[QUOTE=malec;13502912]I think I know why no contractor wants to get anywhere near this thing.
Unlike infinity where the basic shape of each floor stays the same, just turns a little, in ocean heights they're all different.
I really doubt this is unbuildable as it isn't one of those defies gravity type of designs but will be a pain in the ass to build. Also you can guarantee that once this is above ground it will not be rising 1 floor a week.

Work in progress:


Hi malec

You could be right about how hard it would be to build,I was told that every
floor would be different that must be a nightmare for the planners and builders.Look at the problems they get when all the floors are identical they still have trouble.

Still they should either scrap the 'design' and start again or come clean what the real problem is.

I cannot be the only one phoning an e-mailing every week there must be hundreds of clients doing the same thing,they don't seem to bother either that is the problem with them, no papers dare write about them and no government people do anything to them,they don't have to pay compensation its a licence to print money over there if your company is called Damac.
They are a lying bunch of hypocrates who spin every day with all their glossy Mags and Americanna sales pitches.They are a disgrace to Dubai and the Government are in bed with them they condone this practice with Damac.

P.S

You can't get to the top people they do not give out e-mail address's or phone numbers I wonder why !

Ocean Heights 2007

Hi

I am sure they only finished the piling work to get the next payment in from all the clients on a construction based and time based contract,they got the money of everyone by doing this in January, you will notice and that nearly 6 months have passed and they have done nothing and it looks like this pace will continue throughout 2007.How can any governement let them away it for so long,even if they allowed them do it, someone must say look you can take the piss for a year or two but now after nearly 4 years you have to do something with the project it will not be long to that section of building work is finshed and you have not laid a brick yet.There last estimated time for completion is 2009 how realistic is that date !

P.S

I have heard their friends in the Government has allready pullled them out of a hole last year and they are looking for a hand out again.

Well as long as they proved that they started the work (piling done) and advertise for a contractor, then there is no law for them to meet any timeschedule, I think? Does not mean they have to accept the contractors offer. This could go on forever or until they sell a couple of penthouses to budget for it.

Don't hold much hope for ocean heights 2, who is going to buy there especially at the price required to build it now and the comming down cycle in prices for investors.

Hi Dubai_Steve

You are correct there may be no law but there should be !

And you are 100% correct right about Ocean Heights 2 a lot of time has gone by and I bet there are a lot of investors out there know all about Damac and there build qaulity and delays it has been well documented,even the estate agents talk you out of going near Damac, now that must be bad when the biggest vultures in Dubai stear you away from them.They haven't a hope in hell to get new clients on board unless they are cheap and they put all the money into an escrow account which they won't do on both cases,so there super sales techniques and a wee bit of help from the super Dick Tracy from the states will have to be put into action.

I have got to remind everyone they have two Bentley awards for these buildings 'I mean layouts in the sand' what a joke they are.

Malec, as i said on the other thread, what you need now is one of those new desktops with liquid cooling.

Ocean Heights on Hold

Hi All


It seems all quite on the eastern front again no word on main contractor
as yet and things looking bleak as allways.I was surprised Damac have not
announced any new developements this week must be a first,they must have
enough money to get through till the end of this month,I wonder what will
happen next month 'more new snazzy adds for more new snazzy buildings'
with more awards for 'non buildings' which have evaporated like a bottle of
water in the dry hot sand.


Ah well one can dream Damac can't steal that 'or can they'

Are you an OH investor? You seem to be happy about all the delays everytime you post something Damac/OH related
