Damac owner, Hussain Sajwani family and More
Damac Properties has completed countless award-winning residential, commercial and mixed projects throughout Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and even the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – with efforts in progress for regions like Jordan, Lebanon and the U.K. This Company has likewise released two of its master developments in Dubai with nearly 100 million square feet in between each. Damac Hills – formerly called Akoya by Damac – centers around Beverly Hills-style lifestyles on The Drive, and its championship-standard Trump International Golf Club in Dubai comes with a balanced mix of horizontal with vertical community living solutions. Trump International Golf Club Dubai opened in 2017 by guests of honor Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. The following development, Akoya Oxygen, boasts a second world-class course designed for Tiger Woods – the Trump World Golf Club in Dubai, home to The Dubai Rainforest with the Vista Lux – a retail, entertainment and dining destination.
Hussain Sajwani began Damac Properties in 2002, using Dubai’s government decrees that allowed foreigners to own properties in the Emirates. He viewed non-Emiratis as the top apartment buyers. After purchasing land in undeveloped parts of town, he then sold units within his first 38-story residential buildings in less than six months prior to beginning construction. Sajwani has helped burnish Dubai’s international image as a glittering destination, teaming with Donald Trump as of 2013 to develop two Trump-branded golf spots. The Trump International Golf Course in Dubai opened on February of 2017 at Damac’s own Akoya.
The Trump World Golf Course Opening
Designed by Tiger Woods, this property’s expected to open at an upcoming Damac event in 2018. In a press conference following his election as President of the U.S., Trump thanked Sajwani, calling him the amazing man who managed to offer him a $2-billion real estate deal within Dubai that he simply could not turn down. Sajwani originally began his career within food services, attracting clients like the U.S. military and even construction giant – Bechtel. He still owns food service firms in many places.
