Luxury development planned for Saudi city of Al Khobar

The Saudi Arabian city of Al Khobar is set to be transformed by a new development from architects Dewan which will see more than a thousand luxury apartments created.

The site chosen is along King Saud Road, close to the Corniche, which became a prominent local landmark following the expansion of what was once a small fishing village into a large port in the 1930s

Dewan say the plans will establish Al Khobar as a “prosperous global city”.

The design is based on a grid system which in turn takes its cue from the surrounding streets.

A large landscaped plaza sited between the residential towers is also a feature of the design

The project occupies a 40,000m2 site and includes integration of four towers acting as residential and offices blocks along with a 22,600m2 mall at the base of a four-star hotel.

The entire development is on top of a two storey podium and a basement.

The 22-storey residential block towers contain 1,400 apartments as well as 15 penthouses.

The 88m hotel is comprised of 252 rooms and 52 serviced apartment.

A 12-storey office tower and a retail podium complete the Al Khobar Mixed Use Development.
