Phase two of $4bn Sobha Hartland to start in Q2

by Michael Fahy on Feb 5, 2015


Developer Sobha Group has announced that it will begin the second phase of its $4bn Sobha Hartland scheme in the second quarter of 2015 when it breaks ground on the first villas and apartments, as well as starting infrastructure work.

The company, which is owned by Indian property magnate PNC Menon, said that tenders for roads and utilities have already been floated and bids from contractors have been received.

The firm is carrying out most of the construction work on the site through its own contracting business.

The site will eventually include 282 four-, five- and six-bed villas, 18 low-rise, three mid-rise and nine high-rise apartment blocks, as well as a 150,000m² community centre, three hotels, a spa, two mixed-use towers, two schools, three mosques and a clubhouse. These will be delivered in phases beginning in the first quarter of 2017.

The first of the schools, Sobha International Academy, represents the first phase of site works and will be completed by September.

The company said that it is also in the process of opening five international sales offices in London, Singapore, Riyadh, Doha and Kuwait City to target investors.

Vice-chairman Ajay Rajendran said: "We strongly believe that the economic fundamentals for Dubai are stronger than ever and, therefore, the initiative to open overseas sales offices strengthens our commitment to Dubai’s longer term real estate growth.”

Dream Island - Dubai

Dream Island

World's first man-made island solely devoted to partying to be built in Dubai Featuring two "mega clubs", 4 beach clubs & 100 restaurants
  • Man made island will be able to host 20,000 revellers in one go
  • Party-goers will not need personal licence to drink alcohol like in Dubai
  • It will have five hotels and be open to visitors and other island residents
  • 'New Ibiza' promises to be dedicated solely to partying

A man-made party island set to rival Ibiza is being planned to attract revellers to the Arabian Gulf.
Dream Island will be able to host around 20,000 partygoers with two 'mega clubs', four beach clubs, five hotels and 100 restaurants.
The island will be in Ras Al Khaimah, which is only a 40-minute drive from Dubai, once construction is completed.


New Ibiza: An artist's impression of the planned Dubai party island ' Dream Island' where alcohol will be freely available


But unlike Dubai where a personal licence is needed to drink alcohol, booze will flow freely on the island.
Sales and marketing director George Saad said: 'We're trying to make it the new Ibiza - a mini Ibiza dedicated solely to partying.


'People will be able to come here, stay in the hotel party at clubs on the beach, anything in the world you can do.
'And we are trying to attract festivals to come here - like Burning Man.'


Plans: The initial designs for Al Marjan including 'Dream Island' which developers hope will rival Ibiza and attract revellers to the Arabian Gulf



Expanding: The plans for the party island are on show alongside other building projects planned across the region at the Dubai Property show


The developers of the third of four islands that make up Al Marjan are looking to attract £3.2billion of investment.
The party town is on show and seeking British investors at the Dubai Property Show, in Kensington Olympia, this weekend.
The show was launched on Friday by UAE royalty Sheikh Mohmmed bin Maktoum Al Maktoum.



Original: Ibiza has been popular with partygoers for years but the new 'Dream Island' planned in the UAE is promising to rival the Spanish resort

The 4 million square foot island will feature no homes and will only be open to visitors and residents of the neighbouring islands.
The island was built in 2013 and development to make it into a clubber's paradise is expect to be finished by 2018.
The four islands of Al Marjan stretch nearly three miles out into the sea and cover an area of 2.7 million square metres.




Have you already heard something about this project ?

March construction updates in Heart of Europe in The World Islands:


http://www.thoe.com/construction-upd...hoe/march-2015

Quote:
De-watering & Sheet Piling
Having carried out extensive due diligence and a thorough prequalification process with different companies, we are happy to announce that we will be entering into a contractual agreement with two respected and renowned contractors who specialise in dewatering and sheet piling within the GCC region.

Our construction team have already conducted a series of dewatering tests to examine and analyse the behaviour of the sea water table and the movements of tides, prior to commencing open excavation which is due to start soon.

This is a promising step forward prior to laying the foundations for our Sweden Island villas.

Logistics & Workforce Facilities
Monaco Island is currently serving as a temporary logistics and workforce camp during the construction period of The Heart of Europe. This means that everything can be managed onsite, which will ensure smooth logistics and project progress. With this in mind, Monaco will be the last of the six islands to be developed.

We have now successfully completed the installation of our concrete batching plant which is currently undergoing testing, commissioning and calibration reviews. We are also establishing the first phase of our workforce accommodation which will cater to up to 400 workers once complete. We will ensure that the accommodation will include the necessary environment friendly utility services such as water and electricity as well as the treatment of waste water.

Glad to see there is still some work on those islands. Hopefully they will remain for a long time.

Also, is there any more progress on the Dubai Frame? That's the most interesting project here for me at the moment.

UAE companies in race to build second tallest tower in Dubai.

Trend of building 'megatall' towers — more than 600 metres high – likely to increase. Dubai is home to the iconic 828-metre high Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, but companies here are now vying to claim second place on the list of tallest towers in the emirate. RP Global, the latest to enter the property development arena, has announced plans to build RP One, which it claims will be the second tallest tower in Dubai. “The mixed-use tower will be unveiled in the second half of this year. This Dh4-billion development is situated right behind the Business Bay Metro Station on Sheikh Zayed Road and will further define the Dubai city skyline,” company Chairman Dr Ravi Pillai told Emirates 24|7. “We have studied the market carefully and deliberately and decided to build the tower as a mixed-use project based on this study,” he said. Meydan Group had announced plans for a 100-plus storey Entisar Tower on Sheikh Zayed Road, located close to Radisson Royal Hotel in 2013, claiming the right to be the second tallest tower in the emirate. In an advert published in a local English daily, the company said, “The tower is now rising”, with the company website stating it will have two-storey sky villas, an indoor 0.20 kilometre running track, two regulation size indoor tennis courts, etc. Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) is another company in the race to build the second tallest tower. It announced it plans for Burj 2020 in 2013, stating, it will be the world’s tallest commercial tower. The height of the tower has not been disclosed to date, but it is not going to be as tall as Burj Khalifa. The company had said earlier that it expects to break ground this year. In a report, UK-based EC Harris said that within the next decade — the trend of building 'megatall' towers — those which reach more than 600 metres high – is likely to increase, particularly in the Middle East. The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat data also reveals there are only 11 towers in the world, which are constructed with over 100 floors. Currently, Dubai has 917 high-rises and 465 skyscrapers, states Emporis, which collates data on building worldwide.

Dubai reveals plans for 3D-printed 'Museum of the Future'.

The vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, unveiled his vision on Twitter for Dubai's next architectural ambition: the Museum of the Future. As the name suggests, the building will be bold and imaginative, pushing the boundaries of architecture and design. Museum of the Future, Dubai, Dubai Museum of the Future, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai architecture The $136-million attraction, scheduled to open in 2017, will be a high-tech showpiece of technological advancements. The UAE leader said the museum will be “a destination for the best and brightest inventors and entrepreneurs.” The football-shaped structure with a hole in the steel will center on a holographic billboard and feature exhibits on different areas of innovation from education to healthcare. Large components of the building will even be 3D printed for the cause. The motto for the building is “See the future, create the future.” It strives to unite inventors, designers, and researchers for collaboration on technologies, including automobiles, robotics, genetics, and more. Museum of the Future, Dubai, Dubai Museum of the Future, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai architecture. The Museum of the Future is the latest in a burst of superlative projects from the UAE capital, which range from plans to erect the world’s tallest twin towers to designs for an Aladdin-inspired city in the oldest section of Dubai to the world’s largest shopping mall slated to debut at Expo 2020. The museum will stand adjacent to the Emirates Towers on Sheikh Zayed Road. The architect has not yet been announced.

Could Dubai build an underwater tennis court?

From the department of “no, really, this is an actual thing human beings have discussed,” Dubai could (but won’t) be getting underwater tennis courts with hopes of one day hosting a tennis Grand Slam on them. This completely inane innovative idea was presented by Polish architect Krysztof Kotala, who has a laundry-list of degrees that show you he means business when he says he wants to put a giant piece of glass overtop seven different tennis courts that would sit at the bottom of the Persian Gulf, in between the Burj al Arab (the world’s only seven-star hotel) and the Palm Jumeirah islands (yes, the artificial islands you’re thinking of). Fish would swim above, which could provide for some interesting metaphors if, say, Serena Williams was playing Maria Sharapova and fans got sight of a shark devouring a minnow both on court and in the seas above. But, come on, this isn’t happening because it’s not practical, it would cost billions and because it’s not practical. First of all, the Grand Slam thing isn’t going to happen because, despite recent calls to move the Australian Open to China or one of the rich countries of the United Arab Emirates, that major isn’t going anywhere. And seven courts aren’t nearly enough to handle the amount of matches that take place during the first week of a Slam. And, of yeah, no one is going to build a tennis court underwater, no matter how awesome it sounds. I get that Dubai and Abu Dhabi are having a luxury arms race to see who can waste their oil money faster, but this proposal (which currently has zero investors) is ridiculous, even for them.

It sounds super cool, but that would be some engineering feat to create a glass roof that big underwater without getting leaks.
