Founded in 1961 by Anthony V. Zehenni after his tenure at Litton Industries directing their Real Estate division, Aladdin Developers, Inc. focused initially on high-end custom homes and large scale above-market quality housing tract development. Several successful projects later in 1966, Aladdin Developers forayed into industrial and commercial development. Successes quickly expanded operations into civil engineering and retail markets, with the achievement of just over $400 million in development by early 1975. As Aladdin’s reputation for quality and timely project success grew, so did the need for a properly managed investment arm.
After several notable hotel and high-rise projects, 1977 saw the key advancement of various subsidiary corporations into oil, gas, geo-thermal, automotive, and aerospace. Concurrently, global development initiatives & investments provided myriad opportunities for growth and portfolio expansion, adding to the overall progress of Aladdin Developers.
1982 proved a crucial year in numerous ways, ultimately leading to the consolidation of existing investments, development projects, and assets into a marquee portfolio. Late 1989, continued the trend with expanded investments in new markets and more interesting one’s in existing markets.
By the mid 1990’s, Aladdin Developers had achieved a landmark portfolio, solid global expertise, and gross development revenues of note. This foundation provides the fulcrum that today’s investments and projects stem from.

Our Chief Executive Officer best conveys the focus, “Everything we’ve built is quality. Aladdin doesn’t put its name on anything else.”
Since its inception in 1961, Aladdin Developers has thrived by anticipating trends and by creating markets where none existed. Sensing the emerging land rush to Southern California, Aladdin started building apartments and low income housing, then moved on to upscale communities such as Westlake Village where it created 300 exclusive single family homes.
In the late 60s, Aladdin Developers was building luxury hotels in Hawaii, nearly a decade before the boom in island real estate. From its headquarters on the fabled Sunset Strip, Aladdin Developers manages the properties in creates; it’s the best way to ensure that quality construction endures and investments are maximized.
The 70s, recognized opportunity in an isolated mountain town which often served as a hideout for celebrities and executives. The company transformed Lake Arrowhead, California into the largest private lake in the West and into one of the most popular resorts during both Summer and Winter. In traditional visionary-fashion Aladdin Developers oversaw everything from the laying out of streets to light fixtures to the renowned Point Hamiltair Estates collection of mansions & extraordinary residences. However, the most notable success is what Aladdin Developers didn’t do: “We didn’t tear down a single tree. All the development was subordinated to Lake Arrowhead’s natural beauty, for future generation’s sake.”
Simultaneously, Aladdin Developers was opening Nigeria to American investment by delivering infrastructure to the Nigerian government in the forms of roads, bridges and homes for civil servants. In turn, careful planning, engineering and development created a solid foundation for the limitless growth that ensued in this emerging African nation.
Domestically, infrastructure projects and investments included freeways in Southern California and the ports of San Pedro, one of America’s busiest seaports. These, and other, projects have continued to set the standards of excellence above industry norms with lifespans that have withstood tremendous use, all earthquakes to date, and done so with virtually no retrofitting.
Hospitals, homes, resorts, infrastructure, technology, oil and gas: Whatever can be dreamed, Aladdin Developers will create from it’s its twin building blocks: Quality + Service.
