Strategic Partnership between Moroccan Government and Vision3



• Deal worth US$ 1.8 billion

• Project to encourage foreign investment and tourism into Morocco




DAVOS, Switzerland 31st January 2009 - Vision3 and the Moroccan government announced today the signing of Letter of Intent (LOI) to develop a US$ 1.8 billion mixed-use health resort over a massive 270 hectare area in Essaouira, Morocco to promote tourism and foreign direct investment.

Signing the LOI on behalf of the Moroccan government was H.E. Mohammed Boussaid, Minister of Tourism and Handicrafts, and on behalf of the Vision3 alliance Mr. Mohammed Khalil Alsayed, Board Member of Vision3 and Ithmaar Development Company's Chief Executive and Member of the Board.

The LOI was signed on the sidelines of the ongoing Annual Summit of the World Economic Forum 2009 in Davos. Also present at the signing ceremony were Ithmaar BankIthmaar Bank Chairman Khalid Abdulla-Janahi, high-ranking officials from the Government of the Kingdom of Morocco and senior representatives of the Vision3 alliance. This step would be followed by the signature of a memorandum of understanding.


Following the signing ceremony, H.E. Boussaid welcomed the move and described the LOI as a step in the right direction.

"The signing of the Letter of Intent with Vision3 is a continuation of our discussions over the past few months to develop a mixed-use health resort in the Province of Essaouira," said H.E. Boussaid. "The development will not only help develop the health and wellness sector in the Kingdom of Morocco, but will also help promote health tourism, commercial and residential development sectors in Morocco," he said.

"This strategic initiative will also contribute to further stimulating the national economy through the direct employment of Moroccans," said H.E. Boussaid. "We look forward to working closely with Vision3 towards realizing the full benefit of this project," he said.

Alsayed said the project, in the South of Essaouira, will prove a landmark development and will include health and wellness as an anchor theme with surrounding tourism and other real estate developments. He added that Ithmaar Development Company is signing on behalf of the Vision3 strategic alliance which groups Ithmaar BankIthmaar Bank, Gulf Finance HouseGulf Finance House and Abu Dhabi Investment HouseAbu Dhabi Investment House.

"We are honored to partner with the Government of the Kingdom of Morocco for this prestigious mixed-use development in Essaouira which would also further strengthen the relationship between the Kingdoms of Bahrain and Morocco," said Alsayed. "We are excited about this project which signals our intention to further expand our existing geographical footprint," he said.

"We stand committed to execute this venture in keeping with best-of-breed practices in all aspects of such complex projects - and we bring with us an established track record in similar developments," said Alsayed. "We are confident that our vision for the project would further cement the status of the Medina of Essaouira as a UNESCO world heritage site," he concluded.

Anfa Place – the first project designed by Foster + Partners to break ground in Morocco!

13/02/2009
Foster + Partners unveils first development to break ground in Morocco

Anfa Place – the first project designed by Foster + Partners to break ground in Morocco - is revealed today. A luxury mixed use development overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the scheme extends the city to the coast by creating a thriving new waterfront community to the west of Casablanca.

Containing apartments, offices, shops and a 5-star hotel, the site covers more than 90,000 square metres and is connected to Casablanca’s affluent residential district of Anfa. The development is carved into the cliffside beneath the existing corniche, drawing the city towards the sea with a series of terraced interventions. Pedestrians access the apartments at roof-level, via gardens and bridges, while discreet ramps lead cars to underground parking. An elevated promenade contains a plaza with cafes, restaurants and bars and breaks down the barrier that previously existed between the road and the beach.

Anfa Place extends along the corniche, with a hotel, swimming pool, courtyards and spa facilities at the north eastern tip, while offices and a ‘business club’ – comprising shared conference facilities and office space, a pool and serviced apartments – are accommodated towards the south west. The centre of the development is occupied by seven ‘fingers’ containing 260 private apartments that extend towards the ocean, staggered and oriented to allow those furthest from the beach to have sea views.

Using local materials and simple construction techniques, the design respects the architectural vernacular. The buildings are interspersed with private courtyards and trees, offering natural shade, while protecting against the strong sea breezes. The facades are designed to promote natural ventilation, control solar gain and exploit the cooling properties of thermal mass. The hotel balconies are also shaded by delicate filigree screens for privacy.

Mouzhan Majidi, Chief Executive of Foster + Partners, said: “I am delighted to see construction begin on Anfa Place, our first project in Morocco. The development will create a new waterfront community on an area that had previously been inaccessible, extending the city towards the sea with a sensitive insertion into the coastal landscape.”
