Dubai-based Samana Developers entered into a key partnership with H&S Real Estate on Thursday in Dubai to foray into Pakistan’s burgeoning real estate market.
The partnership has launched "Emirates Developers," a new real estate development company incorporated in Pakistan. Emirates Developers will build mixed-used resort-themed communities in the tourist hotspots of Pakistan.
Emirates Developers will build a series of projects in Pakistan. The new company will launch first mega project at a tourist hotspot of Pakistan in January 2022.
The agreement signing ceremony was witnessed by Hassan Afzal Khan, Consul-General of Pakistan to Dubai, along with officials of the Consulate General of Pakistan, Samana Developers and H&S Real Estate.
Afzal Khan said, “It is a proud moment for all of us and for the Pakistani community in Dubai that we are witnessing a double success story of Samana Developers and H&S Real Estate going to be replicated in Pakistan.”
Imran Farooq, CEO of Samana Developers, said: “We are coming to Pakistan with high ambitions and bullish mindset. Despite the drop in currency, Pakistan’s real estate market is quite attractive with year-on-year growth projection as we see Pakistan’s population, which needs housing, continues to grow.”
“We are not only developing another brick-and-mortar project but a lifestyle development with state-of-the-art amenities at par with the international standards, which we have achieved in Dubai. I believe today’s developers need to think outside the box to fill the gap between innovation, lifestyle and construction. That’s what we practiced in Dubai with Samana Developers. It gives a solid reason to buyers and end-users to invest in our projects. Our end-user business model has helped to be resilient during the Covid-19 pandemic. During the lockdown, we kept on building, and did not stop which continued the workflow, hence, cashflow from buyers to vendors.”
He added: “We had a choice of choosing a plot for single building but that would not be a lifestyle. That is the reason we picked up a cluster of large plots to create a community with facilities and amenities required for a good lifestyle. Anything one needs in a five-star hotel, will be available in the premium Emirates Developers projects at prime locations in Pakistan.”
Emad Haq, Vice-Chairman, H&S Real Estate, said: “We believe it is a perfect synergy of two property experts with international experience – Emirates Developers and H&S Real Estate – who will present a living experience in Pakistan which will be unmatched. With group’s 50 plus years of combined experience in residential and commercial luxury real estate development, Emirates Resort project will be a jewel in the heart of beautifully landscaped Islamabad in close proximity to Murree, the lush green resort town in Pakistan.”
The active and fruitful contribution to the sales of the project, which is being developed by "Green Yard Properties Development," resulted in snatching the award by "W Capital" who topped in terms of the value of sold units.
The Dubai property market is on a solid growth and is marching ahead bucking the global trends. The realty market is active in the recent weeks due to an increase in demand for housing units, in line with the success of Dubai Expo 2020.
The real estate bulletin showed that real estate transactions in Q1 2021 achieved a significant growth of 27 per cent and 47 per cent compared to Q1 2020 and Q1 2019, respectively.
