Hydra is working on several projects in the capital including Marina City and Golf Walk in Abu Dhabi.

“It is quite a thrill to be here in Abu Dhabi and see all the developments in full swing,” says Ivanka Trump, vice-president for real estate development and acquisitions at Trump Organstion. “Entering the active real estate scenario in this emirate is definitely something that we are looking into.

“We recognise the efforts being undertaken by Hydra Properties in building unique and high-quality projects, and a partnership with an influential developer such as them is an attractive option for us.”

Trump is working in neighbouring Dubai with Nakheel on the Palm Jumeirah. The 48-storey Trump International hotel and tower will be one of the main landmarks on the reclaimed island and will have a 300-room hotel and 360 apartments (MEED 28:3:08).
