In the last three years, Dar Al Arkan has delivered more than SAR 11 billion in revenues and raised 11 Sukuks in the past 13 years with a total value of SAR 20.3 billion.
“We’ve been able to reach and sustain our current position in the real estate sector through the various collaborations we’ve had with international experts,” says Anand Raheja, CEO of Dar Al Arkan. “This has allowed us to introduce new and unique standards for commercial and residential developments, helping us become the largest real estate developer in Saudi Arabia.”
Even though Dar Al Arkan delivers a diverse range of operations, real estate development remains the core focus of its business. Central to its success has been the continual production of innovative projects such as mixed-use developments to fit a modern lifestyle. The company plays a leading role as the Kingdom adapts to new opportunities. Maintaining standards of excellence is vital to Dar Al Arkan, which has attracted local recognition, particularly for completing projects on schedule, while applying best international standards in construction and maintenance.

“Dar Al Arkan is considered a pioneer in urban development in the Kingdom,” adds Raheja. “Over its 25-year history, the company has delivered a number of projects across the country including Al Qasr Mall in Riyadh, which is a 220,000 sqm shopping center and is home to the first 15 multiplex cinema theaters in Riyadh established in 2019.”
With a vision to increase lucrative investment opportunities and support Vision 2030, Dar Al Arkan is keen to develop more high quality locations through a growing portfolio of strategic land acquisitions. “We are well positioned to support and contribute to Vision 2030’s objectives of diversifying the economy and increasing the Saudi home ownership rate,” says Raheja. “The real estate sector is a key element in delivering on Saudi’s aspirations and Dar Al Arkan is determined to play a leading role in helping to achieve these goals.”
Furthermore, underpinning Dar Al Arkan’s growth is its active investment in developing human capital, with an emphasis on supporting the role of women in the workforce. More than 30 percent of its employees are women. This aligns with the company’s belief in not only maximizing shareholder returns, but also being a force for good in the development of the Kingdom. This is demonstrated by the company’s support of corporate social responsibility and its charity support program, as well its engagement with investors who value environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics in their investment strategies.
“Dar Al Arkan is a standard-bearer for the real estate sector, and with a history of achievements and success, we have an exciting future ahead of us,” Raheja concludes.
