The sea front project will occupy an area of 180,000sqm and will add tourist value to the city of Jeddah
Jeddah Mayoralty has said that work is in full swing on the South Obhur Corniche waterfront project, with the expectation that work will be complete by Q2 2023.
Spread over an area of 180,000sqm, the $61mn waterfront destination features five projects aimed at boosting the quality of life for residents, and raising the per capita share of green spaces and recreational areas. The entire destination covers the extension of a 2.5km seafront.
According to the developer, the South Obhur seafront project will add tourist value to the city of Jeddah, as it will provide squares and recreational areas, sandy beaches, a bike path, a sea walkway, green spaces, and parking lots, in addition to a number of attractive investment opportunities.
In September 2022, Lifestyle Developers said it had begun construction work on the Vue in Jeddah, and, in October 2022, Alstom announced it had signed a five-year $53mn O&M contract with Jeddah Airports Company.
In addition, the project work will include infrastructure development, in addition to a marine scaffold, service and investment buildings, marine works, and complete infrastructure facilities. This includes the development of an electricity network, as well as a sewage network for rainwater and torrential rain. The project will also have surveillance cameras covering the entire site linked to a control room, Jeddah Mayoralty added.
Obhur is known for its variety of luxury resorts and beaches, which offer a number of recreational activities and events for all age groups.
Late in October 2022, Ajdan Real Estate said it would develop its $66.5mn Bayfront project on Al-Khobar Corniche.
