Diamond Developers

Inspiring a Better Tomorrow



To build a future-proof, smart and sustainable, knowledge-powered economy – for the greater good of our people and the preservation of the planet. Shaping a better tomorrow for generations to come.



To accelerate the global movement towards sustainable development through our communities and knowledge initiatives which inspire, enable and empower the world to adopt sustainable and healthy lifestyles.



To become the world’s reference for successful sustainable communities and knowledge advancement.


The situation is critical…

Demand for food, water and natural resources has doubled in just 50 years – and it’s growing every day. We are using more than the Earth can provide.

However there is still hope. A global movement is beginning. People across the world are facing up to these challenges and creating practical solutions.

More and more of us are taking action to preserve what matters. Businesses are beginning to understand and value sustainability. Governments are reassessing how we use the world’s resources, with the preservation of our planet and future in mind.
It is our goal to spearhead this movement.

Our business model is carbon-friendly and aligns with the Paris Agreement (COP21); not by choice but by necessity. It is our collective responsibility to reverse climate change so that future generations can inherit a cleaner and healthier environment.

Diamond Developers was founded by an extraordinary team of visionary entrepreneurs, architects and civil engineers.

We were one of the first companies in Dubai to enter the freehold property and real estate development industry since the introduction of freehold property ownership in 2002 and we are the proud pioneer of the world’s first fully sustainable community.

Begins as one of Dubai’s first companies to enter the real estate market with an ambitious vision of how the future should look.

After completing several towers and developments across Dubai, the financial crisis hit. This opened up a unique opportunity for Diamond Developers to create ‘a new era in real estate.’

Driven by our mission, it was here that a new, commercially viable, future ready concept which values the environment was born. This led us to design The Sustainable City in 2012 and four years later proudly launched the region’s first fully sustainable community development.. This development is living proof of our mission – offering sustainable, low-carbon living within the natural environment without compromising the needs of our planet, people or future generations.

It was our mission to create healthy, happy, and harmonious communities that inspired us at this point to challenge convention. At a time where customers were more price conscious than ever, we brought the first zero service charge and maintenance fees offering to the market which provided customers greater value than they’d ever seen in the market before at a time they least expected it.

It is this ethos which shapes our work both here and internationally. Our three Social, Environmental and Economic (SEE) pillars are central in our vision towards becoming a global benchmark for sustainable living and knowledge advancement.


Our brand values communicate what we believe as a company and how we’re working together toward a shared vision. By articulating what we stand for, we can attract better employees and customers who share our beliefs.



Creating a sustainable future is our philosophy. It is this and the betterment it brings about which drives everything we do. Our bespoke communities and solutions strive to promote the greatest ecological balance whilst upholding the highest quality standards.
