The ‘Heart of Jeddah’, a key location sandwiched between Al Salam Palace and the brine desalination plant, is where Central Jeddah Development Company, a fully-owned subsidiary of the Public Investment Fund (PIF), is building a major new global destination.
The project, which is being built as a part of Downtown Jeddah, is alive with natural elements that are sustainable and designs that rely on renewable energy and cutting-edge systems and technologies.
The contract calls for the implementation of marine and infrastructure works, the first-stage demolition of 400 buildings and infrastructure, and the rerouting of 6.5 km of infrastructure services, including electrical ground installations, sewage pipes, and water supply.
