KHOBAR l COMPLETED l Al Turki Business Park l 14F.

Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia, February 2005 – The Al-Khobar based Khalid Ali Alturki & Sons group of companies (Alturki Group) has just signed an agreement with Pei Partnership Architects Association based in New York City, USA for the construction of its new Headquarters in Al-Khobar. The agreement came following the Group’s decision of relocating its corporate headquarters to a brand new, purpose built office building reinforcing its image as one of the most successful business groups in Saudi Arabia. The building will accommodate the Group’s various companies in a central location, thereby improving communication and increasing efficiency. To this end, the Group has acquired a strategically located plot of land in Al-Khobar, Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. The site is approximately 5000sq. m. in area and is easily accessible by major highways.

The Group’s corporate headquarters is envisioned to be an architectural landmark in its own right, projecting the organization’s core values and competitive position as a leading Saudi enterprise. The project will consist of 6 floors with an approximate floor plate area of 800 – 1000 sq.m. The design will be contemporary in both appearance and function. A joint design team of the local Tariq Hajj Architects along with Pei Partnership Architects Association will handle the various stages of the project and commencement of construction is planned for fourth quarter of this year.

The Alturki Group is a leading industrial conglomerate operating in Saudi Arabia for over 30 years. The Group’s subsidiaries and joint venture companies provide specialized products and services for major industrial sectors such as oil, gas, petrochemicals, construction, utilities, power and telecommunications

Dhahran has several cool low rise buildings like this one... well, i'm still not sure where does Dhahran end and Khobar starts. Some only Consider Aramco, KFUPM, Airbase, Doha and Dannah as Dhahran and the rest is just part of Khobar.

Most neighborhoods in Dhahran are residential areas except Aramco,,,

But I'm wondering where are they going to build this building?!

I can't believe it took them three years and they haven't finished yet. And why does the thread title say "Completed"? It's topped out but clearly not completed.

Anyways, Thanks EMG76 for the updates!
