Dubai: Emirate Stallions Group, based in Abu Dhabi, is building a 300-room hotel in a joint venture with DAL Group, the largest private-sector conglomerate in Sudan. A 16-storey, Dh240 million project, set in central Khartoum, will be constructed within the wider Al Mogran development.
With a site area of 7 million square meters and a cost of more than $4 billion, Al Mogran Development is the “most ambitious real-estate scheme” in the country. This will include 44 commercial towers, 18 hotels, and 700 residences. In phase 2, there will be more than 6 million square meters of residential space, including 650 villas, more than 7,000 apartments, an 18-hole golf course, and over 70,000 square meters of retail space.
It is part of the International Holding company’s portfolio and is listed on ADX. “We have excellent credentials and experience in developing hotels, and while this is our first hospitality development in Sudan, we have completed similar projects in Africa and Europe over the years,” said Matar Suhail Al Yabhouni Al Dhaheri, Chairman of ESG. “We are pleased to have DAL Group as a partner in this project which will help and support the creation of hundreds of hospitality-related jobs for the local market.”
