Can we see plans for Ma­rina Yacht Club site?

7 Days in Dubai - - EVENTS -

I found out to­day that Dubai Ma­rina Yacht Club - THE most iconic build­ing in the Ma­rina (and a big rea­son I bought my cur­rent apart­ment) is go­ing to close in the first quar­ter of 2017. Zero con­sul­ta­tion. The press says that it will be re­placed with bet­ter, but for­give me if I am scep­ti­cal! Where is the pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion and where are the plans? The author­i­ties have al­lowed build­ings on three ad­ja­cent struc­tures to my own to re­main in­com­plete for nearly 10 years. One of th­ese de­vel­op­ments is quite hideous and I have no idea how it ob­tained plan­ning per­mis­sion, and I now am ex­pected to ac­cept this change to the Yacht Club with­out com­plaint. Do I have any choice? Does any­one else feel like I do?
