Ambitious Dubai projects including plans for the region’s first rotating tower and a luxury development on the island of Greece on The World project have been included in a new list of cancelled property projects published on the Dubai Courts website.

The document, which was first published last summer as a list of 18 developers and 36 developments, has now been extended to more than 150 projects.

Dubai Courts said that two projects by Khyool Investment – Abjar Tower and Faras 2 – had been liquidated and the money from them distributed among investors.

It said that Rera’s Cancelled Real Estate Projects Committee was currently hearing cases for another 17, all of which were developed by Reliance Real Estate Development.

Another 34 cases were in the process of having funds distributed among investors after having been heard and registered by the committee, Dubai Courts said.

The website added that the remainder of the projects listed had been transferred to the committee and would be heard soon.

“The committee for the liquidation of cancelled real estate projects in the emirate of Dubai and settlement of rights related thereof, specialises in liquidation of real estate projects, by which a final decision of cancellation has been issued by Real Estate Regulatory Agency (Rera), whereas the judgments, orders and decisions issued by the committee shall be final, peremptory and unappealable by all means of a regular appeal, and shall be executed by the implement Department Dubai Courts,” a statement on the Dubai Courts website said.

Dubai Courts did not respond to email and telephone requests for further information from The National, but it is widely believed that the list should provide investors in the cancelled projects with a new timeline under which refunds could be forthcoming.

The projects include a wide selection of ambitious real estate projects dreamed up by developers during the heady days of the previous property boom.

They included High Rise Properties’ Dh250 million Rotating Residence, a 16-storey freehold rotating tower of four town houses and retail areas in Jumeirah Village South that was due for completion in 2008.

Also included on the list was V-Greece on the World, a 484,882-square-foot development by V Resorts located on the south-eastern side of the Europe archipelago, which would have included 65 luxury homes that the developer was planning to rent out to tourists when not in use by buyers.

Neither High Rise Properties not V Resorts were available for comment when contacted by The National.

“This is a move in the right direction for the Dubai real estate market and should make people feel slightly more comfortable about investing in off-plan real estate,” said Craig Plumb, the head of research in JLL’s Dubai office. “However, it is disappointing that according to this list only two projects appear to have reached the end of this process when many of these investors have been seeking their money back for years.”
