RIYADH | Riyadh Tower | 389m | 1276ft | 97 fl | Pro

Riyadh Tower

Riyadh Tower project, prominently situated in the heart of the central business district of Al Wroud in Riyadh city, consists of a hotel and serviced apartments tower sitting atop an expansive retail podium, creating a unique and recognizable landmark. The site, located on a rectangular shaped plot with a total area of 37,800sqm along the commercial strip, enjoys great accessibility from all sides, including direct access via King Fahed Road in the west and Olaya Road in the east, and is also in close proximity to major commercial and office buildings such as Faisaliah and Kingdom Towers.

The podium, hosting a selection of retail shops, restaurants and cafés to cater for both casual and fine dining, offers potential for other commercial uses. It also includes a landscaped garden distinguished by elaborate water features including canals, waterfalls and fountains. The concept for this project begins with the shape of a diamond reflected in plan and also in the 3 perforations to the volume, achieving a strong high-tech image to the tower. The 3 perforations generating the ‘sky gardens’, creates an amazing dialog between green areas, views and the most privileged apartments. In terms of materials, the project is composed of different types of metal and glass, providing more emphasis to the high-tech image of the building.

Type: Hospitality
Location: Riyadh, KSA
Client: Al Sondos Real Estate
Built-Up Area: 223,420 sqm
Height: 389m, B2+G3+94F

This building is being demolished to prepare the site for construction.
