Bloom Properties plans Dh1.8bn projects in Al Ain

on Tuesday, May 13, 2008

Two residential and commercial projects worth Dh1.8 billion are to be developed in Al Ain by the newly renamed Bloom Properties.

The company – formerly Emirates International Properties – is the joint real estate development arm of the Emirates International Investment Company and National Holding.

Master plans for the projects have been drawn up, Samir Zidan, general manager for development, told Emirate Business.

"A new community development of different types of residential units with all neighbourhood services and facilities will be developed on a 22-acre plot of land in a prime location in Al Ain," he said.

"The project will be developed at a cost of Dh1bn. The other project, a mixed-use development on a 17-acre site, will cost an estimated Dh800 million."

He said the mixed-use development will include a five-star hotel, furnished and serviced apartments, shopping and restaurant facilities, retail chains and leisure facilities. It would be built near the InterContinental hotel, while the community project was being built in the Muwaiji area. Both complexes were being built on sites owned by Bloom.

CEO Dr Hani Shammah said Bloom was currently developing a multi-billion-dollar portfolio of large-scale, mixed-use, master planned communities that were strategically located across the region and beyond. The total value of current projects was more than $10bn (Dh36.7bn).

Multi-use schemes under construction include the recently announced Abu Dhabi Marina, a mixed-use community located in the capital's Al Bateen area and Bloom Gardens on the Eastern Ring Road.
"Sales of Bloom Gardens will be launched in June this year," said Dr Shammah. "It will be a luxury residential community with 600 apartments and villas located in the heart of Abu Dhabi." The project is being developed at a cost of Dh900m on a 280,000 sq m plot. Construction will be completed within eight or nine months of its commencement.

The CEO said Bloom plans to enter new growth markets outside the UAE. "The new brand reflects our aspiration to become a leading developer in new growth markets ranging from Morocco to Vietnam and from Kazakhstan to South Africa. We are targeting Oman and India."

Bloom set to launch luxury project on Corniche Road in Abu Dhabi

on Friday, June 27, 2008

Bloom Properties, the joint real estate development arm of National Holding and Emirates International Investment Company, said it will launch Bloom Gardens, a luxury residential development, on Monday along the Eastern Mangrove Corniche Road.

The development features 640 luxury detached and semi-detached villas, townhouses and apartments, allowing investors one of the last opportunities to secure a foothold along this tract of sea frontage.

Construction will start in January 2009.

"We are looking forward to the fruition of Bloom Gardens in the first half of 2011, the first of several Bloom-branded, master planned communities in strategically selected locations," said Chief Executive Hani Shammah.

The Bloom brand takes a fresh approach to property and specifically community-orientated development – a new generation of property development – which sets it apart from other property developers in the capital.

In addition to Bloom Gardens, the company is currently developing a multi-billion dollar portfolio of large-scale, mixed-use, master planned communities across the Middle East, North Africa and other regions.

The communities will incorporate special assets with strong operators in the educational, healthcare and leisure fields, depending on the location.

Shammah said: "This development reflects our aspirations to become a leading developer in fast-growing markets, starting with Abu Dhabi and soon stretching from Morocco to Vietnam and from to Kazakhstan to South Africa."

The property company is developing mixed-used projects in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Algeria, and Romania.

UAE developer eyes global plan for top UK school



on Thursday, 19 March 2009


A UAE property developer has chosen leading UK private school Brighton College as its educational partner to establish a dozen schools across the world.

Abu Dhabi-based Bloom Properties will link up with the top school to establish a series of Brighton Colleges across the globe, it has been announced.

The first two schools will be in Abu Dhabi with plans to also establish branches in Mauritius, Oman, Jordan, Romania, Vietnam and India.

It is the first multi-school deal of its kind anywhere involving a leading British private school.

Each of the schools will be part of a much larger mixed-use project, cumulatively costing £7 billion. The first school will be established in the new Bloom Gardens development in the heart of Abu Dhabi.

Richard Cairns, the headmaster of Brighton College, said on the school's website: "We were determined to get involved in a country with sound fundamentals, providing us with a strong platform for international expansion.

"We have never been interested in just one school because we felt that a single satellite school would generate insufficient income for Brighton College to justify the additional focus and time that such a venture requires.

"That is why I am so delighted with this multi-site, multi-national deal."

Hani Rayden, the head of Bloom education, the property company's new education arm, added: "We were looking for a school that was highly successful academically and with a genuine commitment to developing the whole child.

"We were also very impressed with the school's international outlook, exemplified by its decision in 2006 to make Mandarin Chinese a core part of the curriculum. We are linking up with one of the great secondary schools in the world and one that we feel shares our ambitions."

The exact terms of the financial deal are confidential but Cairns said: "Potentially, this is the most significant development at

Brighton College since our foundation in 1845. It will provide new funds for Brighton College UK for buildings, bursaries and endowments without us having to raise fees."

Brighton College will appoint the senior staff of the school and provide the blueprint for the academic and pastoral set-up.

Last year, A-level students at Brighton College achieved the best results of any co-educational school in the UK.
