DUBAI: Saudi property developer Alandalus said first quarter net profit rose 55 percent to about SR19 million ($5.1 million), driven by its office business.

Overall revenues gained by a fifth over the period, helped by the acquisition last June of QBIC Plaza in Riyadh.

The high-end office complex located close to the intersection of King Abdulaziz Road with Northern Ring Branch Road in the Al-Ghadeer district of the capital, is fully leased to the Ministry of Housing for a period of three years.

“Despite the continuation of the pandemic and its effects on society, the company’s malls reported healthy footfall rates, which contributed to achieving positive results in the first quarter of the year,” said Alandalus CEO Hathal bin Saad Al-Otaibi. “We also affirm the continuity of the company’s strategic approach to maintaining our tenant mix and progressing steadily toward achieving our future targets, God willing. “

The developer’s offices and malls business helped to compensate for the impact of the pandemic on its hospitality unit where occupancy levels fell.
