No special architecture I see here. And I think it will be better to add more trees surround those homes to create fresh look and feel.

Everything here looks like crap. The amusement park looks lame, and so do the homes. Why would anyone want to live here?

Developer secures funds for Dubai theme park

By Andy Sambidge Saturday, 19 May 2012 3:41 PM


Al Hilal Bank and Mashreq said on Saturday they had closed a shari'ah fund facility to help finance a new indoor theme park in Dubai.

Acting as the mandated lead arrangers, they said the funds had been raised for the Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group (IMG) but did not say how big the financing package was.

IMG, which is developing the much-delayed City of Arabia project, said construction of the entertainment project was expected to be completed by the end of 2013.

It said in a statement that IMG Theme Park has entered into agreements with world renowned licensors to use their concepts and characters.

A major demand of Skycourts owners – to have the annual home owners' meeting - may “soon” be met, but the building management has yet to put a definite date to it.

Not the best video, but you get the idea....




So you think the Taj Mahal's grand? Wait till you see the Taj Arabia…

Building will be four times size of original and stand next to copies of Eiffel Tower and Pyramids other world landmarks
Andrew Buncombe

Delhi

Friday 05 October 2012


It took thousands of workmen under the control of the Indian emperor Shah Jahan more than 20 years to build the Taj Mahal – a tribute to his beloved late wife. Now a developer in the Middle East wants to build another, larger version in less than two years.

This week developers in Dubai unveiled a plan for the Taj Arabia, a replica of the 350-year-old mausoleum that will be four times the size of the original. They hope it will be used to hold weddings and as a backdrop for Bollywood movies.

The £621m project, which will also feature other architectural highlights from around the world, including the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower and even a replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, will be part of a complex that will contain a 300-room hotel, commercial buildings and shops, officials said.

By Parag DeulgaonkarPublished Sunday, October 07, 2012

At the cost of Dh120-million, Falconcity of Wonders, the master developer, will be building an 11-storey -high Pyramid, which will house offices and a museum. It expects to complete the monument in 24 to 30 months after it receives clearance from the authorities.

“We are building a ‘small’ Pyramid and we are waiting to get the building permit from Dubai Municipality. The Pyramid will contain offices and a museum which will speak of the UAE and the world civilizations,” Salem Al Moosa, Chairman, Falconcity of Wonders, told ‘Emirates24|7’.

Falcon Head shopping mall

According to the chairman, the company is currently working on developing the “Falcon Head“.

“The Falcon head will be the shopping centre and it will be different from what we have here… it will be shopping with attractions.”
