Nakheel, one of the world’s largest and most innovative real estate developers, today announced it has increased its total economic interest to approximately 12.5 per cent of the issued securities of leading Australian integrated real estate group, Mirvac Group Limited.
The investment follows the announcement of Nakheel’s 6.51 per cent economic interest in Mirvac in December 2007 which marked the beginning of a strategic partnership between the two groups.
Mirvac is a leading integrated real estate group, listed on the ASX with more than $26.3 billion of activities under control across the real estate funds management and development spectrum. Established in 1972, Mirvac has more than 30 years of experience in the real estate industry and has an unmatched reputation for delivering quality products across all of its businesses
Chris O’Donnell, Nakheel CEO, said: “The Mirvac Group has an unmatched reputation in the development and ownership of residential and commercial real estate and is responsible for some of Australia’s best residential projects - there are exciting possibilities ahead for both groups.
“Nakheel’s increased economic investment represents a strategic holding and a long-term partnership with Mirvac. As Nakheel looks to broaden its international remit, it makes perfect sense to work alongside a like-mind company. We have identified many options in Australia and overseas to consider joint venturing with Mirvac, including its bid with Leighton Properties for Barangaroo in East Darling Harbour. Mirvac, like Nakheel, is committed to the provision of exceptional service, outstanding developments, and sound investment opportunities.”
