Amer Group celebrates excellence at OPP Awards

18th October 2010 Print

The Amer Group is delighted to have won the Gold award in the Best Developer, Egypt category at the OPP Awards for Excellence 2010.

The award was presented to Mr Peter Riddoch, CEO of the Amer Group by Geoff Harwick, Editor, OPP Media at the OPP Live exhibition being held at ExCel, London.

The value for money of the Group’s Egyptian developments, financial packaging, marketing strategy sales partner support, environmental awareness and commitment to customer service were cited as key factors which led to the winning of the award.

Mr Omar Amer, Vice Chairman, the Amer Group comments: “As a Group, we are dedicated to providing the best range of residential developments in Egypt, at an affordable price and without compromising on service. We are therefore delighted to have been recognised by the judges at OPP as one of the leading developers of property in Egypt. Our family-orientated “Porto World” destination resorts have established Egypt as a tourist destination, attracting visitors from around the world and making a significant impact on the economy. With new developments planned, we aim to continue our success and introduce more people to the benefits of owning a property in Egypt.”

Established in 1985 as a real-estate developer, today the Amer Group is considered a leader in innovation with its introduction of the "Porto" concept - a tourism project that includes world-class hotels, restaurants, movie theatres, international marinas, malls, spas and healthclubs.

Amer Group began with the development of Porto Marina, the first project of its kind in the desert. Porto Marina is designed to compete with Puerto Banus in Spain or France's Saint Tropez, the renowned vacation destinations for the rich and famous. In line with the success of Porto Marina, the group's mega-project in Ain Sokhna, Porto Sokhna, is the first project of its kind on a mountain top in Egypt.

Another of Amer Group's projects is Porto Marina Golf, which is the first development project to take place on the other side of the desert from Porto Marina, on the North Coast. Porto South Beach, the latest development, will be completed in 2012

The Group currently offers a total of 40,000 residential properties across Egypt, we plans for further developments over the next five years.

There are currently a wide range of studio, one, two, three bedroom apartments and four bedroom villas available at the ‘Porto World’ developments, with prices starting from £44,000.

In addition to offering residential properties for purchase, the Group has recently launched the Porto Vacation Club. The scheme allows investors to have a right of use for 50 years of a two-bedroom property at one of the included resorts permitting them exclusive access to their shared home for one or two weeks (or multiples) per year.

Prices start at £12,222 (two week package), £5,333 (two week package) and £2,770 (two week package) at Porto Marina, Porto Marina Golf and Porto Sokna respectively.
