The project covers an area of 20,000 square metres. The mosque will be able to accommodate 36,000 people. It will have a 70-metre high dome and a 270-metre minaret.

The cultural centre will have a 16,100 sq m auditorium and a 21,800 sq m library.

The scheme also covers the construction of a postgraduate school known as Dar al-Quran, covering an area of 21,300 sq m with three levels of underground parking measuring 180,000 square metres.

The engineering consultant is Canada’s Dessau-Soprin (MEED 30:6:06).
