70,833 new housing units planned for Saudi Arabia

A number of residential projects have been put into motion in Saudi Arabia according to local news source Arab News. Saudi Arabia is said to be in line to receive 70,833 units under the programme with Jeddah due to build 15,980 residential units split over two separate projects.

Sultan Al Dosari, spokesman for the Makkah region, told Arab News: “Housing projects are a positive step towards radically solving the problem of growing demand on houses. These steps came in accordance with the directions of Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal and in compliance with the orders of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.”

The two projects in Jeddah include the Prince Fawaz neighbourhood project of 10,838 residential units with associated community facilities and an airport scheme with 5,142 residential units and the affiliated amenities. In total the pair of schemes will see the realisation of 18 mosques, 32 kindergartens and 30 schools. Two housing projects are also planned for Makkah with 593 residential units destined to rise in Al Qunfudah and 260 units in Al Kharma.
