With demand for quality Abu Dhabi property remaining strong among investors and end-users, we will also ramp up development activity and new project launches, particularly on the expanded strategic land bank on Saadiyat Island,” adds Al Dhiyebi.

“As we enter an exciting phase of growth, we continue to invest in talent and innovation to ensure efficient delivery of our ambitious strategy, while making strong progress on our ESG framework. By taking concrete steps on energy efficiency and carbon reduction, we aim to be a sustainability leader in the UAE in support of an inclusive, net-zero economy.”
