Iran is a land of warm and friendly people
DIPLOMAT Group, based in Tehran, is Iran’s premier builder of luxury high rise residences and villas. DIPLOMAT Group's portfolio of projects shows the results of an unwavering commitment to quality in engineering, design and construction and has resulted in some of the most iconic commercial buildings, residential towers and villas in the country.
Iran, Open for Business
In July, 2015 the U.S., Iran, Russia, China, U.K., France and Germany gave word that they had reached an accord on the status of Iran’s nuclear program, lifting sanctions that had an adverse effect on trade. Inside Iran, the deal is seen as a huge business opportunity.
The economic sanctions imposed by the western nations have made it difficult for Iranian companies to attract foreign investment. With the lifting of the sanctions, new money is expected to flow into the country and stimulate growth. Just last month, as it seemed likely a deal would be struck, the Telecommunication Company of Iran was was put up for sale. It is being offered at auction and will provide the purchaser with a monopoly on telephone communications within the country. Minimum bid is $7.8 billion.
In fact, the Iranian government has been sending signals that foreign investors are welcome since 2002 when a law was passed liberalizing the rules for foreign ownership of assets, protecting them from nationalization, and adding tax incentives. This year Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh emphasized to western investors that most businesses in Iran were eligible for investment by westerners other than strategic petroleum resources.
Although western investment in Iran has been hard to come by in recent years, that doesn’t mean that domestic economic activity has come to a standstill. To the contrary, the Iranian economy is diverse and vibrant, and GDP growth has tracked more or less with the rest of the world, in spite of the sanctions imposed by the West.

DIPLOMAT Group Farmaniyeh Twin Towers
One of the most luxurious residential buildings in Tehran, the DIPLOMAT Group Farmaniyeh Twin Towers contains 40 residential units in 13 stories and over 15,000 square meters. Interior spaces with marble, steel and water give the building a sleek, modern look in the common areas and uncompromising luxury in the residences.
DIPLOMAT Group Zaferaniyeh has clean exterior lines which belie the opulence found inside, with such unexpected pleasures as a pool on the roof and a multilevel patio and garden within. There are 20 units distributed among nine stories over 10,000 square meters.
DIPLOMAT Group Elahiyeh is a special property, and sets the standard for modern luxury with only 10 units distributed through 16 stories and 7,267 square meters.
Talking about quality and creativity is easy, but delivering it is a challenge.
