Construction Start

Any news or views on the construction of Ocean Heights would be greatly appreciated. It is now four months since we got our letter from Damac delaying completion until the end of 2009, and not a lot of work on site has been seen since.

Like you Spoogle, I am getting extremely angry and frustrated by the lack of progress since Damac's letter back in March.

The Khaleej Times reports further adds fuel to fire.

You'll find Peter Riddoch will only pass your complaints to his henchman Alan Gammon, VP Client Relations whose response are absolutely waffle as I've guaged from his letter from March.

We need more OH investors using this Blog to guage how many have invested in this sitting duck project before collectively contacting Damac whether in London or Dubai.

I totally agree, therefore could everyone who has bought into this project and is wanting answers on why it is taking so long to get started, please leave contact details on this blog, or at least send a private message to me so that I can keep you informed, this should add clout to any correspondence we have with Damac.

Hey Spoogle and Nidoenator,

I'm Mo or sachemo. I've bought in Ocean Heights. We should approach a lawyer together with other frustrated buyers. I also did a search on Peter Riddoch to find out more about his background. Find something interesting, from ARB, Architects Registration Board in UK. We need to speak urgently.

Please contact me via email.

I too purchased one apartment on 15 th floor of ocean heights and paid up 30% in January 2005. Agree with your views. I had the opportunity to meet the Chairman in person on a different business for about two hours along with his number two man and they seemed very bullish of all their developments with out being commital. I was told my investment in Lakeview could be sold for approx 1000 AED per sqft.
