Dar Al Arkan Chairman Sheikh Yousef Al Shelash On Establishing The Real Estate Development Company As A Global Brand

Since it was founded 28 years ago, the real estate development company has evolved into one of the most prominent listed real estate businesses in Saudi Arabia. In order to show the world that Dar Al Arkan is a global brand, Sheik Yousef Al Shelash feels it’s imperative for the company to be successful not only in Saudi Arabia, but also in other locations, including the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Spain, and the United Kingdom. As a result, the company opened its first office in China in February 2022.

Al Shelash explained, “Dar Al Arkan is showing Saudi values in delivering on promises, on time, and on quality.” Those are many of the same characteristics that attracted the Trump Organization to Dar Al Arkan’s Aida project.

The first project outside of Saudi Arabia for the real estate development company chaired by Sheikh Yousef Al Shelash is the Urban Oasis with interiors by Missoni. The luxury waterfront apartment is being developed in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

According to the real estate development concern, the Urban Oasis represents “the best of Miami now in Dubai.” The company revealed that the tower is “where Miami’s mood, vibes, and lifestyle are expertly captured in every detail.

Enjoy exclusive waterfront living, with penthouses accessed by private elevators, luxury apartments, first-class amenities, and sweeping views of the city and the canal.”

Al Shelash is also the chairman of Bahrain’s Bank Alkhair and the chairman of the Saudi Home Loans company in Saudi Arabia. He considers himself a family man and has always been focused on building a better future for families, which includes helping them acquire comfortable living spaces.

While the business is focused on making money, the Dar Al Arkan chairman also ensures the company is building “houses and apartments in which families are growing. People are building families, and they live in a community.

So this noble target is bigger than just the commercial target of building houses and apartments and making money.”

Apartments are experiencing a first-time boom in popularity throughout Saudi Arabia. According to Yousef Al Shelash, this is a significant change from 15 years ago, when “you would not see any Saudi national living in an apartment.” However, now there is a big trend toward living in apartments. “That has become an acceptable way of living,” he explained.

The modernizing of the market is motivating the shift in living spaces. “The opening up of the markets in terms of becoming more open to the external world, and more open of mixing between men and women — and opening up of so many of the restrictions that were before — allowed more and more people to live in apartments and to reduce the number of fences around the houses, which is really adding a different flair to the city,” stated Al Shelash.

“Because now you see the city as more alive. It is like demolishing these walls, adding more landscape, and seeing more apartment blocks have made the main cities of Saudi Arabia look more alive.”
