on Tuesday, March 03, 2009

Emaar, The Economic City (Emaar EC), the Tadawul-listed company developing King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), yesterday said it will commence sales of plots in Bay La Sun Village.

Third-party developers can enjoy full ownership of land for undertaking residential, commercial and multi-purpose buildings, and also benefit from KAEC's advanced infrastructure including smart city capabilities and district cooling.

The plots are located in the 250,000 square metre Bay La Sun Village, which is the first fully-integrated residential community in KAEC. They are also in close proximity to the business park and other amenities including a world-class hotel, shopping mall and restaurants. Work on the business park is nearing completion, and work on other amenities is progressing as per schedule.

Fahd Abdul Mohsen Al Rasheed, Board Member and Chief Executive Officer, Emaar EC, said: "KAEC has established itself as a premier development in the region offering high-growth opportunities in several key economic sectors. By offering plots for sale to third-party developers, we are extending the opportunity for investors to become an integral part of this project, which is envisaged to usher in a new era of socio-economic prosperity for the kingdom."

Sami Al Halabi, Acting Executive Director-Commercial, Emaar EC, said: "Demand for strategic plots for development is strong in Saudi Arabia, and several regional developers are looking at opportunities in the kingdom. The premium location of the plots within Bay La Sun Village ensures that investors are part of a vibrant community, with the first homes and offices to be delivered later this year."

The infrastructure support offered to buyers of the plots include ready water, power and sewage networks, roads and navigable canals, and information and communication technology.

WOW!! Excellent job Rody! Looks like they are making pretty rapid progress and it doesn't look like the slowdown in the economy has slowed down their construction..

It will be interesting in the days to come as we see more and more completed areas

Pretty impresive.

Where exactly is it from Jeddah? Is it close to Durrat-al-Arrus or even Northern?

And which is going to be the final name? KAEC seems pretty artificial!

If it was just "Abdullah City" that'll be fine .... but it's too long, King Abdullah Economic City ! KAEC is cool , but it wont be cool in arabic كيك !
تخيل معي ... هـ المدينة بتكون جزء من حياة أكثر من مليونين نسمة ... فتخيل تسأل واحد عايش هناك وين عايش؟
بيقولك أنا ساكن في مدينة الملك عبد الله الإقتصادية ؟ وإلا أنا ساكن في عبد الله ؟ و إلا أنا ساكن في كيك ؟
كلها ما خشت مزاجي ... بس ممكن نتعود على الوضع بعدين

@Rody: I know it gets irritating when we argue about project names, but in all honesty, KAEC is a really bad name for some pretty obvious reasons.

Why couldn't they have named it something shorter, or something a bit more creative? If they just named it Rabigh, it would have been a lot better.

King Abdullah is an awesome guy, but the name just won't stick.

yeah I know what you mean
but,everyone in Jeddah and Rabigh calls either (The King's city) or (King Abdullah city)
I think they added the word (Economic) to all the new cities just to mark this generation of cities,but it's not going to be the "street" names for it.

Overview
With a total development area of 173 km² (66.8 sq mi), the city is located along the coast of the Red Sea, around 100 km north of Jeddah, the commercial hub of the kingdom, the city is also going to be approximately an hour away from the holy Islamic cities of Mecca and Medina by car. And as reportedly an hour away of all Middle Eastern capital cities by plane. The total cost of the city is $80 billion (around SR 300 billion), with the project being built by Emaar, The Economic City. A Tadawul-listed company created from Emaar Properties, a Dubai-based Public Joint Stock Company and one of the world’s largest real estate companies, and SAGIA (Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority) which is the main facilitator of the project.
The city, along with other five economic cities, is a part of an ambitious "10×10" program to place Saudi Arabia among the world’s top ten competitive investment destinations by the year 2010, planned by SAGIA. The first stage of the city is planned to be completed in 2010, while the whole city is going to be fully completed by 2020. The city will help diversify the oil-based economy of the kingdom by bringing direct foreign and domestic investments. The city also will help create up to one million jobs for the youthful population of the country, where 40% of the population are under 15.


City Components
Industrial Zone
The Industrial Zone is estimated to cover 63 million m². The 4,400 hectares of land will be dedicated to industrial and light manufacturing facilities - identified as key growth drivers for the Saudi economy - and can now host 2,700 industrial tenants. The jobs created estimated to be in industrial and light industries (330,000); research and development (150,000); business and office (200,000); services (115,000); hospitality (60,000) and education and community services (145,000). The "Plastics Valley" planned within the zone will use raw materials readily available in Saudi Arabia to produce high-end plastics used in automotive, biomedical, construction and food packaging industries.


Sea Port
The Sea Port is estimated to cover 13.8 million sq meters, it will be the largest in the region with a capacity of over 10 million*twenty-foot equivalent units*(TEU) of containers per year. The port will have facilities to handle cargo and dry bulk, and will be equipped to receive the world’s largest vessels. Another key component of the Port will be a custom-built Hajj Terminal with a capacity to handle up to 300,000 pilgrims on their way to Mecca and Medina, the holy Muslim cities.


Residential Areas
The residential area is planned to include 260,000 apartments and 56,000 villas. It will be divided into smaller residential, commercial, and recreational areas. Parks and green spaces will be used extensively throughout the residential area. The area is estimated to be home for around half a million residents, and another ten thousand tourists. Each district would feature its own public amenities, such as mosques, shops and recreational venues.


Sea Resort
The Resorts Area will be designed to feature services and amenities, hoping to draw both local and international tourists. Set to become a major destination on the map of Saudi Arabia and the map of the Middle East as a whole. It will include hotels, shopping centers and other recreational facilities. The number of hotel rooms and suites are proposed to be 25,000 hotel rooms in more than 120 hotels. Among the tourist draws at the resort is an 18-hole golf course, with training facilities and driving range. An equestrian club, yacht club and a range of water sports will also be constructed.


Educational Zone
The Educational Zone is a part of plan to bring the Saudis capabilities and aspirations in technology to globally competitive levels. The Educational Zone is planned to consist of multi-university campus flanked by two Research & Development parks. The multi-university campus is designed to accommodate 18,000 students, and a 7,500 faculty and staff members.


Central Business District
The Central Business District (CBD) is planned to offer 3.8 million m² of office space, hotels and mixed-use commercial space. The Financial Island, within the CBD, has now been doubled in area to cover 14 hectares of land, which will be the largest regional financial nerve center for the world’s leading banks, investment houses and insurance groups.
