TANGIER | Al Houara Resort (by Diar Qatari, Qatar) | 230 ha | 170 M$ | #U-C

Qatari Diar - a major global player in real estate investment - has appointed Doha-based communications agency 'grow' to deliver the branding and communication campaign for the company's first regional development in Tangier, Morocco.
Al Houara is set to be Tangier's new exclusive address and tourism hub with world-class facilities including a five-star hotel, coastal chalets, exhibition centre, golf club, restaurants and a kasbah - an ancient-style bazaar - offering traditional handicrafts.

'grow' will be responsible for developing Al Houara's brand strategy in the lead-up to the project's sales office launch, which is scheduled to open in the coming months .

'In all aspects of Qatari Diar's developments we establish new global standards from master planning to marketing by selecting agencies and partners that are high-calibre specialists in their field,' said Leanne Arnold, Director of Marketing, Qatari Diar.

'Under the direction of 'grow', Al Houara's brand will build on the benchmarks set by Qatari Diar's Lusail development, but will be unique in its own creativity and high-impact marketing,' she said.

grow's Managing Director, Anthony Ryman, added that Al Houara's branding will reflect the cultural significance of Tangier and the development's commitment to fostering a sense of community for visitors and residents.

'The Al Houara branding will echo the development's philosophy of being a sustainable community that is integrated into Tangier's historic area,' explained Ryman. 'Because we are a communications agency grounded in branding, we will develop a holistic, integrated campaign that communicates the experience that Al Houara's guests and investors can expect.'

I think this is the initial project that triggerred the attention for investment in the Tangiers area. It was the initial one, and was significant in cost; but then emaar, big Moroccan groups, and I think the Qatari group is investing more.

I guess Diar is a government owned agency? Right?

Coz I have a feeling that its only once the relationship between both kings become positive that the investment followed.

Diar is an internationally renown company, and it is free to invest all around the world. The fact that it chose the North of Morocco means that it is a profitable investment.

I dont see why it would have invested there if it was not well studied and judged lucrative. That is.... unless you work for Diar.

AL HOUARA

Location :
Tangier, Morocco

Size :
2,300,000 square metres

Development Type :
Resort

Ultimate Investment Value :
US$600 million

The powerful vision and world-class design and quality standards that Qatari Diar brings to its developments have led to the company becoming a sought-after development partner around the world.

The Moroccan government has recognized Qatari Diar’s flair for creating stunning and successful environments and has charged the company with creating a tourism and mixed-use development that will stimulate inbound investment.

Al Houara resort in Tangier is Qatari Diar’s first overseas project and is ideally suited to the company’s understanding of the Arab character.

Long popular with Europeans, Morocco is a tourist destination increasingly favoured by Arabs. And Tangier, with its fabled past as a centre for the rich and famous and its proximity to Spain, is uniquely situated as the gateway to Europe.

Al Houara will be a truly Moroccan destination, with the ancient Assilah Fort, a cultural home for artists, being the inspiration and focus for our architect. This will be a unique and natural place where visitors can have a true experience of the authentic and unique Moroccan way of life. And for residents it will combine sand and sea with forest and park, colour and vibrancy with activity and serenity.

The Al Houara site covers approximately 2,300,000 square metres and is a 20-minute drive southwest of Tangier. It boasts 2.5 kilometres of coastline, and the site rises gradually from sea level to potentially provide the majority of properties with sea views. Contained within the resort is an area of lush, natural forest.

With an investment of US$600 million, Al Houara will offer far more than the usual five-star resort. True, it will have a luxury five-star hotel with a stunning spa and a four-star hotel, 18-hole championship golf course, luxury villas and apartments and extensive leisure facilities. But it will also be a community and home to residents who want to live a traditional life in a creative atmosphere.

There will be restaurants, cafes and entertainment facilities for the guests to enjoy during their leisure time. The Kasbah for traditional and cultural handicrafts will allow them to indulge their taste for gifts and mementos and to experience the life of the souk.

An on-site exhibition and convention centre will maximize the use of rental accommodation and bring non-tourist visitors to the resort.

Al Houara will be unique in Morocco, exciting visitors with its flavour of a Moroccan village of 200 years ago while supported with the best contemporary services, infrastructure and outstanding architectural design and building quality.

Houara is a small village in the south of Tangier and it's also the name of a Berber tribe in the deep south

http://www.bled.ma/-Qatari-Diar--lan...actu-a571.html

Située près de la ville de Tanger sur une superficie de 234 ha, cette station sera prête en 2011 et comprendra une composante touristique de plus de 2.700 lits, répartis sur trois hôtels de 5 étoiles, et une composante immobilière de plus de 700 unités résidentielles (palaces, villas et appartements). Présentant ce projet à la presse, le président directeur général de "Qatari Diar", M. Nasser Al Ansari, a indiqué que la station "Al Houara-Tanger" est un projet touristique intégré qui vise essentiellement la dynamisation de l'activité touristique au Maroc et la création d'opportunités d'emploi pour les jeunes.
Outre «Al Houara-Tanger, "Qatari Diar" a programmé plusieurs autres projets à Assilah, Marrakech et Agadir, ainsi qu'une marina sur la côte méditerranéenne, a-t-il précisé. "Nous ne sommes pas au Maroc simplement pour construire une station touristique, nous sommes ici en tant que représentant du Qatar pour démontrer qu'il agit en véritable pays frère et ami", a-t-il affirmé.
La présence du groupe qatari à Tanger permettra la création de plus de 2.500 emplois directs et 4.500 autres indirects et contribuera au renouveau de l'industrie touristique de la région de Tanger, a-t-il noté dans une déclaration à la MAP.
Il a indiqué que son groupe réalisera et pour la première fois des résidences estivales dans le but d'attirer le plus grand nombre de touristes "propriétaires partiels", une nouvelle catégorie de touristes qui optent pour un séjour de longue durée.
Le choix de la ville de Tanger pour ce projet s'explique par sa position géographique caractérisée par sa proximité de l'Europe et son emplacement sur deux façades maritimes, outre les infrastructures dont elle dispose, a souligné M. Al Ansari.
Filiale du Conseil supérieur des affaires économiques et d'investissement du Qatar, la société "Qatari Diar" a été créée en décembre 2004 avec un capital de 1 milliard de dollars pour accompagner l'expansion économique rapide du pays et le doter d'une structure immobilière étudiée qui répond à ses priorités en matière de développement.
