Cairo-based real estate leader Palm Hills Developments, led by Egyptian billionaire Yasseen Mansour, has secured a new deal to develop a tourism project on Egypt’s Northern Coast, further solidifying its position within the regional industry.

Pickalbatros confirms hotel project, ownership talks ongoing

Pickalbatros Chairman Kamel Abou-Aly confirmed that project blueprints, which include hotels, are currently being implemented. The partnership’s ownership structure is still under negotiation.

Established more than 20 years ago, Pickalbatros Hotels & Resorts is a prominent hotel chain in both Egypt and the MENA region. The company boasts a diverse portfolio of 25 properties in attractive destinations like Hurghada, Marsa Alam, Sahl Hasheesh, and Morocco.

Palm Hills: Top developer in Egypt

Palm Hills, the second-largest listed real estate company on the Egyptian Exchange, is recognized for its expertise in integrated developments. The company constructs residential, commercial, and resort communities, solidifying its position as a premier developer with a diversified portfolio across Egypt.

Under Yasseen Mansour’s leadership, Palm Hills reported a $51.1-million profit at the end of its 2023 fiscal year, reflecting a robust 25.9 percent year-over-year increase. This achievement is particularly impressive given the current global economic headwinds.

The profit surge stems from a significant rise in the company’s revenues, which climbed from EGP13.6 billion ($440.15 million) in 2022 to EGP17.46 billion ($565.13 million) in 2023. Despite ongoing economic challenges, Palm Hills capitalized on rising demand for real estate assets, fueled by urbanization and a growing need for housing.
