  1. Le Cirque du Soleil à vendre ? 16 juin 2008 - 11h21 LaPresseAffaires.com Le Cirque du Soleil serait à vendre. Enfin, c’est ce qu’affirme le London Daily Telegraph dans son édition de lundi. Le populaire cirque qui a des activités partout sur le globe aurait été approché par plusieurs acheteurs potentiels notamment un groupe d’investisseurs de Dubaï. Le nom de ce possible acheteur n’est pas nommé par le quotidien anglais, mais la transaction pourrait valoir 2 G$. Nakheel PJSC, promoteur des fameuses îles de Dubaï, a déjà offert au Cirque du Soleil de construire un théâtre permanent sur un des complexes, la Palm Island. Un porte-parole du Cirque du Soleil a indiqué que la nouvelle selon laquelle la troupe aurait été approchée par Istithmar, une firme associée à Nakheel, n’est que «rumeurs et spéculations».
  2. Nakheel to build 1km-high new tower Dubai: 5 hours and 49 minutes ago Dubai-based master developer Nakheel has announced plans to build Nakheel Harbour & Tower, a new community which will boast a tower more than a kilometre high and the world’s only inner city harbour. The project, inspired by Islamic design and geometry, was launched at a VIP event hosted by Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, chairman of Dubai World. The development will cover an area of more than 270 hectares and become home to more than 55,000 people, a workplace for 45,000 more and attract millions of visitors each year. “There is nothing like it in Dubai”, Bin Sulayem said at the launch. “Nakheel Harbour & Tower is located in the heart of ‘new Dubai’, where we have focused on creating a true community, a location for living, working, relaxing and entertaining, for art and culture. All of this is concentrated in one area.” Nakheel Harbour & Tower incorporates elements from great Islamic cities of the past - the gardens of Alhambra in Spain, the harbour of Alexandria in Egypt, the promenade of Tangier in Morocco and the bridges of Isfahan in Iran. Nakheel Tower will have four individual towers within a single structure – a groundbreaking engineering feat. A distinctive crescent-shaped podium encircles the base and complements its remarkable height. Not only has a development of this shape and scale not been attempted before, but it is also a further example of Nakheel’s innovative projects that have changed the way the world looks at Dubai, he said. The multibillion dollar Nakheel Harbour & Tower development will include 250,000 sq m of hotels and hospitality space, 100,000 sq m of retail space and huge expanses of green spaces including canal walks, parks and landscaping. The new development is geographically central to the Emirate of Dubai, at the intersection of Sheikh Zayed Road and the Arabian Canal; and will also complement Nakheel’s surrounding developments including Jumeirah Park, Jumeirah Islands, Discovery Gardens and Ibn Battuta shopping mall. The Nakheel Harbour & Tower development minimises car use and maximises train, bus and water transportation. A complete transportation hub blends into the harbour area with metro transportation combined with a unique water transport interchange, with Abra and Dhow station links. Sustainability and safety will be key to the planning and design of Nakheel Harbour & Tower, with the latest standards and technology incorporated in the development. “It sends another message to the world that Dubai has a vision like no other place on earth.” FACT SHEET • The project will take in excess of 10 years to complete, but completion will be phased, with various stages coming on line much earlier • The project location is at the intersection of Sheikh Zayed Road and the Arabian Canal, with Waterfront to the west and Deira to the east • It will cover an area over 270 hectares • It includes the world’s only inner city harbour • It includes a tower that will be more than a kilometre high • Apart from the Nakheel Tower there will also be another 40 towers ranging in height from 20 floors to 90 floors (250 meters to 350 meters) • Nakheel Harbour & Tower will be home to more than 55,000 people and a work place for more than 45,000 people • There will be more than 19,000 residential apartments.

As one of the unique features of this development, the canal promenade will connect Sheikh Zayed Road to Emirates Road through a myriad of urban experiences and spectacular views to the Tower • Internal public space: while every block will be identifiable by a unique common internal open space, a series of distinctive neighbourhoods are planned.

  3. Nakheel, le plus important promoteur immobilier sur la planète, construira un théâtre de 1800 places spécialement à l'intention du Cirque du Soleil sur The Palm Jumereirah, un site exceptionnel situé à Dubaï dans les Émirats Arabes. Le Cirque du Soleil et Nakheel ont signé hier une entente de 15 ans qui prévoit que ce spectacle, le premier spectacle permanent du Cirque présenté à l'extérieur des États-Unis, du Japon et de la Chine, prendra l'affiche à l'automne 2010. Soulignons que ce partenariat s'inscrit dans la foulée du succès remporté par Quidam, un spectacle de tournée du Cirque du Soleil qui a été présenté au début 2007 devant plus de 100 000 personnes sous l'immense chapiteau installé au Ibn Batuta Mall. " Dubaï est l'une des villes qui se développent le plus rapidement au monde. Comme toute ville connaissant un tel essor et se voulant une destination internationale du 21e siècle, Dubaï a besoin d'installations culturelles et municipales. Avec plus de 30 hôtels cinq étoiles (plus de 14 000 chambres), The Palm Jumeirah était l'endroit tout indiqué pour accueillir le Cirque du Soleil ", a indiqué le sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, président exécutif de Nakheel. Le président et chef de la direction du Cirque du Soleil, Daniel Lamarre, se réjouit de la signature de cette entente qui permettra à l'entreprise de développer un nouveau marché. " Nous sommes constamment à l'affût de nouveaux marchés pour des spectacles permanents, mais ce n'est pas facile de trouver un endroit où le taux d'achalandage est suffisant " a expliqué M.Lamarre qui se dit confiant que cette nouvelle production saura captiver l'imagination de millions de spectateurs comme c'est le cas avec O, un spectacle permanent présenté à Las Vegas qui a été vu par plus de six millions de personnes en huit ans.
