    2. Legoland Dubai. Didn't go vertical as of yet:

  2. Legoland overload:

    Destined to form models of the Burj Khalifa and Tokyo Tower, 90 million toy bricks will be used in new Legoland Parks in Dubai, Japan and Korea by 2017, building blocks in British operator Merlin's (MERL.L) expanding empire.
    "North America, which is Lego's biggest market, has got the opportunity for us to have three more Legoland Parks," said Merlin boss Nick Varney, whose firm holds the exclusive license to operate the Lego brand from Kirkbi, its major shareholder.

    "We also think China has the opportunity to take three to five and we're looking at preliminary sites in both countries."

  5. Through its wholly-owned local subsidiary Six Construct, Dessoy said Besix had picked up a AED250-300mn ($68mn-$81mn) contract to build a LEGOLAND at the Dubai Parks & Resorts project in Jebel Ali that is being developed by Meraas. The project is being managed by Samsung.

    “The project has started already,” he said. “Mobilisation was started a month ago and the work is due to complete in two years’ time. We have about 500 people mobilised on this project.”

    Merlin Entertainments has confirmed it will go ahead with developing a Legoland in Dubai, with the park slated to open in 2016.

    “Merlin first looked at opening a Legoland in Dubai about five years ago, but then the country went into economic freefall,” media spokesperson Sally-Ann Wilkinson told Attractions Management.

    “Merlin held the option open and has now decided that it will proceed with the park, but there are no further details yet.”

    Legoland Dubai is set to open in 2016, according to Merlin Entertainments.

    In a prospectus released on Wednesday before London Stock Market debut next month, the UK-based company said it planned to open Legoland Dubai in 2016 under a deal in which it would be funded by third parties, which includes Meraas Holding.

    “The group has also entered into an agreement with, amongst others, Meraas Malls and Hospitality LLC to develop and operate Legoland Dubai under this operating model, with launch planned for 2016,” Merlin said.
