“A sharp developer who spends 3 years alleviating regulatory burden and preparing the location for new development is a role model for many of us. Defining the OPPORTUNITY of green might be more important than strict protection of green. It is all about understanding the ‘trade-offs’ and making the conscious decision that we can defend in front of the coming generations” Ruba Al Zu-bi’.
