According to Arabian Business, “Qatari Diar, the real estate arm of Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund, has joined the race to buy and manage half of the Olympic Village in London.

The state-owned firm plans to submit a joint bid with British property developer Delancey to buy up around half of the 2,800 homes at the village, together with an adjacent plot of land with the potential for further 2,000 – 2,500 new homes.  The pair will compete against eight other bid groups for the contract, overseen by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), which would require the firms to deliver 2,818 new homes for East London after the 2012 Games.

About 1,300 of the new homes have been bought by Triathlon Homes for £270m (about $419m) and are designated to become affordable housing.”
