The delegation comprised Mr Hejres and several members, including owners of real estate companies, real estate developers or their representatives. They were welcomed by Riffa Views managing director Yasser Alraee, Riffa Views Owners’ Association general manager Ali Zubari and other officials.
Mr Alraee briefed the delegation on the Riffa Views’ three estates – the Oasis, the Lagoons and the Parks – and highlighted the implementation stages of the project, including the final phase in which the remaining villas of the Parks Estate are being completed.
The Riffa Views’ experience in establishing the owners’ association and the members’ participation in the management of their community since 2012 through an elected board of directors was also reviewed.
The delegation toured the Riffa Views development which included a visit to a recently completed villa and were given details of the project’s facilities, design and construction.
Mr Hejres said that “Riffa Views is among the most distinguished real estate projects in the kingdom,” lauding the design and the implementation of previous phases of the project.
