Jeddah is the commercial capital, largest port and second largest city in Saudi Arabia. Jeddah’s significance in the Middle East cannot be understated as the city stands as the gateway city to Islam’s two holiest sites in Makkah and Madinah. With one of the world’s fastest growing populations and an increased number of pilgrims visiting each year, there has been an increased strain on infrastructure and natural resources, but with the help of Arcadis, new mobility and water reuse plans are aiding the city’s sustainability efforts.
The Jeddah Strategic Masterplan has earmarked ten target areas necessary for the city’s development including urban territory and land use planning, environment and transportation. Arcadis has been appointed to develop the architectural vision for a new, comprehensive public transport system in Jeddah. This includes design of metro stations, high-speed trains and even the branding which will empower Jeddah with more jobs and transportation options. A large new attraction to the city skyline will be the world’s new tallest building, The Kingdom Tower, where Arcadis is leading the project management.
