Roberto Santiago: Creating an Atmosphere in the Heart of Joao Pessoa

When entrepreneur Roberto Santiago stepped into the business world, it is unclear whether he anticipated the enormous amount of success he would enjoy. He showed a propensity towards business even at a young age. He received his education from Pio X Marist College and obtained a degree in Business Administration from the University Center in Joao Pessoa. He was very committed to a career in the business field. One of the first businesses that he started as an up and comer, was a cartonnage company. This company would design and manufacture cardboard cartons for a myriad of businesses. It was through this business that Santiago made lasting business contacts and cultivated a reputation for quality products.

 

After dominating the cartonnage market, Santiago was looking for another challenge. Real estate was something that he had developed a passion for. Santiago saw potential in Joao Pessoa for something new and amazing. He bought a very large plot of land and started to develop an innovative shopping center he would dub Manaira. Manaira was not going to be any typical shopping center however, it was going to be the biggest shopping center in the Brazilian state of Paraiba. In 1987, construction began on the massive building and Santiago’s dreams started to come to fruition. There was nothing stopping him now from colliding the worlds of shopping and luxury together within the walls of Manaira.

 

Today, Manaira is one of the biggest shopping malls in Brazil and has become a staple in the community of Joao Pessoa. The mall enjoys an overall very positive reputation with residents and travelers alike. In fact, there are some residents who visit the mall daily for their shopping needs. Throughout Manaira the shopping options feel endless and are specifically tailored to cater to individuals of all social classes. From fine dining to fast food, there is also a wide array of eating options that shoppers will find quite interesting and affordable to their own specific budgets.

 

The crown jewel of Manaira is Domus Hall. Domus Hall is the epitome of all that Manaira stands for and it helps complete the overall atmosphere that CEO Santiago was going for with his grand building. This entertainment space is located on the roof of Manaira and can safely house up to 10,000 individuals. Santiago designed to comfortably host concerts, conferences, weddings, ceremonies, fairs, and exhibits. This massive facility is spread over two-stories with private rooms available on the second floor. This concert hall has attracted quite a bit of attention, not only from Brazilian artists but from international ones as well. Through all his hard work, it is clear that Roberto Santiago was able to create an atmosphere with Manaira that is one of a kind.

 

Hussain Sajwani Develops A Luxury Real Estate Brand Across The UAE

The DAMAC Properties founder, Hussain Sajwani has always been impressive in the way business is conducted and for the fact, he is always willing to provide assistance to others in a range of different ways. Among the aspects of his life Hussain Sajwani is willing to share are his journey to becoming a business success and how the luxury property leader has created a business model designed to keep his real estate industry protected from the “boom and bust” nature of the real estate industry.

 

Now a business partner and friend of President Donald Trump, the Hussain Sajwani family are now regular visitors to the resorts of Donald Trump and his family who are now interlinked with the Abu Dhabi born real estate developer. Hussain Sajwani and President Trump have joined together to construct a series of golf course-based real estate developments consisting of luxury homes and golf courses designed by world-renowned designer and Major-winner, Tiger Woods. This first partnership is one Hussain Sajwani has already stated he would wish to develop in the future with the construction of more Trump branded resorts across the Gulf region of the Middle East.

 

In bringing news of his own business successes and issues arising across the real estate empire built by Hussain Sajwani, the real estate developer has brought an impressive range of options to the fore in his bid to aid those who wish to follow in his footsteps. Lowering debt levels is a key part of the business model pursued and developed by Hussain Sajwani, particularly as he feels the majority of real estate developers hold too much debt when embarking on a new construction.

 

When embarking on a new development, Hussain Sajwani always pays for the land to be used outright leaving him with one debt on land to be paid during any period of prolonged construction. By ensuring escrow accounts are never linked the funding for any development is always in placed and never used to pay for other construction projects; finally, Hussain Sajwani does not use all his assets to pay for new projects as he feels the security of cash, bonds, and shares held in his company name are a major reason for his personal success.
