عارضون يستعرضون نخبة مشاريعهم العقارية في سيتي سكيب أبوظبي

خطط الدفع ما بعد التسليم حاضرة في المعرض في الوقت الذي يكيف فيه العارضون أنفسهم لاستقطاب المزيد من المستثمرين

أبوظبي، الإمارات العربية المتحدة، 10 أبريل 2017: بدأت شركات التطوير العقاري في الإمارات استعداداتها لانطلاق معرض سيتي سكيب أبوظبي هذا الشهر وعرض مجموعة مشاريعها السكنية الرائدة داخل الإمارة وخارجها للمستثمرين.

وتستثمر راك العقارية، الشركة العقارية الرائدة في إمارة رأس الخيمة، في العديد من المشاريع ذات الأهمية في مختلف أنحاء دولة الإمارات تتضمن إعلانها الأخير عن مشروع جزيرة صغيرة في ميناء العرب تبلغ تكاليفها 5 مليارات درهم إماراتي. وستقوم شركة التطوير العقاري باستغلال مشاركتها في المعرض العقاري لتسليط الضوء على قائمة مشاريعها المتنامية.

ومن بين المشاريع التي سوف تستعرضها شركة راك العقارية للمستثمرين خلال مشاركتها في الدورة الـ 11 من سيتي سكيب أبوظبي، الذي يقام بين 18 و20 أبريل في مركز أبوظبي الوطني للمعارض، مشروع “غايت واي ريزيدنس” على جزيرة ميناء العرب الصغيرة، أول مشروع برج سكني غير شاهق، والذي يتضمن 144 شقة فاخرة للعائلات الصغيرة.

وتعليقا على الموضوع، قال محمد سلطان القاضي، المدير العام والرئيس التنفيذي لشركة راك العقارية، أكبر شركة تطوير عقاري في إمارة رأس الخيمة مسجلة في بورصة أبوظبي: “بعد أن تمكنا من ترسيخ مكانتنا كأفضل المطورين العقارين في إماراتنا الأم، بدأنا في راك العقارية العمل على توسيع قائمة مشاريعنا العقارية. بالطبع خلال السنوات الخمس القادمة سنقوم بالاستثمار في المشاريع التي من شأنها أن تحول وجه المشهد السياحي والسكني في إمارة رأس الخيمة، مع خطط لتسليم أكثر من 600 وحدة وافتتاح أول مركز اجتماعي وترفيهي في الإمارة، على جزيرة ميناء العرب”.

ومن بين المشاريع السكنية التي سوف يتم تسليط الضوء عليها في المعرض، مشروع مدينة تلال المتعدد الاستخدامات والذي يتيح الفرصة لشراء الأراضي وبناء العقارات للمرة الأولى في الإمارة بعقد تملك لمدة 100 سنة لجميع الجنسيات، وتملك حر للعرب.

ويعتبر مشروع مدينة تلال الذي تطوره تلال العقارية على مساحة 25 مليون قدم مربع في الشارقة، أول مشروع مخطط بالكامل في الإمارة، ويضم 1855 قطعة أرض مخصصة للفلل والبيوت والمباني السكنية والمتعددة الاستخدامات.

وحسب المخطط سيتمكن حوالي 65000 شخص من العيش في المدينة بدون دفع أية رسوم خدمية أو مجتمعية، وسوف يحاط المشروع بالحدائق وسيضم مركزا للتسوق وفندقا من فئة الخمس نجوم، وسيتم تمويله بالكامل من بنك الشارقة الإسلامي.

وقال جوردان غونوف، مدير المبيعات لدى تلال العقارية: “ارتفعت قيمة الأراضي التي تم شرائها نظرا لسرعة عمليات استكمال البنية التحتية، بالإضافة إلى البدء بعمليات بناء تلال مول. الأراضي المخصصة للفلل والبيوت في المنطقة سيتم بيعها بالكامل بالإضافة لبيع ما نسبته 80% من قطع الأراضي المحيطة بمركز التسوق في المنطقة أ. ونتوقع مزبدا من الاهتمام والمبيعات خلال هذا العام ونتطلع قدما لاستعراض المشروع في سيتي سكيب أبوظبي”.

من جهتها وأثناء تحضيرها لاستعراض المنازل الفاخرة على الواجهة المائية، والمتوفرة حصريا لمواطني دولة الإمارات، وصفت الشركة الوطنية للاستثمار، التي تم تأسيسها لتطوير منطقة الكاسر في أبوظبي، القطاع العقاري في الدولة بالحيوي. وستركز الشركة الوطنية للاستثمار خلال مشاركتها في سيتي سكيب أبوظبي على مشروع “فيرمونت مارينا ريزيدنسيز”، الذي يضم 249 شقة مفروشة ومخدومة بالكامل، ومشروع مارينا صنسيت باي، الذي يضم 67 فيلا فاخرة على البحر، والمتاحان للمواطنين الإماراتيين فقط.

وقالت كلايري مينيلاو، أحد كبار المحللين الاستثماريين في الشركة الوطنية للاستثمار: “السوق العقاري في الإمارات أثبت قدرته والاستقرار الذي تعيشه الأسواق الآن سيساهم في مواصلة جذب المستثمرين”.

ومع زيادة وعي المستثمرين ومعرفتهم بالأسواق، بات على المطورين تبني معايير جديدة وإضافية لاستقطاب المستثمرين. وكمثال على هذا، تقوم شركة “بانكي إنترناشونال بروبرتيز” بعرض خطط للدفع بعد التسليم في اثنين من مشاريعها التطويرية في دبي واللذان ستعرضهما في سيتي سكيب أبوظبي – إيه جي تور في منطقة الخليج التجاري، وكاسيا ذا فيلدز في ميدان.

REAL ESTATE SECTOR DOMINATES ABU DHABI FOREIGN INVESTMENT

REAL ESTATE SECTOR DOMINATES ABU DHABI FOREIGN INVESTMENT

Property laws and regulations increase investor confidence as developers prepare to launch new projects at Cityscape Abu Dhabi next month

Abu Dhabi, UAE, 19th March, 2017: Foreign investors continue to pour billions into the Abu Dhabi real estate market, as new international standards and property regulations increase investor confidence in the sector.

According to Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) investors outside of the UAE pumped $40.3m last month into the UAE capital, with the real estate market taking the lion’s share of 44.61% of the total shares.
GCC and foreign investors will be able to capitalise on the wealth of global investment opportunities at the 11th edition of Cityscape Abu Dhabi, which takes place from 18-20 April at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

With Aldar, Wahat Al Zaweya, National Investment Corporation, Cathay Invest Gayrimenkul Gelistirme A.S, Housing Development Corporation, Al-Za’ed Al-Aqari, Bloom Properties and a host of other local and international developers set to launch their latest projects at the three-day show, industry experts believe the new property laws are vital for the sustainability of the market.

Robert Jackson, RICS Regional Director and speaker at the new Cityscape Talks this year said: “The introduction and adoption of International Standards and regulations are absolutely critical to the development of the market in the Middle East.

“Measuring and valuing construction projects and real estate consistently is a complete game changer and a catalyst for developing internationally competitive real estate markets in this region. It is important the region is ‘talking the same language’ as the rest of the world relating to standards, metrics and regulations.
Jackson added: “As the Abu Dhabi economy diversifies and real estate becomes an increasingly important component of that diversification, transparency, standards, regulations and robust but fair dispute resolution provide investors and corporate occupiers and end-users confidence in the market. Standards mitigate risk of delays and disputes and help drive efficiency into the sector.”

With sales permitted directly from exhibitor stands, in accordance with the rules and regulations administered by the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC), over a hundred companies and brokers have confirmed their participation at the capitals largest real estate show next month.

Rami Hreiki, Chief Development Officer, Bloom Properties said: “The UAE real estate market is showing some significant signs of improvement. Investors have to be more opportunistic to maximize their investment returns. This requires careful alignment of investment strategies with market requirements and client needs.

“The right approach in this regard will depend on the objectives and priorities of each investor. In the build-up to Expo 2020, we expect to witness a lot of development activity, and the impact of the event on real estate prices will largely depend on supply and demand dynamics. The government has provided a strong regulatory framework with the introduction of the new property regulation last year.  The law has provided a strong boost to the sector and has given more confidence to buyers and investors.”

Further highlighting the increased investor confidence in the market from the new property laws, Talal Al Dhiyebi, Chief Development Officer, Aldar said: “There has been a significant amount of investment in Abu Dhabi, increasing its desirability for residents and tourists and Aldar is a central facilitator in its transformation. Initiatives such as the recently implemented Abu Dhabi real estate law show that the government is committed to a fair and transparent property market, encouraging local and international investment alike.

“We continue to see strong demand for high quality homes, offices and leisure destinations, and this is supported by the performance of our current developments in the market, which still outperform the wider residential market.”
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the show will see the return of the Cityscape Abu Dhabi Conference featuring a range of unique topics and speakers providing valuable insight into the capital’s real estate market.

The free to attend Cityscape Talks will also be making their debut at the show after proving to be a big hit at Cityscape Global last year and will offer live content direct from the show floor as well as industry sessions focusing on key themes for real estate brokers, architects, engineers and other professionals.

Bringing together investors, developers, government officials and real estate professionals alike, the UAE capital’s largest and most influential property investment and development event is gearing up for a successful edition, with international developers attending the show from more than ten different countries.

FREE ZONE CREATION AND TRANSPARENCY WILL ENSURE GROWTH OF UAE CAPITAL’S REAL ESTATE SECTOR

FREE ZONE CREATION AND TRANSPARENCY WILL ENSURE GROWTH OF UAE CAPITAL’S REAL ESTATE SECTOR

Cityscape Abu Dhabi Conference speakers discuss new investment opportunities as foreign interest continues to rise
Abu Dhabi, UAE, 10 March, 2017: Improving the transparency of the market and creating free zones will be key to attracting foreign investment into the Abu Dhabi real estate sectors says industry expert.

With the growth of Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) in the Emirate increasing by 7% last year according to the Statistics Centre – Abu Dhabi (SCAD), the government is making extensive efforts to improve standards, regulations and buying opportunities, motivating foreign companies and individuals to continue investing in the local economy.

Supporting the creation of new investment environments will be one of the key topics debated at the Cityscape Abu Dhabi Conference next month, taking place on the first day of Cityscape Abu Dhabi, which runs from 18-20 April at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

With more than 25 free zones in Dubai, compared to Abu Dhabi’s five, Craig Plumb, Head of Research at JLL and moderator at the conference, believes the concept of free zones needs to be developed further to enhance the capital’s residential, office, commercial and warehouse real estate sectors.

“The concept of free zones is more advanced in Dubai and in order to redress this balance between the two emirates, Abu Dhabi needs to develop its existing free zones more aggressively and consider launching additional free zones for those industries that it seeks to promote under the 2030 vision, said Plumb.

“Free zones will attract additional investment and employment as they create hubs of similar activities and generate a simplified regulatory environment, with lower operating costs and greater freedoms.

“Currently the market is going through a cycle, which is perfectly normal for any real estate industry worldwide. For buyers who are looking at the property sector as a long term investment now is the perfect time to buy. As the UAE market grows and matures the volatility of the sector will decline, making returns more stable and predictable, which in itself will attract more investors,” added Plumb.

The Cityscape Abu Dhabi conference, hosted in collaboration with JLL, will also explore emerging trends that are redefining investment opportunities in Abu Dhabi’s hospitality sector, with a particular focus on upcoming landmark projects that are creating new avenues for stakeholders and investors.

Omar Al Busaidy, Abu Dhabi Experience Development Unit Head at Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority will deliver a key note speech and provide an exclusive insight into destination Abu Dhabi and how building new investment hotspots and creating long term management prospects is key to creating an attractive hub for local and international real estate investors.

“Partnership with the private sector is one of the guiding principles in our tourism growth strategy, and the development of a set of distinct districts with clear value propositions for tourists across all three regions of the Emirate focusing on cultural, leisure and nature offerings has been identified as core deliverable to achieve this,” said Al Busaidy.

“Implementing a zonal tourism development model to develop attractions and experiences in harmony with or emphasising the area’s business, geographical or natural assets acts as a catalyst for SME business development opportunities and our Tourism Investment Promotion service allows us to foster partnerships between international investors and local entrepreneurs.”

David Dudley, Regional Director of JLL and headline speaker at the Cityscape Abu Dhabi Conference will reveal the recent performance of each real estate sector for the first quarter of 2017 and discuss the best investment opportunities with key industry players.

“Abu Dhabi’s market experienced a very major upswing from 2013 to 2014, led by the residential sales market, with prime residential prices growing at 25% per annum, the pace of which was unsustainable,” Dudley said.

Cityscape Abu Dhabi will provide the perfect platform for investors to find opportunities across all price points in the region, as well as the latest international developments, as more than 130 exhibitors from around the world come together to showcase their latest projects.

“Investment opportunities remain, particularly for existing income producing assets – and we continue to see keen interest from investors taking a longer term view on the future growth potential. Key opportunities are to acquire income producing assets or to enter in to build to suit arrangements with corporate tenants – targeting functional real estate in established locations which will sustain high occupancy levels,” Dudley added.

Other prominent speakers at the conference include Maan Al Awlaqi, Director of Aldar Properties, Mohammed Al Fardan, Director of Masdar City Free Zone, Ann Boothello, Senior Marketing Manager at Dubizzle and Sean Magee, Senior Legal Counsel, TwoFour54.

AFFORDABILITY AT THE FOREFRONT: HOSPITALITY, RESIDENTIAL SECTORS SHIFT FOCUS FOR TOURISTS INFLUX

AFFORDABILITY AT THE FOREFRONT: HOSPITALITY, RESIDENTIAL SECTORS SHIFT FOCUS FOR TOURISTS INFLUX

Cityscape Abu Dhabi returns with new features and highlights across 18,000sqm of exhibition space

Abu Dhabi, UAE, 22 February, 2017: The demand for affordable lodging is now fiercer than ever, say industry experts, as Abu Dhabi sets its sights on welcoming 7.9 million annual tourists to the region by 2030.

With an estimated 74,000 hotel rooms required to host the influx of visitors, leading international architectural and design practice Godwin Austen Johnson (GAJ) are seeing a shift towards more mid-market brands and price points, as they prepare to showcase a number of hospitality projects at Cityscape Abu Dhabi from 18 – 20 April at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

Simon Chambers, Partner at GAJ, said: “Abu Dhabi is already home to a number of luxury hotels but if the capital is to develop its tourism product to meet the forecasted figures by 2030, it will need to continue building its portfolio of affordable business and city hotels.”

With figures gathered by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture showing that more than 4.4 million guest arrivals were recorded in the emirate over the course of last year, an 8% growth over 2015, Chambers believes visitor numbers will continue to rise over 2017.

“The Middle East shows consistent year-on-year growth and we are confident that the number of business and leisure travellers across the region will grow in line with booming economies, calling for more accessible quality hotels,” Chambers added.

The rising number of tourists is expected to spur capital chasing opportunities for investors in non-traditional channels, such as affordable, short-term holiday rentals like Airbnb and serviced apartments, which promises growth for investors looking to diversify their portfolio by seeking high yield returns from these dynamic rentals.

The three day Cityscape Abu Dhabi, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, will showcase hundreds of investment opportunities for buyers across all price points in the region as well as the latest international developments.

Capitalising on the growth across the capital, leading architectural company, Aidea Inc will be launching their first international branch at the show, in a bid to bring the latest technology and design process to the market.

“Abu Dhabi is set to become the next highly urbanized commercial and tourist hub in the world,”
Abelardo M. Tolentino, Jr, CEO and President, Aidea Inc said. “The building industry has and always been at the forefront of developing tourism everywhere and it should continue to explore the ideas that excite the cultural diversity amidst growing globalization, as this will ensure a steady influx of visitors and residents over the next few years to the emirate. Technology, sustainability and energy efficiency will be key in this process.”

With affordability becoming a major focus for the hospitality sector to attract tourists, a shift towards low-middle income housing in the residential market is also proving to be a priority to meet the growing demand of expatriates.

Dr Kyriazis, Assistant Professor at Abu Dhabi University and speaker at this year’s new show floor feature Cityscape Talks, believes affordable housing is an attractive target for developers of all magnitudes.

“High-end architecture will always be part of the picture but what would benefit the city most is the development of our public spaces and low to middle income housing,” Kyriazis said.

“Affordable housing will be the answer to help ease the pressure applied by the increase in living costs. Combined with the need to control urban sprawl, this could be a game-changer for mid-value quality housing and a lucrative market for the main real estate players.”

The free to attend Cityscape Talks will run throughout the exhibition offering information for visitors and industry experts across a wide range of topics straight from the show floor, while the Cityscape Abu Dhabi Conference will return with a host of leading speakers who will focus on Destination Abu Dhabi: Investment opportunities in Abu Dhabi’s hospitality and free zones.

With hundreds of developments from Abu Dhabi and overseas being showcased, new exhibitors to the 11th edition include Al Sharq, the National Investment Corporation and Tiger Properties.

Manazel Real Estate, Aldar Properties, Eagle Hills, Mubadala, RAK Properties, Tilal Properties and United Gulf Properties are just some of the leading exhibitors gearing up for the UAE capital’s largest and most influential property investment and development event.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Cityscape Abu Dhabi will span more than 18,000 square metres of dedicated exhibition space this year, providing an unrivalled platform for local and international developers to launch and showcase projects across the residential, leisure, retail and hospitality sectors.

The agenda will explore emerging trends that are redefining investment opportunities in the UAE capital, with a particular focus on upcoming iconic hospitality, entertainment, retail and leisure projects.

Keynote presentations will be delivered by David Dudley, International Director and Head of Abu Dhabi Office, JLL, and Omar Al Busaidy, Abu Dhabi Experience Development Unit Head, Tourism and Culture Authority Abu Dhabi.

A panel session called ‘Destination Abu Dhabi: establishing an attractive hub for local and international real estate investors’ will explore tourism, culture and hospitality opportunities in Abu Dhabi and is expected to be a big draw for conference delegates with confirmed speakers from Aldar Properties and the Tourism and Culture Authority Abu Dhabi.

The programme will conclude with another high level discussion on how free zones are fostering the investment environment, with confirmed speakers including senior leadership from Masdar Free Zone, TwoFour54 and Bloom Properties.

The free to attend Cityscape Talks will offer live content direct from the show floor, covering a range of themes for visitors, including how to maximise real estate investment, discussing market trends, important information before finalising a purchase and networking with potential business contacts, while the industry sessions will focus on key themes for real estate brokers, architects, engineers and other professionals.
