The project will be financed based on off-plan sales and partially on equity, it stated.

The Saudi group said the project is expected to have a positive impact on the company’s results at the start of sale and implementation.

As per the deal, Adeer Real Estate will be receiving 2.5% from the value of sold units for marketing and selling sold units, it added.
