Dubailand on track to meet deadline, says executive

A senior executive of Dubailand has hit back at speculation that the mega entertainment development may struggle to meet its projected opening deadline of 2010.

In an interview with Commercial Outdoor Design at the Arabian Travel Market trade show today, Mohammed Alhabbai, senior vice president for Dubailand, the company behind the development, said the firm was ‘very confident' of meeting the phase one opening deadline.

"We are very confident. As of today, we are working very closely with the authorities and our own consultants to ensure that we deliver Universal Studio by 2010," he said.





Asked if there are enough contractors available to complete the multiple large-scale entertainment projects under construction, he replied yes.

Obtaining materials could prove to be the only major challenge, he commented. "I think most of those projects if they don't secure the materials, they might be delayed but it won't be a major delay," he said.

Construction on all 24 projects is scheduled to start by the end of this year, with most of the projects already on ground, he added.

"Over 24 mega projects are already on site. They are progressing very well. Six projects are up and running. From now up to 2010, most of our other projects will be open and fully operated," he said.

Approximately 80% of the contracts to work on the project have already been awarded with the remainder to be awarded this year, he added.

Alhabbai's comments come after speculation from within the industry that the supply of talent and materials may be hard pushed to meet demand for so many large-scale entertainment projects simultaneously.

Dubailand has previously stated that it expects phase one of the project to ready for opening by December 2010, with Universal Studios slated to open on December 10, 2010.

Launched in October 2003, Dubailand is expected to become the world's largest leisure and entertainment destination. Developed at a cost of US$63.9 billion, the development is expected to create 250,000 jobs and to attract 15 million visitors by 2015.

Its projects include theme parks Universal Studios, Six Flags, Super Heroes and Freej, as well as City of Arabia, the water park Aqua Dunya, Dubai Golf City, and Dubai Sports City.

A number of projects are already operational including Dubai's first permanent outdoor show, Jumana-Secret of the Desert, part of the Al Sahra Desert Resort.

Ganze 1 1/2 Jahre musste ich zurückblättern um diesen Thread zu finden.
Denn zwischenzeiltich haben wir nur über die Verschiebung der Universal Studios Dubai berichtet (siehe hier).

Wie heute in allen Nachrichten zu lesen war, steckt das Emirat Dubai in enormen Finanzschwierigkeiten. In erster Linie ist davon natürlich der Bausektor betroffen. Man hat sich schlicht und einfach total verzockt.

In der Südddeutschen findet Ihr dazu einen interessanten Artikel.
Die Kernaussage für uns Coasterfriends:

Wie es aussieht, steht Dubai still. Unter dem Namen Dubailand sollte auf 140 Quadratkilometern eine Art Disneyland im Großformat geschaffen werden. Außer ein paar schön anzusehenden Computersimulationen und aufwendig produzierten Prospekten ist nicht viel passiert. Gegen dieses gigantische Projekt verblasst das geradezu mickrige Vorhaben wie die künstliche Insel-Welt, die vor der Küste des alten Stadtteils Deira entsteht - die Bauarbeiten sind derzeit aber auch dort gestoppt.

In Moment geht gar nichts mehr. Die meisten Projekte werden komplett verworfen, andere werden fünf bis zehn Jahre (!) nach hinten verschoben. Mit leichter Schadenfreude kann ich anmerken - auch das ist Globalisierung, liebe Öl-Scheichs!

Will ich diesen Thread mal wieder von ganz tief unten rausholen:D... denn es weht wohl frischer wind um das Projekt, was zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt aber noch nicht viel zu bedeuten hat;)

Stalled Dubailand in talks for fresh investment

Dubailand was announced at the peak of the city's real estate boom

Dubailand, the stalled multibillion-dollar real estate project backed by Dubai Properties Group, is in talks to renegotiate four projects in the resort and plans to unveil details of a sustainable city by end-2012, its group CEO said.
The mega-project, which boasted tie-ups with Universal Studios and Legoland, will announce details of the projects by the second or third quarter of 2012, said Khalid Al Malik.
“We are also in discussions with the others that have struggled during the crisis and that struggle was mostly related to the financial problems,” he said. “Now we are actually in serious negotiations to bring them back and assist… these projects to come back.”
Alongside details of a planned sustainable city within the resort, three further projects funded by Middle East investors will be confirmed in 2012.

“We are currently in talks with three other investors,” he said. “They [include] a couple of investors from the region who would like to start projects in Dubailand.
“We are in serious negotiations with them, hopefully next year [we can expect announcements], in the first and second quarter.”
Dubai had the world’s fastest- growing property market from 2006 to mid-2008 because of rising demand from a growing expatriate workforce and speculation fuelled by borrowing. Prices quadrupled in the six years following the 2002 decision to allow foreign ownership of property in designated areas.
Dubailand was one of the Gulf emirate’s most ambitious developments, announced at the height of the real estate bubble. The resort was originally slated to be twice the size of Walt Disney World, and was reportedly worth AED335bn at its peak.
The project involved dozens of developers and sub-developers and was to feature seven themed areas, residential developments and what was planned to be the world’s largest shopping centre in Mall of Arabia.
The development was placed on hold after the financial crisis triggered the collapse of Dubai’s real estate market in late-2008.
Al Malik said in May that DPG was in talks to restructure and scale back the resort, in a bid to get the project back on track by the year-end.
Business Monitor International in May warned that Dubailand should be scaled down significantly in order to fit in with the “harsh realities” of the emirate’s beleaguered real estate market.
“With….demand for new projects still weak, we believe a significant scaling down of Dubailand's ambitions is needed if it is to fit the economic realities facing Dubai in 2011,” the research consultancy said in a report.
Mal sehen was da bis 2012 alles verhandelt wird:D Eventuell wird es ja doch noch was:rolleyes:

Wenn ich mir den Threadtitel so ansehe, dann weiß ich ja nicht, ob die neuen Ankündigungen wirklich so weltbewegend sind... ;)

Da hast du wohl recht... aber das Projekt ist weiterhin ein Gesprächsthema:

Saudi developer set to restart Dubailand project

Saudi Arabia-based developer Al Hokair Group is planning to resume construction on its stalled Al Sahara Kingdom hotel and entertainment project in Dubailand in 2013, its deputy CEO has said.

The Al Sahara Kingdom has been master-planned over a 50 million sq ft area in Dubailand, the delayed real estate development backed by Dubai Properties Group (DPG).
The project is set to include two four-star hotels – to be run by Al Hokair-owned MENA Hotels & Resorts, an indoor theme park, restaurants, residential areas and a retail souk.
“This is on hold now, but we will try to [restart construction] of the hotels and theme park in 2013, combined with the apartments and villas. This is our plan,” said Sami AM Al-Hokair in comments published by Hotelier Middle East.

When asked when the firm expected the project to be completed, Al-Hokair said construction would take two years.
"[We’re] starting with the theme park, hotels and with the serviced apartments, and the retail – it’s coming phase by phase, but phase one [will open in] 2014," he said.
Al-Hokair added that the developer’s plan to resume the project was in response to increased demand in line with growing tourist numbers to the emirate.
“There is a lot of demand. We expect more tourism is coming to Dubai. I think we’re expecting 15 million visitors to Dubai by 2015,” he said.
Dubailand was one of the Gulf emirate’s most ambitious developments, announced at the height of the real estate bubble.

The resort was originally slated to be twice the size of Walt Disney World, and was reportedly worth AED335bn at its peak. It was placed on hold after the financial crisis triggered the collapse of Dubai’s real estate market in late-2008.
In Octobe, DPG said the firm was in talks to renegotiate four projects in the resort, with plans to unveil details of a sustainable city by end-2012.
Alongside details of a planned sustainable city within the resort, three further projects funded by Middle East investors will be confirmed in 2012, CEO Khalid Al Malik said.
He added: “We are currently in talks with three other investors. They [include] a couple of investors from the region who would like to start projects in Dubailand.

Das nächste Gerücht... oder vielleicht kommt es wirklich so?

Marvel superheroes find home in Dubai with theme park

The Avengers, Spider-Man and the X-Men are among a gang of heroes set to unleash their super-powers in the UAE next year when a Marvel Comics theme park opens in Dubai.

Marvel Adventure, a new indoor family entertainment centre, is scheduled to open its doors to superheroes and comic-book fanatics by the end of next year in the City of Arabia development on Emirates Road.

It will include retail outlets, restaurants and a range of interactive experiences featuring Marvel characters such as Captain America and the Hulk.

The 1.2 million square foot theme park is being built by Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group (IMG), the developers of City of Arabia, which is part of the sprawling Dubailand development on the edge of the city.
The planned Marvel development will be dwarfed by Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World, the world’s biggest indoor theme park.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Marvel for our multi-faceted themed family entertainment destination,” said Ilyas Galadari and Mustafa Galadari, of IMG Group.
“This will be one part of the region’s largest temperature controlled entertainment destinations that IMG is developing which is sure to be a strategic landmark in Dubai, appealing to the region as well as other parts of the world.”
The announcement comes in the middle of a blockbuster summer for superhero films at cinemas across the UAE.

“The park will do beyond well,” said John Chahine, the general manager for Italia Film Company, which distributed The Avengers film in the UAE.

“People are getting more familiar with the Marvel characters,” he added.
“Not only will the park attract tourists, it will combine with a very strong base of customers who reside in the UAE.”
The Avengers had the biggest industry opening ever in the Middle East and the film is already one of the most successful of all time in terms of box-office takings.

It has made more than Dh23 million (Dh6.26m) in the UAE since its launch last month, according to distributors, selling more than 500,000 tickets.

The Amazing Spider-Man is also opening in cinemas this summer, followed by Marvel’s Iron Man 3 in May next year and Thor 2 later the same year.
“I think the park is great for the [film] industry,” said Andy Fordham, the technical and digital film director at Gulf Film, a film-distribution company and parent company for Grand Cinemas, one of the region’s leading cinema chains.

“The UAE has one of the highest attendances per head for cinema attendance and that has to translate well into this park concept,” he added.
The park is hoping to attract more than 10,000 visitors per day and is expected to provide a boost to hotels in the area.
“Following the outstanding global and local box office success of Marvel’s The Avengers and the strong affinity for Marvel in the UAE, we are thrilled to be working with the IMG Group to bring some of Marvel’s most popular characters to kids and families across Dubai,” said Simon Philips, the president of Marvel Entertainment International.
City of Arabia, which was put on hold for years, is planned to be an entertainment, commercial and residential development. It had originally due to open in last year and include the world’s largest shopping mall and a dinosaur theme park.
The development was pitted to be part of the wider 278 sq km Dubailand development, originally intended to include a series of sprawling theme parks such as Universal Studios and Six Flags.
More than 40 projects were planned for the development, which was launched in October 2003 but only a handful are under development.
IMG did not disclose the cost of building the Marvel theme park but announced last month it had raised financing from Al Hilal Bank and Mashreq to fund the project.
The details of planned rides and experiences were also not disclosed. “It’s great that projects like this are happening again in Dubai,” said Ben Caddy, the managing director behind Middle East Film and Comic Con, which launched its first event this year in Dubai and welcomed 15,000 visitors.
“It’s the type of thing that will get global coverage and recognition,” Mr Caddy added.
“Marvel is something we have grown up with. We know these characters like the back of our hand and they speak to every nationality.”

Was ist das für eine Achterbahn? Ist die echt und soll bei Eröffnung des Parks auch eröffnen und der Zug ist zu Werbezwecken festge? oder ist das nur eine Attrape? Entschuldigt, dass ich das Video nicht komplett angeschaut habe, falls man dort die Antwort findet.

Nein, kurzgesagt es ist Deko. Ich habe auch erst gedacht sie wäre echt, aber das soll später bestimmt mal der Eingang werden!;)


Aber insgesamt blicke ich bei dem ganzen Projekt auch nicht durch. Wird das jetzt nur ein reiner Freizeitpark, oder doch so eine gigantische Freizeit-Siedlung, wie man sie in den alten Promo-Videos sehen kann?!:




Klar diese Videos sind schon mehr als alt, aber ich frage mich gerade ernsthaft was die dort im Moment hochziehen. Marvelpark... andere neue Freizeiteinrichtungen und Komplexe... oder gleich alles zusammen...:confused:
Meiner Meinung nach ein sehr unübersichtliches Projekt!

Achterbahnatrappe als Eingangsdeko => Kopiert vom Skylinepark geheim:-)

Soweit ich das verstanden habe waren die Parks von einzelnen Betreibern, unabhängig voneinander, geplant. Der Gemeinsame Standort wäre eher eine "Zweckgemeinschaft"; und Dubai wegen der Investoren. Nun baut man in dem Fall halt die Parks, für die das Geld da ist. Da schon Ferrari-World Abu-Dhabi und so fertig sind, Wasserpark..., und Marvel anscheinend auch nen Park da hinsetzt, denke ich schon (und hoffe auch;)), dass noch weitere Parks folgen werden.
