Real Estate Development

Al Gaz divested from the majority of his franchise holdings (e.g. selling franchise rights to Nissan in the 1980s) to concentrate on real estate development. Having already distinguished himself in building the first three-story building in Dubai’s history, Al Gaz went on to develop much of the properly around Port Said, the clock-tower plaza, and Hamriya in Bur Deira, helping to create the infrastructure for what has become the vibrant Deira market place.
