i remember once being allowed a sneak peek at the spreadsheet with all the investors and the stages of their payments. this was post recession and looked relatively healthy however i noticed most seemed to be from the subcontinent - whether that is a good or bad thing.....you decide....
lets face it zarooni is one of the most connected men in the uae so cant ever see RERA making him 'lose face'. i'm still going to put in the last 10% when asked for it as i'm too far in to quit now. wish theyd give a bit of info which was believable for once just so we know where we stand but thats just not ever going to happen.
also - tiered completion maybe but i understand that they'll all be released at the same time. do you reckon they will put the gyms and stuff in....(think JBR, Palm etc).
anyway i'll pay it up as just hope for the best even if it does take another 2 years. i've totally screwed up my family's finances now but somehow i just cant the emiratis caring too much.....haha
by the way, last point, we'll need to be prepared for handover costs like RERA etc and group together or i imagine they'll try to screw us over like they did at Trident where they asked for gbp30,000 (!) for connection. they were defeated in court by the residents so there is some small hope....
toodle pip!
reading your previous posts and the one here...i realise that you are very accurate at the very impossible and worsening situation at DSC regarding CRW...
possibly amongst all the other posters here your messages, got lost...mainly because you are so up beat ..!

I agree with you DSC can,t be taken on face value any more...why i don,t know ..well obviously its to do with cash ,,but how or when, i have no idea other than to make guesses...?

when one looks at the real situation regarding Canal Residence West it is unlike any other problem in Dubai ..in that it is more or less sold out and the finance in place or will be on completion ..with master developer yet ?

Took a drive-by over the weekend and all the scaffolding is off the Mediterranean tower, looks pretty much finished. The other two still have a bit to go, especially the Venetian. I cannot see how they can handover until they're all finished, they're so close together, the infrastructure is all linked.

I tried to ask the workmen there about it, but they didn't rally understand me lol

Anyone else got an update?

Sorry to seem to be the bearer of bad news every time, but this is a quote from a contact I have living in DSC, about the CRW buildings: "We regularly keep an eye on your building and can report that the crane attached to it has not moved in months. Many other buildings are actually being worked on / finished so we do feel some sense of optimism that more is starting to happen in Sports City." So Sept 2012 is looking like another false dawn...

Does the crane need to move ? Photographs suggest that structure is all but built. Looks as if just the inside need doing anyway.

Venetian is on-hold????? Where is this info coming from? How can you put a virtually completed building on-hold? And what does that mean for the other two buildings, when they're all interconnected?

What a nightmare.

i dont have confirmation whether CRW is on hold. But, even if it is, then its not construction hold, it is more of a strategic hold. They might wait for handover so that the infrastructure around the CRW is completed, namely the canal and roads, utilities etc.

So this kind of hold is not a bad thing.

The scaffold is coming down...!!

Well after seeing some photo's this week showing the European Building, I am very happy to see that the scaffold is coming down as the external painting is complete....I can now see my balcony in all it's glory....I'm not stupid enough to think that handover is anytime soon but just to see some progress is heartening...

I have to say the the buildings look great, we made a very good decision with CRW.....better than any other development in DSC or in Motor City...!!

Come on DSC....just another push to get it over the line and I for one will be a happy man...

I am happy for them that they are happy but I wonder if would like to live in construction site with no sight of completion...
I was assuming they had jobs in the middle east and where renting..construction site ,you mean like the marina was ..is..?

some construction in DSc but most towers are isolated from this...there are plenty of unfinished buildings and large areas of mobilisation and holes in the ground but those areas ,Chapal Destiny 1 & 2 / Oasis 2 / Global golf x2 /Rufi Century/Soccer Tower etc. are hidden away .but there dead and no one needs to go there ,but its hidden away so no problem ....

Why would any sane person buy there any way, all those towers in that area would have been worthless even if they did build them..no views,and many better options in DSC imo
