'Smell the difference, hear the difference, taste the difference, feel the difference… we invite potential purchasers to visit our sales offices located on the development. As soon as you step out of your car at our purpose built site office you will sense the difference.'


They look rather nice, very Green Community/Union Properties, so it's bound to end up looking good at the end. What’s the price ranges?


It is the UAE after all; I said that before, I heard on a local radio an Emirate complaining about Emaar. He said that they don’t post locals in their advertisement. I am telling u, as a local, it is really annoying to see ourselves disappear in ur own country. Those advertisements are something to lie to ourselves that we are still fine

It’s not about disrespect towards locals. The reason why that is because locals prefer to stay in villa's as privacy is on the top of the requirement list. Hell, it would be cool if I had local neighbors in my building, that way I would get to try their home made Arabic food and they could try our Asian food

To date the Dubaai Lagoon is a nightmare worse than ELM STREET. It is due for restart after EID in Dubai which is now so beginning October now has Bel Hassa onboard and I think Ncc something or other again to get the ground works in, they have been made an example of by the government who do not take kindly to being made fools of here in Dubai whereby people invest including many locals and then getting ripped off. I am a single parent and invested and should have had my apartment in Jun 08 its now 2010, rents here are high and the penalties I hope at the end of the build will be covering the outlays of all concerned during this terrible nightmare Schon and town center management have made us go through. Do not buy one of these as mine wont even sell as market and Schon has a bad name. If however its completed we will however be quids IN... as they were very cheap at the outset. thanks, but adding the rent for the extra 3 years wait makes them damned expensive...:confused:


it was realy bad luck to invest with schon properties in dubai lagoons since this lasey company always find excuses for the shameful delay in its project ,i went 5 days back to the site and same paralysis even no single worker , when they will finsh the project if no action for even show buisness to the clinets to give them some psychological support ? during these bad times since all projects arround dubai lagoon show nice progress ,they told us about new schedule for hand over although i paied 60% of the cost ! but still i feel there is major problem and they are not telling , i tried to contact senior people in the company but of no use , i tried to sell but no body wish to buy in a dead project , please any ideas.
