those we are trying to attract to work and live here,” McEvoy said.
    The company developing NEOM responded with a statement stressing the site was “absolutely subject to the sovereignty and systems of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia”, according to a report by the official Saudi Press Agency. NEOM will be “subject to all rules that are applied to any part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in terms of issues related to security, defence and border protection”, the report said. The report allowed, though, that NEOM “will enjoy some special regulations related to investment”.

    The bridge plays an important role in providing easy, direct access to Jubail Island as well as proximity to public parks, open spaces and cycling tracks. It will also link different villages within the island to each other as well as facilitating movement between the two sides of the island, where the Jubail Mangrove Park, Jubail Pura Eco Retreat and the marine activities are located, and the rest of the existing developments that lie in the island.

    The bridge stands 140 metres long and serves as the main entrance to the island, helping facilitate movement in and out of the island. Visitors will now be able to access the island directly from Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan highway (E12) through taking Exit 17. The construction of the bridge commenced on August 25, 2021.
