District Shops, Jeddah
|Project:||District Shops, Rayadah Housing Complex, Saudi Arabia|
|Client:||Rayadah Investment Company|
|Services Provided:||Civil and structural engineering for concept and detailed design|
The development is situated north of the city of Jeddah and the main King Abdul Aziz International Airport. The entire plot measures approximately 2.5 million m2 and is in Obhur Al Janoubia, just South of the Sharm Obhur Al Janoubia Creek and is directly north of the Madinah Highway, which runs parallel to the Corniche Road.
The district shops are to cater for residential components of the development. These shops and services will accommodate uses such as retail, service retail, cafés, retaurants and offices. These functions will strengthen the sense of community within each neighbour along with other local facilities. The design seeks to create a comfortable and secure environment while creating a sense of place for the surrounding community. This is achieved by creating smaller pedestrian friendly spaces where people can relax, while also providing sufficient surface car parking nearby.
The typical district shop unit is a two-storey building with surface car parking. The ground floor consists of 6 small retail units with a central lobby to service the office space above on the first floor.The overall architecture appearance of the building is that of a domestic feel and character. The external and internal finishes chosen are high quality and durable in nature.
