Jeddah New Central District
Jeddah, KSA
Master Plan
Info

The Jeddah New Central District is a multipurpose neighborhood integrating a variety of
urban functions, giving a dynamic, distinguished and self-sustaining identity to the city
with a leisure park, a regional mega-mall and numerous luxurious hotels. The new district
also acts as a regional and international sporting hub through the new Sports City, with its
Olympic Stadium and multipurpose arena.

The master plan of the Jeddah New Central District was developed based on a 45-hectare
prototype district, centered around the multiple residential, commercial, catering and
entertainment facilities. The allocated plot for the project was the abandoned 130-hectare
site of the old airport located southeast of the city. The Jeddah New Central District aims
at reviving the old port area, and the developed master plan takes full advantage of the
site's pedestrian and vehicular links to the Old City.

Although over 330,000 m2 of built-up area were projected for the project, the size of the
parcel allowed a low density to be maintained, resulting in a zone with a pleasant living
environment whose integrated character offers a unique experience to the residents of
Jeddah.
