Trump recently announced that his real estate company will move into
South Africa in a joint venture with local businessman Neill Bernstein.
The two real estate moguls will work on a variety of properties, including
golfing, hotel and residential developments. They have signed a 10 year
agreement, and the next few years are expected to produce a myriad of
new properties for sale.
Bernstein, who is one of the largest real estate developers in the country
and owns Devland Holdings, has indicated that there are several projects
already in the works. He recently took Donald Trump Jr., the eldest
son of Trump, on a tour of potential projects and sites in South Africa.
Trump Jr. is expected to lead the companys venture in South Africa.
The Trump Organization, once a mostly US oriented company, has expanded
overseas in recent years with new developments in Dubai, Panama, and
It makes sense for them to look at projects in Africa too,
said Bernstein. The organization has a great formula for success,
enormous experience and an appetite for quality developments across
the leisure, golf and residential spread. There is an opportunity for
all these in our market.
