Only in Dubai

On Beach Road, what seem to be new villas, one of them a medical centre with an 'opening soon' banner...and they're being demolished.

Don't believe me? Click on the pic to enlarge it...

I was surprised to see this too. Lots of nice villas being ripped down. I wonder what could be built in their place that would fit in with the surroundings and give a better return on investment than what's already there?

I predict they'll be demolished and stay demolished for a while...

Those villas are only about five years old! What lunacy.

Some of them have never been inhabited. I went to the ruler's office more than a year ago and was told that they were not for rent. The built villas only to have them demolished. The same is going to happen to brand new villas on Al Wasl Road past the Iranian Consulate.

Hey, they've got to be seen to be keeping busy... even if it's for no purpose! If construction starts slowing-down for any reason, people might start gossiping after all! LOL...
