Al-Qudra Real Estate, part of the local Al-Qudra Holding, has launched its first major project. Known as Danet Abu Dhabi (Pearl of Abu Dhabi), the mixed-use complex will be built on Airport road and will comprise 34 towers ranging in height from 15-23 storeys and a shopping mall.

The remaining towers will be developed by private investors. The project covers an area of 210,000 square metres and will be split into five districts: Jumana, Doora, LouLou, Giwan and Gemash.
