“Emaar Properties is one of the world’s most valuable and admired real estate development companies. With proven competencies in properties, retail destinations, hospitality and leisure, the group shapes new lifestyles with a focus on design excellence, build quality and timely delivery. Since its founding in 1997 by His Excellency Chairman Mohamed Alabbar, the game-changing developer has become synonymous with record-breaking structures, exceptionally built communities and top-rated lifestyle and entertainment destinations. The group’s flagship project, Downtown Dubai, encompasses Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest structure, The Dubai Mall, the world’s most visited retail and lifestyle destination and the Dubai Fountain, the world’s tallest performing fountain. The newest addition to Emaar’s remarkably diverse portfolio is the cultural beacon of Dubai, the Dubai Opera. However, the Emaar brand stands for much more than record-breaking structures. The company has set an impressive track-record in delivering master-planned communities that provide residents with a true sense of belonging in homes set around picturesque settings. The group’s developments such as Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina and Arabian Ranches are today’s Dubai’s iconic communities and the preferred choice of investors and renters alike. Emaar’s newest master developments, Dubai Hills Estate, Emaar Beachfront and Emaar South, will further expand the group’s portfolio.
