urban development in the holy city of mecca

This signature urban development project in the holy city of Mecca stretches over 1.2 million m² and when completed will provide more efficient multimodal transportation to a central pedestrian boulevard accommodating more than a 100,000 people travelling to and from the Al-Haram Mosque.

Above ground, the project includes a large ring road and bus rapid transit station. The new city development will have 100,000 residential units, hotels and apartments and 28,000 hotel rooms, alongside commercial and recreational areas as well as a new mosque.
