First, better late than never a Civil Defence facility is going up between Dubai Marina and the Tecom free zone.
For years now thousands of people have been living in apartments at the marina, visiting the shops and restaurants and working in Media City, Internet City & Knowledge Village.
There's also Jumeirah Lake Towers and Palm Jumeirah and all the development across the other side of Sheikh Zayed Road, so there's a lot of property and a very large number of people.
There have been fires in the area, including Atlantis and the fatal Fortune Towers blaze, so it's a relief to see that the area will soon be getting the protection of a local Civil Defence facility.
Then something I posted about ages ago, the demolition of Oasis Beach Hotel.
It's still going on, slowly, centimetre by centimetre, and creating a lot of dust across The Walk.
