At an incredible dinner hosted on the 12 November by the Arabian Property Awards at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, Dubai, ALARGAN International Real Estate Company collected awards for two of the group’s real estate development projects in the region: Al Nakheel Resort in Oman, and Argan Village in Bahrain, sending ALARGAN through to the International finals, to be held in London as part of the International Property Awards next month.
In the Mixed-Use Development Award category, Al Nakheel Resort was commended with the “Highly Commended” Award, for its innovative design and community setting. Al Nakheel Resort is a 500,000 square meter development situated on the gorgeous coastal area of Barka on the shores of the Gulf of Oman. This community is being developed in a mixed-use resort style, including a lagoon promenade, a shopping mall, a traditional souq, three international hotels as well as residential and commercial properties.
For Argan Village, ALARGAN received top honours in the “Best Retail Architecture” and “Best Retail Development” Award categories, hitting a 5 star top score in each award and sending ALARGAN through to the finals in London. Argan Village is a wonderfully designed retail development, merging traditionally Bahraini architectural themes with elegant décor. A well-studied combination of a park area, commercial offerings and food and beverage options, it was built to present the surrounding areas with an urban village where individuals and families can spend the whole day. These awards ultimately determine the world’s finest property development companies.
Khaled Al-Meshaan, CEO and Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of ALARGAN International Real Estate Company, expressed pride for the company’s newest achievement, saying: “These awards are due recognition of the levels of quality and luxury we aspire to every day. The Arabian Property Awards recognize only the very best projects in the market, so we are very pleased to be so highly rewarded in such a competitive region. “He added “We are also exceptionally proud to be selected to represent the region in the international awards that will be held in London, and we will strive for the title the ‘world’s best’.”
Al-Meshaan stressed that ALARGAN International Real Estate Company will continue developing prime real estate projects directed towards helping people live the life they love, focusing on fulfilling the ever shifting needs of each community and serving the group’s clients in the best possible way.
Al-Meshaan reaffirmed his sincere happiness, saying that this success was achieved through team work: “Without a good team and motivated employees, the company wouldn’t have reached this milestone.” He dedicated the award to the group’s team “for their determination to make things happen, even in the face of challenges, for always having a can-do attitude, and for meeting challenges with a positive vision.”
Hundreds of entries were received from 25 countries across the regions of Africa and Arabia. The Africa & Arabia Property Awards are judged by an independent panel of 70 industry experts. Judging focuses on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability.
The Africa & Arabia Property Awards are part of the International Property Awards – the world’s largest, most prestigious, and widely recognised programme. The ALARGAN group has been awarded honors previously within the competition, with their Jeyoun Townhouses Project in 2011, located in Bahrain.
