Al-Huda goes Andalusian

02 December 2005
Local property developer Al-Tajamua International for Real Estate Development & Engineering Company is due to issue by late January a tender for the main construction works for the Al-Huda plaza 2 project. The estimated SR 150 million ($40 million) scheme calls for the construction of a 14-storey, mixed-use building to be located on the Jeddah corniche. The total built-up area will be 64,000 square metres and will take 18 months to complete (MEED 3:6:05).

Al-Tajamua plans the construction of two more projects in the kingdom. To be called Al-Andalus, the mixed-use complex will be built in the Kuddai area of Mecca. Estimated to cost SR 550 million ($145 million), the development will involve the construction of 12 14-storey towers with a total built-up area of 240,000 square metres. MedDesign of Jordan is due to complete the design work by January.

Work is already under way for Al-Huda plaza 1, for which a SR 64 million ($17 million) main construction contract was awarded in May to the local Mubarak al-Qitmi Contracting. The facility will be built in Jeddah's Al-Hamra district and will entail the construction of an eight-storey residential building. The total built-up area will be 28,000 square metres. The consultant for the Al-Huda plaza 1 and 2 schemes is the local Engineering Consortium.
