D&B Real Estate Company

was established in 2014 in Riyadh KSA as a devision of Design and Build Construction Company  who pooled their skills, resources and experience to develop and operate residential, commercial and mixed use projects in KSA and beyond.

The Company spun off of D&B Construction Company (Owned by Arch Abdulelah Al Mohanna as Chairman and Tarek Buhamdan as MD) whose founders made the shift from building properties for clients to developing properties of their own.

In the course of going through the process to do everything from concept to Asset Management in house. The company was formed and a team was built to fulfill the property management function. The success of that project led to the incorporation of D&B Real Estate which has since grown to several ongoing and complete projects.

D&B Real Estate Co. is capable, internally and through our affiliates , of providing end to end real estate development solutions.


The purpose of establishing Design and Build Real Estate Company is to acquire land through lease, purchase or in partnership with land owners to develop commercially viable real estate projects. Our approach in this endeavor is to appeal and/or cater to four key audiences.

In the case of land lease or partnership with land owners, the company plans and present projects that will attract land owners to either lease their assets for a fair term and rate or participate in the proposed projects by putting up the value of their land in the fund raising effort as partners in the development project.

Design and Build Real Estate also engages in planning projects that investors (firms, institutions or individuals) will find to be attractive investments when presented with the plans, due diligence and feasibility studies of planned developments.

Design and Build real estate also studies market trends, identifying high value trade zones in which efforts are made to find land for development with the consideration of retail tenant’s commercial and functional needs, desires and objectives. The developments made in such locations may be mixed use or pure retail but will always be high end, iconic, niche and well planned regarding design,  size (of units and overall), function and facilities. As the company grows it is building relationships with its retail partners to understand their needs and desires in order to better serve them with each new project.

The residential and hospitality projects of Design and Build Real Estate are built to serve specific market segments in terms of income bracket, catering to their tastes, preferred locations, facilities and sense of community in a bid to be an industry leader in creating niche small and mid size premium residential complexes and buildings.

Finally to develop niche projects that yield an above average return for the type of real estate that they are, and promote those projects to investors who wish to acquire income generating real estate that provides a steady return to themselves or their clients.


To develop high end real estate projects that have a commendable visual, social and commercial impact in the locations they are built and the communities they host and serve.
