The Jeddah Development & Urban Regeneration Company (JDURC) initiated the Salman Bay Housing Project as part of the planned expansion of Jeddah. The area of the development covered approximately 3.02 million m2 and was expected to include 1,250 buildings offering 25,000 residential units.
JDURC commissioned SAK for design review for the infrastructure and individual buildings and construction supervision services for apartment buildings and the related infrastructure projects. The project site was divided into two parts, a northern area of 1,133,000 m2 and a southern area of 1,888,250m2, each including typical G+4 residential apartments with ground floor parking and, in some cases, retail shops.
The scope of the scheme proposed an integrated, mixed-use development of 25,000-housing units in 1,250 residential buildings; 24 mosques; 14 schools; a hospital and two polyclinics; the Red Crescent station; and a police station.
