Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea Development Company begins coastal village complex works

Red Sea Development CompanyThe Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) has commenced development of the Coastal Village, a residential and commercial area that will house the workers, staff and management of The Red Sea Project

Construction of corporate offices is underway on the Coastal Village site. Scheduled for completion by Q2 2020, the offices will become the centre of operations for the development and will accommodate 500 people, as well as provide supporting amenities including a 160-seat restaurant and 100-seat auditorium.

TRSDC has signed a contract for construction of the first 10 residential apartment buildings within the Coastal Village, which is expected to house around 14,000 people who will be employed in roles at the destination when the first phase opens in 2022.

Additionally, the village will provide temporary housing for 25,000 workers who will be building the infrastructure and assets.

John Pagano, CEO of The Red Sea Development Company, said, “The Coastal Village will be a vibrant and engaging community combining the highest quality accommodation, environmentally sensitive corporate offices and a wide range of leisure and recreational facilities, all delivered in a way that is fully aligned with our commitment to sustainability.”

The construction partner for the design and build of the management offices is Saudi group Al Majal Al Arabi, which recently signed a separate contract with TRSDC to build 5,000 residential units for construction workers at the destination.

The offices will have a total floor space of approximately 7,000 sq m and have been designed in three independent campus elements.

The construction partner for the development of the residential apartments will be Saudi Amana Contracting, a subsidiary of UAE-based Amana Contracting Group, which recently won the contract to design and build a management hotel to serve the Coastal Village.

The first five apartment buildings are expected to be completed by Q3 2020 and the remaining five by Q4 in the same year, delivering a total of 300 apartments.

The Red Sea Project is on track for completion by the end of 2022, including 14 luxury hotels offering 3,000 rooms across five islands and two inland resorts. It will include a marina, entertainment facilities, an airport, and the necessary supporting logistics and utilities infrastructure. Since announcing the commencement of operations at its Project Base Camp earlier this year, TRSDC has announced the commencement of construction for its one sq km landscape nursery, a 3.3 km crossing to a hub island and 10,000 residential units for construction workers.
