Reality Check Reins In $20 Billion Dubai Mall Development

When Morgan Parker was asked by one of Dubai’s biggest developers to review their $20 billion plan to build the world’s largest mall and 100 hotels to surround it, he took it back to the drawing board.

The former head of the Rockefeller family’s Rose Rock real estate firm recommended a scaled-down plan for Dubai Holding LLC’s Mall of the World project that doesn’t require breaking records to attract attention.

Even the adjusted plans will face challenges in winning backers. Political turmoil, falling oil prices and declining Dubai home values have made Gulf-based financiers skittish about new investments.

And big international funds have been wary of Dubai real estate since the near-default in 2009 after a spending spree on trophy projects including man-made islands.

“Most institutional investors don’t like to take on development risk especially in times like this,” said Gaurav Shivpuri, broker Jones Lang LaSalle Inc.’s head of capital markets for the Middle East and North Africa. “The preference is usually for operating assets that provide income right away but again with the right price point some may be persuaded.”

Dubai Holding’s new plan includes three malls to be built in stages instead of one big shopping center, allowing the project to grow gradually depending on demand and investment.

The mantra, Parker says, is now on realistic projects that generate cash quickly instead of expensive buildings intended to burnish Dubai’s international image.

Avoiding Records

"We are avoiding the biggest of this and tallest of that,” said the 41-year-old, a former Morgan Stanley and Macquarie Group banker. “Dubai is maturing as a city and investors are looking for rational projects. At the end of the day, the money is made by the tenants paying the rent and they are looking for projects that function.”

The project is still ambitious by any city’s measure. The 850,000 square meters (9.15 million square feet) of retail space would combine a Rodeo Drive-like fashion district with street shops and traditional malls.

About 35 office buildings would be scattered throughout the development to support shops and restaurants across the area. The project’s 8,000 homes will range from luxury apartments to student housing and staff accommodation.

...

“We are seeing enormous outflow of money from the region to places like the U.K., Australia, Germany and the U.S.,” he said. “Mostly because of geopolitical risks.”

Austrian developer Kleindienst Group is close to completing the first of its signature floating villas, to be incorporated in its planned ‘Heart of Europe’ resort at Dubai’s The World islands.
On Thursday, the company sent an email inviting prospective investors and other interested parties to view the first of its revolutionary floating homes.
It said the world’s first ‘Floating Seahorse’ had reached “substantial completion on 15th December 2015 in dry docks”.

Dubai-based Meraas on Monday announced the launch of The Green Planet, the region’s first bio-dome that recreates the world of a tropical forest with its rich biodiversity of over 3,000 plants and animals.
The enclosed ecosystem, located at Dubai's City Walk, will offer visitors an immersive expedition into the tropics, the company said in a statement.
The building also includes a giant 25-metre tree, which is the largest indoor man-made and life-sustaining tree in the world.
Scheduled to open in the first half of 2016, within The Green Planet, a green canopy will cover the lush tropical vegetation, recreating the natural habitat of an abundance of species and giving visitors glimpses into the beauty of another world.
The bio-dome will integrate exhibitions and displays that encourage visitors to explore the inner workings of the ecosystem.
Designed to embrace principles of sustainability, The Green Planet is built around the desire to contribute to environmental consciousness in the region, Meraas said, adding that it expects the building to become "a must-visit attraction for residents and tourists alike".
