Land and Real Estate

Building Future Communities

Alongside booming population growth and the corresponding need for housing, the MENAT region is positioned to meet the need for infrastructural development to keep pace with the growing economy.

As one of Saudi Arabia’s leading land and property developers, we are addressing these needs by delivering pleasing environments for residential and commercial purposes. It is our goal to enrich the daily experiences and future of the community by enhancing public and private spaces and making them more accessible to all.

In 2012, we anticipated the needs of Saudi Arabia’s rising population and growing urbanization by establishing Abdul Latif Jameel’s land and real estate development company.

Today, our property portfolio consists of hundreds of buildings, including corporate offices, showrooms, workshops, training facilities, and operational centers across the MENAT region, Europe and Eastern Asia.

Within the next five years, we’re committed to growth, significantly increasing the number of projects to our portfolio, ranging from the refurbishment and construction of our own properties, to participating in ambitious national projects, such as the King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) and the development of a new class of high quality, contemporary and affordable middle-income housing.

At the heart of our developments is our commitment to enabling a better way of life in the communities that we serve. We strive to provide an enhanced lifestyle experience wherever we work, play or live, by understanding the needs and expectations of our customers, employees and partners.

As an environmentally conscious business, sustainability is an integral part of our strategy and we’re driving energy efficiency across our portfolio in materials and techniques.

In 2016, Abdul Latif Jameel was named the newest Innovation Member of the New Cities Foundation, a global platform for innovation and exchange on the future of cities.

We have built strong relationships with industry-leading architects and masterplan designers which, coupled with our own experience and expertise, mean that we have the proven capability to deliver iconic and world-class real estate developments. Learn more about Abdul Latif Jameel Land here.

Off-Site Manufacturing

We’re exploring innovative construction methods to develop individual modules for residential housing units in Saudi Arabia, and beyond.

With one of the most rapidly expanding populations in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia is currently experiencing a significant supply-demand gap in affordable, quality homes for middle-income families.

By exploring pre-fabricated off-site manufacturing methods we're striving to fulfill this demand by developing the individual units required to build high quality, energy efficient residential housing, in a short time-frame, and at an affordable cost.
