Dear Mark and all, the Damac called me again for the change of apartment in another building, but I said no. They only call by phone and when I tell them to write email they do not. Perhaps they do not want to put in writing for some legal reason their proposals. Someone new?

Hi Paolo – yes I had a call today from Damac’s director of sales. I was told that Damac Heights is officially ON HOLD and will be for the foreseeable future. We all knew that anyway. Forget pictures of signs saying ‘deep excavation’ and random piling machines and diggers etc. Although I’m not trying to belittle your efforts, Imre. As I think you know, I’m a supporter of you, and greatly appreciate your photos.

I told them that to make a swap in any way inviting for the investor they need to forget saying stuff like X% discount, forget the ‘sales spin’, they need to offer market value.

PS Dear Mods, why not combine the 2 DH threads in to one? Surely there is no need for duplication?

Work going on. Perhaps Damac tells his customers that Damac Heights project is on hold for them to convince to buy in Ocean Heights and collect the money immediately.

Maybe... So maybe you should wait a year or so until it's clear what it will be.

I wonder about the crane segment on the truck, parking in the background... to which project does it belong, and will it be added or has it been removed? For Damac Heights site isn't ready for cranes, I guess.

Oh really? That's cool that you both started it! He said he lost all of it when he got his computer fixed, so do you have the parts sheet(s)?

Also if it's on hold again we should see Zetas leaving. Remember, Damac hasn't just hired the diggers themselves. They hired a contractor to do the ground work who then brought the machinery to the site. If they don't get paid they will stop work and take the machinery with them. Maybe you'll see this in the next update but we'll see.

Hi Malec

I genuinely don’t want to be a trouble maker or offend and I understand that ‘technically’ one forum is for the ‘UAE section’ whilst the other is for the ‘World forums’. However, nevertheless, regardless of what one names the two forums, surely they are still duplication? The biggest poster on both forums who gives invaluable information as to what is (or rather is not) happening at this site (as well as many other sites) from his posts, is Imre and he posts on both forums. I would imagine that he, and others would find it easier if there was just one forum?

As to your other point regarding diggers etc on site, we must remember that, as many other smaller developers have also done, and are continuing to do so, Damac can well afford to pay (and effectively lose) a few dirhams (or even a few tens or hundreds of thousands of dirhams) to maintain a ‘smoke and mirrors’ act (ie give the impression that something is happening when its not)?

There are local and world threads for just about every building on this forum. No one else has a problem with it.

Ok No worries. Apologies. I had assumed that anyone following one of the DH threads on skyscrapercity, would naturally look at the other one (whether their interest is for 'interest', exchanging info, research, fun etc). But seems I am wrong about that!
