OPEN LETTER TO THE CHAIRMAN

To All Trident/Tricare Homeowners, & Tenants.

Please take a look at Trident Internationals Chairman.

http://gulfnews.com/life-style/peopl...uccess-1.25516


He really sounds like a lovely man, beautiful wife and children, good luck to him and his success.

But, is his success built on the misery of of his customers, does he know at this moment with Eid approaching his Management team have decided to bully everyone on Marinascape into submission, by turning of the Lobby Lights, Landing Lights and stopping three of the Lifts, we also have endured having our Access Cards Cancelled, thus denying us the legal right to our homes, and today’s torture is the threat of the chiller water being cut.

Most parts of the property, including the swimming pool, I say pool, in the singular, because we were promised in all the Sale’s Literature another one, the Aqua Centro, with Gym and Sauna, and Squash Courts, but have never been allowed to use that Facility from the day it was built, does he know of the email from RERA stating that NO DISCONNECTION IS ALLOWED, does he know that his team continue to call us defaulters when we are not, we are Non-Payers, because long before any fees where due, we collectively stopped payment, because of the total lack of services, that were never provided.

We have always been happy to pay, if the services we were promised, were ever delivered, does he know after many letters and emails, to try to find a way forward, we are still waiting on replies from his company, does he know that whilst his team have denied us the full Owners (Required by Law) contact list, they quite happily sent to everyone a fraudulent letter from an old Trident Employee, (because they have the full owner’s list) Yusuf Surmawala, extolling the excellence of his own company, and trying to fool everyone into thinking how great the Trident Brand was, and how bad he thought we were, the Elected Interim HOA Board when in reality we were just trying to do our job.
Does he know that his Team, are still taking an extortionate 5000 Dirhams, from Owners who want their Title Deeds, and his Team, have continually lied to them on when they would be delivered, does he know his Wonderful Development Marinascape, has not had a Facade clean since September 2009, and Avant Tower has the dirtiest Banner in Dubai, hanging from its side, with the Trident name on it, is this how he wants his company to be perceived.

Does he know 3 days after a fire in a restaurant below Avant Tower, his security Guards were more than hopeless, and his team sent an email out to all owners, informing them that Tricare had acted superbly and the 2 Towers were evacuated, not true, does he not think as a caring man, that to deny us lighting just a few days after the Avant Tower was filled with smoke, that his management team are added to the fear of the Residents, should another fire occur, and the place is in darkness, Panic would set in, as Residents tried to Evacuate the Building in the dark, with a very great risk to life.

Mr Wazir Ali Daredia you may think that all is right with your Company and its employees, but your customers are beginning to think otherwise, your company's reputation is slipping fast, as we all wake up to the nightmare that is becoming a Guantanamo Bay, or as your Management team call it, Marinascape.


XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Interim HOA Representative

p.s. Dear Mr Ali Daredia, I sign my letters unlike your team, who very rarely do, and remain faceless, if this letter does reach you, I hope my assumption of you as a decent and honourable man, who has some kind of Integrity, will see sense, and stop this now.


The JOPD Board went and paid the Property DEWA bill to stop us being Dis-Connected.
Letter from Jeevan, head of ECM, who found the same problems as us in dealing with them.


Dear All,
I must say with honesty that I have yet to meet a more committed, proactive and united Board like MarinaScape. You guys have really put in so much effort and your own funds when times have been tough. And in times of crisis, a Chairman who reaches out into his own pocket to save the community is commendable by any standard and a mark of real leadership. Needless to say, the owners are very fortunate to have such a Board and I believe they need to know what you have all done and continue to do on behalf of the community. The story needs to be told.

When I spoke to Trident today, I was very disappointed to note their attitude, obviously uncaring and callous to say the least. I have already informed Ahmed Hamdani of what happened today and how the Board has saved the day. It isn’t surprising to me how each Board of a Trident community we have met so far (Bayside, Waterfront, Grand Residences) all have only one intention – to get rid of Trident. I asked Amjad Khan, the Trident Finance Manager if they feel any shame, but I guess he is on a different wavelength.

I made it clear to him, that we expect them to pay up for the utilities NOW since the invoices have gone out and after my lengthy discussion, he promised he will discuss with his bosses to see if they are willing to pay. However, I’m not holding my breath.

I believe the Board should put all that has happened in writing sending it to RERA to keep on record. For my part I will continue to inform RERA of what is happening here, so that they very well aware of what’s happening and who the real culprits are. Hopefully some action will be taken soon by them.

Kind regards,
Jeevan J D’Mello

Did the status of the Pentominium returned to U/C or it's still on hold?
If it is still on hold the status in the title should be changed to On Hold until the construction work continues.

I also looked forward for this great tower!

Not great. Here's a street view... no workers, Trident sign still up there, but that's worth nothing, I guess.

I am starting to give up on enjoying skyscrapers as a hobby. I mean...every time I get excited about a new construction building going up or planned, it stops. It is not fun any more.

I am still very confused by the sudden events ocuring around this towers construction. I mean, what can we expect? A restart, or rather something more striking? Since this was my fav project in Dubai, i am still kinda interested what will happen with it. Allthough the recent shit, that happened related to Trident, makes me enjoy this building's construction less than before.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I got myself very worked up too, now I'm kinda pissed. I should have expected this though. If this somehow starts up again, then I'll be more excited than ever.

There's always the shanghai tower to watch, that should be interesting enough for anybody. Anyway china's where it's at now as far as building supertall is concerned. Maybe we could persuade Imre to learn chinese and scoot off over there so we could still see his great updates.

BRAMBLE has already denied that this has anything to do with Ramadan.

i dont think its just coincidence that the tower has stopped construction just when Ramadan started but since the tower has made no progress you may be right.

Why should the Ramadan seriously affect any construction in Dubai? I cannot believe that any company could afford a delay due to religious issues. Also, most workers there are south asian, right?

This is a holy month for muslim people and nobody cares about the construction progress , construction companies/developers should calculate with The Ramadan and Summer break .

This project has nothing with the Ramadan, developer money just gone and as I have heard it will be ON HOLD for a long... so forget this project now..
