Quite spectacular! I just hope they have mobile phone signal blockers and that they are able eject 'chattering' patrons...as they should, but don't, in Dubai cinema's.

Opera is an acquired taste that demands concentration from the audience. I have a feeling that it will be accepted...just maybe not respected by some patrons who are joined to the hip with their phones or can not stay silent for more than 5mins.

Indeed congratulations are due.

Can we now see the delivery of the schools, shopping precinct, tennis centre etc. that was promised as part of the Victory Heights masterplan?

The next set of townhouses I understand have replaced what was originally scheduled to be a school for the VH community.

Outside of the VH development, there is still a lot of work to be done, with temporary roads (now in their 4th year) and plenty of semi-built towers being left to the elements.

Sports City could be a great place to live, if..............

Are they nuts?! I have three daughters and I told them each that they needed to keep the costs under $3,000 and they did. The family did a lot of the flower work and we found inexpensive venues for the activities. I told them if they are still married after 20 years and I am still around, I would give them $10,000. Who wears the pants in your family?

Agree with Ali totally. The sad part is there will be enough foolish banks and financial institutions who will come forward and give Nakheel as much money as they want.

What ever Nakheel may say, Morality , Integrity and Honour are concepts they seem to be totally oblivious to. How else can they claim they will be debt free ? Suppliers accepted your unfair and unjust settlements because they had no choice. Nakheel will ALWAYS owe them , Nakheel will never be out of debt to them.
