Now Is The Time For Developers To Press Ahead On Quality, Standards And Transparency In Property Development, Says Sorouh Chief Property Development Officer
(17 November 2008)


The current global economic situation offers positive opportunities for Abu Dhabi’s developers to press ahead with implementing quality, standards and transparency in property development said Gurjit Singh, Chief Property Development Officer at Sorouh Real Estate PJSC, in a speech to the Working Buildings Middle East conference today. Mr Singh said:“We’re seeing some positive opportunities from the current global situation and its impact on the real estate market, to improve the delivery system’s quality, standard and transparency through sustainable place making and place management, the building blocks of which are already encapsulated in the Abu Dhabi 2030 Framework Plan. “Real estate has a long term investment horizon and with the current global re-pricing of risks, developers are restructuring their approach and placing stronger emphasis on the delivery aspects to its customers.” “In Abu Dhabi, we are particularly fortunate to have some strong fundamentals underpinning the real estate sector. These fundamentals of continued population growth, and planned development strategy based on the Abu Dhabi 2030 Plan coupled with a real estate supply lag provides ample opportunity to fill the end user occupier demand gap. The last mile now needs the urgent unlocking of liquidity in the financial system to the real estate sector”. Mr. Singh said developers should focus their efforts in two areas: on coupling both existing customers and potential end user occupiers with liquidity.

He said: “This is a good time for developers to press ahead with projects which will bring new residential units to the market over the next two to three years for end user occupiers. There is clear demand for them in spite of the global situation. “And well capitalised developers which have adequate funding in place, should continue invest in core infrastructure to ensure this is in place in the medium and long term to take advantage of the next real estate cycle”. Mr Singh said Sorouh was pressing ahead on all its projects to ensure continued contribution to Abu Dhabi’s planned development over the next few years. Mr Singh was speaking at the Working Buildings Middle East conference, which is being held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
