Rody69 hit the target with the statistics - - between the number of predicted new families in Jeddah, and the increasing number of visitors - And, the Jeddah Municipality has there space syntax land use and circulation plan in place - I can't speak to how good this plan actually is, but they are aware of the need to meet a high demand for development in the next several years and are planning for it - new projects are emerging every day - -

next big question will be about infrastructure - - water, sewer, power - big challenges remain - - saw on another thread, that new desal plant is underway for south Jeddah -

not only that guys, but in the first 2-4weeks since the tower first opened it was already 100% full, and alot of companies and business men started saving spots 4 them in the tower, plus the guys named shekh waled bin talal, doesn't spend his money on anything stupid or something that doesn't gain profit 4 him, he's smarter than that, and ur talking about one of the top 10 richest ppl in the world (mashalla)

أرض جدة
تقع أرض جده في الجزء الشمالي من المدينة على ساحل البحر الأحمر على الجانب الشمالي لشرم أبحر والبحر الأحمر، وهي منطقة معروفة بجمال طبيعيتها والمرافق الخاصة بالشواطئ. وتبلغ مساحة هذه الأرض أكثر من 2 مليون متر مربع وتبعد حوالي 20 دقيقة بالسيارة عن مركز مدينة جدة وخمس دقائق إلى الشمال الغربي من مطار الملك عبدالعزيز. ويتألف الموقع من أرض مفتوحة ومستوية نسبياً وغير مطورة في الوقت الحاضر. وقد تم البناء في المنطقة المحيطة بها مباشرة حيث توجد مساكن خاصة وناد على الواجهة المطلة على البحر والمحاذية للموقع من الناحيتين الغربية والجنوبية. وقد اشترت الشركة أراض مجاورة تصل الموقع بشرم أبحر والبحر الأحمر.

وتخطط المملكة القابضة لاستخدام أرض جده لأغراض متنوعة منها التجاري والسكني وبناء منتجع سياحي تتوسطه ناطحة سحاب تحيط بها مرافق مختلفة منها مساحات خاصة بالمكاتب ووحدات سكنية، ومدرسة وفنادق وسوق تجاري. وسيتضمن المشروع تنفيذ بنية تحتية كبيرة بما في ذلك جسر علوي عبر خليج أبحر يصل بين الموقع ومركز المدينة والمطار في الجنوب لتقليل المسافات التي تقطعها السيارات.

وتقدر الشركة القيمة الإجمالية المحتملة لهذا المشروع الاستثماري بأكثر من 55 مليار ريال، وقد تم تكليف بوز آلن هاميلتون ("بوز آلن")، وهي شركة عالمية رائدة في مجال التخطيط الاستراتيجي والاستشارات الإدارية، بإجراء تحليل للسوق بالنسبة لمختلف مكونات المشروع ودراسة التصميم العام للمشروع في ضوء هذا التحليل، وتقييم الأداء المالي المتوقع له مستقبلاً. كما كلفت الشركة كلاً من شركة العمرانية وشركة HOK بإعداد خطة أساسية للمشروع، وشركة بيكارد تشيلتون بتصميم ناطحة السحاب، إضافة إلى شركات هندسية متخصصة أخرى بالنسبة للتصميم المعماري والبنية الأساسية وتخطيط الشوارع وحركة السيارات والتكاليف والجدول الزمني للتنفيذ وغير ذلك.

سيضم المشروع برجاً شاهقاً، ووحدات سكنية ومحلات تجارية ومساحات مكتبية ومنتجعاً على الشاطئ وفندقين من فئة أربع نجوم ومدرسة.

Jeddah & Riyadh Land
KHC will seek to repeat the success of its Kingdom Center through new landmark development projects in Riyadh and Jeddah. As with the Kingdom Center, the KHC is planning to create important new residential and commercial districts within those cities.

Riyadh Land
The Riyadh land site is strategically located on the Riyadh-Dammam highway in the north eastern outskirts of the city, approximately 15 minutes driving distance from the city. It comprises approximately 16.8 million square metres of relatively flat land with an extensive frontage on the highway, and is currently undeveloped, with the exception of several petrol filling stations on the south side of the main highway and numerous small residential camps. Once developed, the Riyadh land will be a mixed use residential and commercial development, in addition to a private leisure and equestrian club, with serviced bungalows and sports and other leisure facilities which are expected to be managed by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts. Plans exist for the government to build a highway linking the south western end of this development to the nearby King Khalid International Airport.

KHC estimates that the total investment potential that will be generated by this project will be in excess of SR20 billion. KHC believes that this development could house up to 75,000 people. It has engaged Booz Allen Hamilton ("Booz Allen"), the global strategy and management consulting firm, to analyse the market for the various components of this project, review the project development concept in the light of this market analysis, and evaluate the project’s expected financial performance going forward. It has also retained Omrania & Associates (O&A) together with Barton Willmore to develop the final master plan for the project.

Jeddah Land
The Jeddah land site is located in the city's northern area, on northern side of the Obhur Creek and the Red Sea, an area known for its natural beauty and beach facilities. It comprises more than 2 million square metres. It is approximately 20 minutes driving distance from the city centre of Jeddah and 5 minutes north west of the King Abdul Aziz airport. The site consists of relatively level open land which is presently undeveloped. The immediately surrounding area is developed with private residences and club facilities on the waterfront which borders the site on the west and south. The project has acquired adjacent sites to provide access to Obhur creek and the Red Sea.

KHC plans to use the Jeddah land for a mixed-use commercial, residential and resort development, anchored by a large skyscraper surrounded by other facilities including office space, residential units, a school, hotels and retail facilities. Some infrastructure works will be constructed, including a bridge across Obhur Creek, linking the site to the city centre and airport to reduce driving distances.

KHC estimates that the total investment potential that will be generated by this project will be in excess of SR 55 billion. It has engaged Booz Allen Hamilton ("Booz Allen"), the global strategy and management consulting firm, to analyse the market for the various components of this project, review the project development concept in the light of this market analysis, and evaluate the project’s expected financial performance going forward. It has also retained Omrania & Associates (O&A) together with HOK to develop a master plan for the project, plus Pickard Chilton for the skyscraper design, plus other specialized engineering firms for structural, infrastructure and traffic design, cost and time planning, etc.

The proposed development consists of a landmark tower, residential units, retail space, office space, a beach resort, hotels and an education campus.
