أعلنت شركة كنان الدولية للتطوير العقاري عن إطلاق مشروع تجاري وسكني في جدة بتكلفة ملياري ريال (الدولار = 3.75 ريالا) على مساحة تتجاوز 40 ألف متر مربع في المنطقة الواقعة بتقاطع شارع الأندلس مع طريق الملك عبدالله، حيث سيزال مركز "بنده" التجاري الحالي في تلك المنطقة ليقام مكانه المشروع والذي يتكون من برجين عملاقين أحدهم تجاري يحتوي على مكاتب للشركات ولرجال الأعمال بمساحة بناء تبلغ 124 ألف متر مربع، ويضم فندقاً فئة 5 نجوم بمساحة بناء 35 ألف متر مربع، والبرج الثاني سكني ويحتوي على شقق سكنية فاخرة صممت على أحدث الطرز العالمية وروعي فيها الاستفادة من ضوء الشمس وتيارات الهواء لتحقق الجانب الصحي والتهوية السليمة وذلك بمساحة بناء إجمالية 74 ألف متر مربع، إلى جانب مركز تجاري بمساحة 34 ألف متر مربع يضم أفخم الماركات العالمية ومن المقرر أن يتم افتتاح البرجين وملحقاتهما مع بداية عام 2011م.




وبين الرئيس التنفيذي لقطاع العقار والتجزئة بمجموعة صافولا الدكتور محمد أمين قشقري في بيان تلقى "الأسواق.نت" نسخة منه اليوم الخميس 27-12-2007 أن الشركة تعاقدت مع شركة نكن سيكي المحدودة (Nikken Sekkei Ltd) لتصميم المشروع باعتبارها واحدة من أكبر شركات التصميم والاستشارات الإدارية والهندسية في العالم، حيث صممت مبنى البنك الإسلامي بجدة و20 ألف مشروع في أربعين دولة حول العالم.

كما تعاقدت "كنان" مع شركة مدرار للتطوير العقاري -شركة سعودية- لتقديم خدمات الإداري المطور لهذا المشروع لتميزها بكوادر من ذوي الخبرات المحلية والعالمية في مجال الدراسات والاستشارات لمختلف مراحل المشروع.

وأوضح الدكتور قشقري أن شركة كنان كانت قد أوكلت دراسة الجدوى وتقييم احتياجات السوق في المستقبل لشركة جونز لانج لاسال (Jones Lang LaSalle) التي قامت بتنفيذ الدراسة وفق حرفية عالية. وأشار إلى أن شركة "كنان" قامت بتعيين شركة هيل إنترناشيونال (Hill International) كمدير للمشروع، وذلك نظرا لكونها من ضمن أكبر 100 شركة أمريكية في مجال التشييد والإستشارات الهندسية وتمتلك الخبرة الكبيرة في هذا المجال لاسيما وهي متواجدة في 70 دولة حول العالم.

وأوضح قشقري أن قرب المشروع من المنطقة المركزية والتجارية والتاريخية في جدة وخصوصا الغرفة التجارية وبعض الوزارات على طريق الملك عبدالله يعطي المشروع بعدا استراتيجيا مهما لا سيما وتصميمه المتفرد الذي جاء متناسقا مع المنطقة المتميزة باتساع مساحاتها وتحقيقها للناحية الجمالية، وقال "إن المشروع يحتوي على منتزهات ومسطحات خضراء على أسطح المباني بمساحة 16 ألف متر مربع، وأيضا مواقف للسيارات تتسع لحوالي 4 الآف سيارة.

يذكر أن شركة كنان تأسست في عام 2004 بواسطة شركة صافولا تحت مسمى (شركة المرافق الحديثة) وفي عام 2006 تم زيادة رأس مالها إلى مليار و 700 مليون ريال بعد دخول شركاء جدد قاموا بشراء 70% من أسهمها واستقر أسمها على مسمى شركة كنان الدولية للتطوير العقاري وذلك بعد موافقة الشركاء في عام 2007.

وتعمل شركة كنان حاليا بكل جهد لتشارك في التطوير العقاري للمشروعات التجارية والسكنية والسياحية والترفيهية في كافة أنحاء المملكة العربية السعودية. وكانت الشركة قد حصلت على جائزة أفضل مطور عقاري لمشاريع المراكز التجارية في المملكة خلال عامي 2005 و 2006 حيث قامت ببناء وتشغيل العديد من المراكز التجارية الضخمة في مختلف أنحاء المملكة، وتضم أصول الشركة حاليا 6 مراكز تجارية لهايبر بنده بالإضافة إلى 8 مراكز أخرى تضم أسواق سوبر ماركت بنده، كما قامت الشركة خلال عام 2007 بإفتتاح أكبر مركز تجاري في المدينة المنورة ويحمل إسم (عالية المدينة) ومركز آخر في ينبع يحمل اسم (دانة مول) ويجري إنشاء مشرع سكني (حي كنان-1 ) في ينبع يضم 240 فيلا سكنية فاخرة، ويأتي كل ذلك لتحقيق هدف الشركة بأن تكون الرائدة في التطوير العقاري في منطقة الشرق الأوسط

The project is located close to Jeddah's Central Business District and strategically situated at the intersection of King Abdullah Road and Al Andalus Street. The project is designed by Nikken Sekkei Ltd., a world-renowned architectural firm, and is planned to be completed in early 2011.

Two renders I found recently







This mixed use urban development, conceived to revitalise the centre of Jeddah is an extremely forward thinking endeavor. The clients brief was to capitalise on the new unlimited height, special project status given to various parts of the city by the Municipal planning authorities. Rather than simply provide another iconic Middle East tower, the development of the design philosophy was to fulfil the need for an urban complex of local and unique character, that could become synonymous with the Jeddah skyline. In other words, a tower that belonged only to Jeddah. The futuristic tower has a "fulcrum" role, addressing the Andalusia Circle, CBD and Jeddah harbour, in front of the property; and the residential, new city areas "behind" it, fusing together its prominent cusp location in the city. The side views of the tower provide a profile to the larger city and the corniche beach esplanade area. The tower is ultra modern, adopting a minimalist approach, while utilising local idioms of "mushrabiya" screens and air capturing terraces as "elements in the sky".

Traditional timber screens and old decorative components are reworked in glass and stainless steel finishes. Maximum use of photovoltaic cells is made to form the "crown" of the building, emphasising the importance of the sun in this ancient desert city. The commercial tower sits proudly above the circle and provides drama at the front of the site, above a two level retail podium. This podium also supports a boutique hotel and residential tower with terraces interacting with the mall below. The linearity of the site is used to maximum effect to distribute activity along its length and to the extremes of the site. Pedestrians are able to access the circulation spine off four street entrances, while parking is neatly arranged below the full length of the circulation spine and adjacent to the commercial tower. The complex becomes a 24/7 environment and a true internalised urban space, opening up to the sky with roof terraces and a retractable skylight to enjoy alfresco shopping and dining in good weather. The modern environment will house specialised and boutique retail and become a series of "urban rooms" where residents, workers and shoppers interact in an open, lively atmosphere.
