The local developer Kingdom Holding Company has awarded the local Omrania & Associates a contract to masterplan and design the infrastructure for its 16 million square metre Kingdom Riyadh Land real-estate development.

Omrania will be in charge of all master planning elements for the real-estate project. This will include managing the traffic impact study, environmental impact assessment and other studies required to complete the masterplan.  Omrania will also carry out the supervision of the infrastructure work on site.

Kingdom Holding has also awarded US-based Hart Howerton (HH) a contract to design the masterplan for its 3.8m square metre Kingdom Oasis Land hotel resort.
