Iraqi Kurdistan Cancels Damac's $15 Billion Development, National Reports

Iraqi Kurdistan canceled a 55 billion dirham ($15 billion) real estate project by Damac Properties, the Dubai-based developer, because the company never started work after the global financial crisis, The National reported, citing a Kurdish official.

The company can propose a smaller project, Hayder Mustafa Saaid, a director general at the Kurdistan regional government’s investment board, told The National. Damac confirmed its construction license had been canceled, the newspaper reported.
