Cayan Group is targeting Riyadh and Dubai for expansion
CAYAN Group, one of the Middle East’s leading real estate developers, is developing Dh1.2-billion ($326 million) worth of mega property projects in Dubai (UAE) and Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) this year. It has already purchased strategically located prime lands in the two cities for the premier ventures.
In Riyadh, Cayan has acquired a prime commercial plot along King Fahad Road to build a state-of-the-art office building. The company has also acquired two plots of land on Umm Suqeim Road in Dubai for its planned upscale residential and hotel apartment towers. The project will cater to the increasing demand for residential properties in the area.
Ahmed Alhatti, president and chairman of Cayan Group, says: “The strategic land purchases as well as our upcoming landmark projects in Dubai and Riyadh form part of our comprehensive plans for 2015. Our new undertakings at the start of the year are fully aligned with the booming hospitality, residential and office sectors in both cities.

Furthermore, we hope to meet the rising demand from various sectors, especially from the residential segment, by offering prime properties that meet the highest international standards.”
