Ritz Residence: Hapless investors left in the dark as power connection remains elusive

10/04/2009 11:38 PM

Dubai: Investors in the Ritz Residence, situated in International City Phase 3, must wait another six months to move into their units because Dubai Water and Electricity Authority (Dewa) connections are yet to be completed.

Mohammad Al Shirbiny, senior sales officer at ECC, the owners of the building, contacted investors in June promising them that everything would be resolved by the end of that month.

"As per the assurance from Nakheel, we will get [the] Dewa connection on June 30, 2009 so we are expecting to open the building in the first week of July 2009," Al Shirbiny said then.

However, the Dewa connection remains incomplete and some investors are getting increasingly frustrated.

The investors are not ready to pay for temporary accommodation elsewhere in addition to paying for units that are not yet ready.

"I cannot sign a contract because I don't know what the situation is," one investor told Gulf News.

To lay down the electricity cables, the RTA requires the cross section drawing of the plot which neither ECC or Nakheel, the master developer, has.

The drawings apparently are still in the possession of the contractor, Bovis.

However, the termination of Bovis' services by Nakheel has led to a stalemate.

Al Shirbiny said investors would have to wait "a minimum" of six months before everything is completed.

Investors say that Bovis will not give the drawings to the developer, Nakheel, as they are still owed payment for their services.

However, Paul Redstone, Bovis regional director, Middle East and area manager in the UAE, said the company does not have the drawings as they are no longer working on the project after having been let go by Nakheel.

"We were the project managers but our services were terminated. Go into Phase 3 now and most of the infrastructure is there to be seen. There is quite a lot under construction but there are some areas of road where asphalt hasn't been completed& Nakheel need to talk to Dewa to get the substation (activated) and then Dewa can lay the cables and apply for power," Redstone said.
