UAE property developers grow by 1,500%

The UAE‘s real estate market has seen an average company growth rate of 1,200 to 1,500 per cent in the last eight years, it has been revealed.

Statistics have been released showing the full extent of the region’s property boom, with Dubai and Abu Dhabi leading the way.

Real estate giant Fakhruddin Group said figures from Dubai‘s Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) and the Dubai Land Department reveal the number of developers and related companies in the two emirates has risen to 4,047.

Fakhruddin Properties director Ali Fakhruddin said:

“The real estate sector is attracting the attention of investors from all over the globe, due in large part to the composed projects and environment that the market provides for investment.”

He added a Manpower survey had also revealed the UAE was rated the sixth most popular work destination, and number one for workers already based in the Middle East.

The 2008 Index of Economic Freedom ranks the UAE economy as 63rd, with a percentage score of 62.8 per cent.

Last month it was revealed property prices in some parts of Abu Dhabi have rocketed by more than 100 per cent thanks to high demand and short supply.

Gulf News reported areas such as Al Raha Beach, an area developed by Aldar Properties, is among the sites experiencing the huge growth.

    Las Vegas Gaming, Leisure, Hotel, Sports Dev. Site

    We are presenting a unique project site on the Las Vegas Strip next to the MGM/Dubai/Kerzner future hotel & casino and the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino recently acquired by Goldman Sachs! You can visit for more details on this opportunity. Project “Neon Lights” is one of the most unique real estate assemblages in history containing approximately 56 net acres in the heart of the City of Las Vegas and is being offered 50% below January 2007 appraised value. The site had achieved zoning for a mixed use development including gaming, retail, condo, hotels and a 22,000 seat events arena. This property has +/-17 acres of City-owned streets and alleyways which previously had been approved for vacation and presented a +/-73 gross acre development site with a blended price of $8.3M per acre. Additionally, our site is located in a City redevelopment area and had obtained an approximate $600 Million Tax Increment Financing (TIF) package based on the tax revenue of the future development which was previously approved by the City. Furthermore, the development has potential for the City’s assistance in securing bond financing for arena construction. Project “Neon Lights” may be acquired in its entirety or in portions with financing options available. We can also introduce potential joint venture opportunities for development or with major gaming firms who have expressed an interest to manage operations.

    Please call at our US office 702.478.7000 or log on to if you are interested in more details on project “Neon Lights”. This property was recently showcased at Cityscape USA Convention in New York’s Javits Center and additional arena highlights and visuals are attached..

    Knowing your strong influence in the development field we felt that you may have, or know of someone who may have, a development project to fit on this site. Please contact me to discuss and thank you for your time.
