Al Khoori said: “We are currently exploring 23 exciting real estate developments, excluding government projects, three of which have been announced [on Monday] as part of the next phase of growth of our business... all our future developments will be carefully developed in line with market demand in Abu Dhabi. This exciting pipeline of real estate developments showcases our ability to monetise our landbank to increase cashflows, grow our recurring revenues and create value for our shareholders.”
Al Mubarak said the new projects are in locations where “we are seeing strong interest in high-quality residential property”.

We therefore expect these developments to be popular among Abu Dhabi residents and long-term investors.”
