Construction of Riyadh’s Ajmakan project to begin in 2009

05 November 2008
Construction work on the SR9bn ($2.4bn) Ajmakan real estate project is due to begin in the second quarter of 2009.

The developer, the local Land Holding Real Estate & Development Company, recently received approval to construct the gated community from the Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA). The infrastructure design is currently being finalised.

Mobilisation began on site two months ago with landscaping and ground clearing.

The 2-square-kilometre development, located in the Al-Khozama district in the north of the capital, will include commercial buildings, villas and a five-star hotel.

Japanese architect Nikken Sekkei carried out the detailed design of the project (MEED 8:10:08).
