|Singapore-listed Pacific Star Development (PSD) and Dubai’s DAMAC International have become partners in jointly developing luxury properties across key cities in Southeast Asia over the next five years.
That paves the way for DAMAC International’s entry into Southeast Asia where both partners share a positive outlook on the increasing demand for high-end properties in this market.
The two developers are jointly targeting projects in Malaysia and Thailand as primary markets, followed by Vietnam, Indonesia and Singapore.
They will jointly develop residential, hospitality and retail projects in prime locations.
|We are looking at a broad spectrum of development opportunities that capitalize on Southeast Asia’s rising urbanisation, favourable demographics and increasing tourism. DAMAC's strengths are a clear advantage in these markets where it has demonstrated leadership in developing world-class projects, creating innovative sales and marketing strategies and optimizing cost effective delivery approaches.”
