If we were talking premier league football clubs I'd be inclined to agree with you. However in this case Arab interest, which was widely reported in the press this March, does explain some things which are otherwise quite perplexing. The Octopus development has had long and arduous road to get planning permission. Having secured it, including the very controversial permission for the advertising display, construction at the site ceases. This can't be because the Octopus would be unprofitable, office rents are at record levels in West London and Chiswick Park is quickly filling up. The ad display would have brought in a huge amount of revenue even if the building was empty.

Why then the pause in the project? Arab involvement in a much larger 'statement' type scheme does make some sense. Where else would Galliard have got the capital to embark upon what I think will be the UK's largest ever predominantly residential building?
