right, next you are going to ask for sharia law in dubai because it will be "good" for islamic tourism!

i think moderators should open a thread for religion so that "i know" can post there as much as he can. he sure have a fundamentalist genda.

Will be good for the real estate market as Muslims will prefer to live near a Mosque, can commute on the metro and have all the facilities they would require

Old traditions are going to have to find they're place with the UAEs rapid modernization. There's no going back any more, and there's also no reason culture/customs can't be preserved aswel.

Being a knowledge based society is the key.

Imre, re the above - it would be really useful if you could take some photos of all the other projects in Culture Village so that we can see "the mess" - good or bad - for ourselves.
I realise that this request is an imposition on your time and good nature but would really appreciate it if you are able to do it!

Interesting thing about this piece is that Dubai continues to suck in cash and talent from its region in the way Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland and London do from their regions. Dubai is considered a safe haven in the region whereas re-investing in the country to which the money belongs is not considered safe.

This is the strength of Dubai -relative stability - it cannot afford to lose that or it no longer Dubai as the talent and funds will go elsewhere.

To be contradictory, it is also arguably good too for the country from which the money has leaked. As a lot of that cash is eventually re-invested back from Dubai to that country. Certainly happens that way in Hong Kong and Singapore on which Dubai sub-consciously models itself.

All,

I would like to apologise to those contributors who sent me personal messages which went unanswered. No excuses!
I am still negotiating with DEC regarding MW2, and as soon as the issue is resolved I will post details.
General question though.........are there ANY good quality apartments in the Marina for sale just now at a knockdown price?

Dubai residents misusing balconies to be fined from March

Trakhees says awareness campaign ends this month; fine set at Dh500 per offence

By Parag DeulgaonkarPublished Saturday, February 25, 2012

Residents of Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Lakes Tower, International City and Discovery Gardens will start getting fines from March if they are found hanging clothes or having a barbecue on their balcony, 'Emirates24|7' can reveal.

Trakhees, the organisational arm of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, supervises residential communities, which also includes Jumeirah Heights Jumeirah Village, Jebel Ali Downtown, will end its awareness campaign that started in October last year by month-end.

“We will end our awareness campaign by end-February and start issuing fines to those not obeying the law from March,” a company spokesman told this website.

In November, the Community Conformance Division of Trakhees had informed residents not to fix satellite dishes on the facades or balconies of their buildings; not to use balconies as places of storage for any purpose other than seasonal furniture pieces; not to hang sheets, clothes or curtains or rugs or mops or laundry on balconies or railings of homes and not to have barbecues in their balconies.

The authority says it has undertaken a comprehensive community-based awareness campaign that includes a range of awareness-raising posters and brochures in five languages: Arabic, English, Hindi, Urdu, and Chinese. Those failing to follow the rules would face a fine Dh500 per offence.

Separately, tenants breaching the occupancy limit regulation set up Trakhees could face fines of up to Dh50,000. The maximum allowable occupancy limit for apartments is one person per 200 square feet from the total property area.

Hello, I went last Wednesday to RERA to check for any news. Well at least now the guys on the reception telling at least "yes it's canceled but it will take some time". When I went there last time the answer was only "if project not cancelled we can't do anything". Well at least I wanted to check because when you go to RERA online there it is nothing mention.

However I send my details to both emails mentioned above and it was not updated in there system. So i advise everyone to go personal there to update the details.

Anyone went to DEC these days ?

Couldn't agree more.
This is a massive issue which threatens to turn many buildings in Dubai into ghost towers.
From what I know the inept Goverment is doing zilch to address this issue.

There are zillions of investors who put their money into Dubai. Many have watched their investments tumble in price etc.Although much of this was due to the worldwide slump, the Goverment could have done something to help matters.They did nothing.

Now it is their duty to make sure those who don't pay their maintenance fees do pay.

I think this issue is important enough to warrant its own thread mods?

Telling it like it is ! Over and out !


Basically not wishing to stir things up but if Dubai was swamped by westerners taking up all the positions of Goverment, admin, regulation, service, Dubai would prosper like you wouldn't believe.

Those in these positions currently are useless, inept, inexperienced, lazy, unorganised etc.

I think your above post say's it all. What's wrong with paying your maintenance fee's to insure your buildings upkeep is taken care of, and most important that it's not cut off from utility providers also ?

Yes there should be serious penalties for non payers because it's not fare to the people who do pay, and that's where we need government regulation to inforce that.

I'm a little confused with your reply, are you saying I'm right, or wrong with my view ?
