Nakheel signs MOU with KSA’s Al Akaria for new real estate projects across Riyadh


March 13, 2016 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai-based master developer Nakheel is taking its real estate development expertise to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia where it will provide technical support to leading Saudi developer Al Akaria for a range of new, mixed-use projects in and around Riyadh.

The two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) under which Nakheel will apply its entire range of skills, including master planning, design, construction management, mall design and management, hospitality projects and leasing.

“Nakheel is a proven leader in the delivery of world-class developments that set new standards in creativity, design and engineering. We are delighted to take our unrivalled know-how, experience and expertise to KSA and to work with another leader, Al Akaria, as it expands its development project portfolio,” says Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah.

“Al Akaria is embarking on a large and rapid expansion. We selected Nakheel to enable us to kick-start and speed up these new projects, and have every confidence in its ability to help us deliver. We look forward to drawing on Nakheel’s extensive expertise now and in the future through a long-term partnership,” adds Al Akaria chairman Abdulrahman Almofadhi.

An estimated three million new housing units are needed in KSA by 2025 to keep up with the country’s rapidly-growing population, expected to touch 37 million over the next 10 years.

Among the new projects is Al Wasl, a 7,000 hectare integrated master development with thousands of homes, north-west of the Saudi Arabian capital.

Other upcoming developments by Al Akaria include a new luxury residential project with 358 homes in Riyadh’s Diplomatic Quarter; The Village, a new gated community with nearly 1,100 residential units, mosques, schools, shopping centres and parks; and a 10,000 hectare development with hotel, serviced apartment, retail, office and leisure components.
