Abu Dhabi is a place where the lure of Arabian magic and cosmopolitan sophistication provides a
fortunate population with a highly desirable lifestyle in a stunning waterfront city with fabulous parks
and tree-lined boulevards. Abu Dhabi is the centre of government and business life in the UAE with
a population of 1.6 million. But how do you balance the rapidly increasing fortunes of a modern city
like Abu Dhabi whilst also reflecting a commitment to the environment, conserving and protecting
the milieu on behalf of its inhabitants and the wider world? A&J would like to introduce Aldar: the
Emirate’s premier real estate development management and investment company with a mission to
build Abu Dhabi’s future through communities geared for success.
Aldar is Abu Dhabi’s largest listed property developer. Since its creation, the company has been dedicated to working in
partnership with the government to develop the infrastructure necessary to support the rapid expansion of the Emirate.
Aldar has been instrumental in the creation and operation of high quality, sustainable communities. Headquartered in
Abu Dhabi, Aldar has played a leading role in the development of the capital, establishing new sectors for commerce,
housing, retail and leisure. Intrinsic to each Aldar enterprise is a strong attention to detail, an aptitude for innovation
and a determination to deliver to the highest quality. As Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Deputy CEO and Chief
Commercial Officer of Aldar, asserts: Abu Dhabi’s evolution through community development positively impacts the
lives of the people living within these communities;
“it means being determined to create comfortable homes to live in; work places to build careers and environments where they can enjoy
great experiences.”
With the delivery of ambitious projects across the full development spectrum – residential, commercial, retail, leisure,
education and health – Aldar now manages an increasingly diverse portfolio and has successfully created residential
communities, hospitals, schools and municipal buildings. It has have also built idyllic landscaped gardens, golf courses,
chic marinas, thrilling theme parks, striking office towers and sumptuous hotels. Aldar’s aim is to provide the city’s
residents, business travellers and visitors with all the amenities and conveniences of modern life whilst also reflecting the
prudence behind the growth of the city thus far to preserve the true spirit of Arabia and safeguard the region’s stunning
natural scenic splendour. Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak says;
“We have achieved a good part of this already but there are many more exciting developments to come.”
Through the quality of their leadership, Aldar aims to be held in high esteem by the real estate and financial community
as well as their customers and partners. The company has a strong dedication to optimising the personal development
of all staff through quality training.
As regular visitors to Abu Dhabi, we will be keeping a close and highly interested eye on these developments as Aldar’s
projects continue to evolve and we expect that the A&J diaries will enjoy more captivating experiences as a result. We
look forward to sharing the journey with you.
