Mohamed Alabbar, founder and chairman of Emaar Properties.

The man behind the development of the Burj Khalifa has his eyes set on Asia, Malaysia in particular.

To Mohamed Alabbar, one of the biggest names in the Arab business world, Asia is an obvious choice for his expansion, considering the huge amount of growth taking place here.

“I would like to build a new version of downtown Dubai in Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Bangkok. We have a proven model,” Alabbar tells The Star in his Dubai office on the sidelines of a media trip organised by Alabbar and his Emaar Properties company.

Already a local media report has linked Alabbar with the RM6bil Tradewinds Centreproject in Kuala Lumpur, via a natural team-up with his long time business partner Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary.

But there could be more. Insiders tell StarBizWeek that Alabbar could also be eyeing the sprawling Bandar Malaysia project by 1MDB Real Estate RE (1MDB RE). Then there is the likelihood that Alabbar could do something in Iskandar Johor.

Alabbar declines to comment on anything specific but concedes he is excited about the possibilities in Malaysia.

Alabbar and his Emaar Properties group, the company he founded in 1997 and remains in its drivers seat as chairman, are known for their audacious achievements in building key landmarks in Dubai, the world’s tallest man-made building, the Burj, and the largest shopping and entertainment project, The Dubai Mall.

The Burj is also the centrepiece for Downtown Dubai, hailed as Dubai’s most prestigious square kilometre and which is also home to the iconic Dubai Fountain and Burj Park. Part of the Burj’s development includes the Armani Hotel Dubai and the world’s highest restaurant, At.mosphere.

But perhaps the greatest achievement of this business cum residential complex is the fact that it literally “rose out of the desert” and is growing everyday.

Alabbar rattles off the numbers: on Dec 8, 2012, (exactly a year ago) Downtown Dubai enjoyed 166,000 arrivals. “Yesterday (Dec 8, 2013) we had 200,000,” he says.


Burj Khalifa.

Rashed Alabbar


As one of the most respected and prominent business figures in the Middle East, Mohamed Alabbar brings invaluable knowledge, business acumen, experience and expertise to Tradewinds International.

As Founder and Chairman of Emaar Properties, the Middle East’s premier property developer, Mr. Alabbar is the man behind prodigious projects such as the Burj Khalifa; the world’s tallest building and The Dubai Mall; the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination. Very much the visionary and pioneer, he has played a pivotal role in positioning Dubai as the world-class city that it is today. Downtown Dubai is billed as “the most prestigious square kilometre on earth” and is now known as “the new heart of Dubai”.

that's 4 years away, maybe even 3 and a half depending on when in the year, the building could be topped out in less than three years for all we know! It'll feel like it's going up in no time

Possibly another super supertall coming > 600m

NEW PLANS FOR SYED MOKHTAR'S TRADEWINDS CENTRE?

Business tycoon Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Albukhary’s planned multibillion ringgit Tradewinds Centre development in Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, may have been scrapped to make way for a project that is larger and possibly taller.

Pictured: The demolition of Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel and Kompleks Antarabangsa commenced on May 1 last year to make way for the redevelopment

that's amazing news, if it indeed goes thru, if not it is just further delaying the project, but if that all happens while there is still demolition going on that's great.

Yup AsymmetricA removed the 'plan B' render from their website immediately after that news broke out. But the new towers will be taller than the current 'plan B'.
