    Now that Expo 2020 is over, work is being done to create District 2020.



    Dubai is getting ready to welcome District 2020, a ‘smart city’ that will take shape in and around the Expo venue – and in no time emerge as the next big thing when it comes to choosing an office, a home, or a retail space.

    Dismantling of all non-legacy structures at Expo site will be done in 3-6 months.

    The Dara Sakor Airport
    The Long Bay Casino hotel (the only one with some activity and construction still going on)
    The Dara Sakor Resort & golf course
    and the ghost casino & apartments which seem abandonned since 2020...
    We get a full view of the resort, some abandoned and ongoing construction sites, and the airport which is under construction.

    Unstable weather conditions in the UAE have forced some pavilions to close due to damage from the heavy rains.

    Organisers at Expo 2020 Dubai are working round the clock to ensure pavilions stay open despite the heavy rain in recent days.

    Several were forced to temporarily close as staff worked to repair damage caused by the downpours.
    Also want to add that in the past couple of weeks especially during the holidays, some pavilions have been forced to shut due to COVID outbreaks amongst the staff.

    Dubai's Expo 2020 said that virus outbreaks among staff may force some parts of the fair to "close temporarily for deep cleaning and sanitization," without elaborating on the scope or the location of the infections.
    I personally haven't been there in a while, waiting for the weather to be better and the cases to mellow down a little bit.

    Update on construction:

    The Osaka prefectural and city governments on Dec. 21 announced a plan for developing a casino-centered integrated resort expected to open in 2029 that will be backed by 20 major companies.

    Well-known firms such as Panasonic Corp., Suntory Holdings Ltd. and West Japan Railway Co. will invest in the project, according to the details announced.

    The resort is planned to be built on the artificial Yumeshima island in Osaka Bay.

    But the city will need to shoulder about 79 billion yen ($692 million) for soil-improvement measures, including site decontamination and control measures against soil liquefaction, according to the plan.

    Quick update: Saudi ACWA secures $1.33bn to power The Red Sea Project

    The debt facility closure was arranged by a consortium including Al Rajhi Bank, Banque Saudi Fransi, The Saudi British Bank, Arab Petroleum Investment Corporation, Standard Chartered Bank, and Riyad Bank.

    TRSDC, fully owned by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, will be developing the world's largest sustainable tourism destination that will run on 100 percent renewable energy.

    The project – which will add 736 new housing units with prices starting at AED510,000 – is planned to be finished and handed over by the last quarter of 2024.

    It is one of 12 real estate estates being developed by Reportage Properties in the UAE, providing about 6,000 homes in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, in addition to a project that has already been handed over in Masdar City.

    Holiday Inn opening pushed to January 2022

    The launch of Holiday Inn Resort Ho Tram Beach (pictured), a new hotel at the site of The Grand Ho Tram Strip casino resort in Vietnam, has been postponed to January 2022, the operator of the complex has told GGRAsia. That was because of travel restrictions linked to the Covid-19 situation in Vietnam, despite the new accommodation being ready to open.

    In an emailed reply to GGRAsia, a property spokesperson said the new Holiday Inn tower was “ready to take guests,” however its launch was postponed “due to the current Covid-19 situation in Vietnam.”
