When we bought our 2 Fractional Ownership apartments I can remember my husband asking our contact at Select, a guy called Matthew about building on the marina side. He said, "hopefully not but Emaar own it, so it will be up to them". That was probably in 2008/9. Well, look who is building there!

When I was there in February I was really surprised that they hadn't covered the exterior like they did at The Address. I'm willing to bet it won't take as long for their repairs to get the go ahead 🤔

Looking at that picture again, I'm not so sure there will be a view as the angle is oblique and not straight on. Marina Pinnacle and Mag 218 have a better chance of a partial view.

Is the plot between Torch and Marina Heights owned by Select as well? cz I heard a rumor it will be developed soon ... I am really genuinely truly sorry for all owners and investors that were scammed by them!

I know one thing for sure, if ever there is a problem, Select UK and Select Dubai don't talk to each other! We left countless messages and sent emails and no-one got back to us. They seem happy enough to take your money but if there's a problem don't want to know

Not sure about the lazy river, but I see scaffold starting to appear at the base of the sections that were fire damaged. Looks like the work has eventually begun.

Thats the view from the City. It seems to be repaired but main fire damage is on the opposite corner (not visible)
