OUR COMPANIES

PHARM AID LIMITED

RUSSIA

This modern, full-cycle vaccine manufacturing facility, with its world-class R&D centre, was established in Russia in 2017 as a joint venture between Rostec State Corporation and Ishvan Pharmaceuticals Ltd.

Pharm Aid’s vaccine production offers proven powerful tools against infectious disease, such as cutting-edge Messenger RNA (mRNA) technologies, together with other highly effective immunobiological agents. The goal is to develop the Russian Federation’s domestic manufacturing capability, thereby reducing its dependence on imports so that it can provide top-quality, affordable healthcare to all who need it.

TAJ HOTEL

DUBAI, UAE

Launched in 2015, the Taj Dubai is a flagship hotel in the Verne Hotels chain, operated by our appointee, the Taj Group. After acquiring a freehold interest in the hotel previously on this highly desirable site, the company spotted an opportunity to create something sensational amid the stunning architecture of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa area.

The result was the superb 296-room Taj Dubai, its conceptualisation and construction managed by Downtown Ventures. Contemporary chic infused with Indian artistry and warm, meticulous hospitality, the hotel offers stunning views of the world-famous, 160-storey Burj Khalifa and the breath-taking Dubai Fountain.

NEAT FOODS HOLDING LTD

DUBAI, UAE

Part of Downtown Venture Investments Limited, Neat Foods Holding Limited was established to develop new food and hospitality concepts that seamlessly bring together fine dining, music and entertainment.

The company owns and manages restaurants and clubs, introducing internationally recognized brands to the United Arab Emirates, India and UK. Its aim is to take this formula to other global regions.

MISS TESS

DUBAI, UAE

This exciting, unconventional restaurant was developed in 2016 by Downtown Investment Management LLC (DIML) and Infini Concept, who own and manage it, respectively. Together, they came up with the concept, brand identity and its cuisine.

Its eclectic decor is inspired by the vibrant artwork, paper lanterns, graffiti and neon signs of an Asian night market, while its extraordinary entertainment is pure dinner theater. Refined Asian street food provides a distinctive point of difference from the menus at the other restaurants within the Taj Dubai.
