Hejaz Residential District forms part of the King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), a new city located 100 km (62 miles) north of Jeddah. Celebrating the Saudi way of life through contemporary Islamic design, the district is designed to provide a community-focused place to live and play. Set within a landscaped, semi-gated environment, residents can enjoy a variety of open spaces that promote physical activity and a sense of well-being. A large linear park connects the neighborhoods and activates the full length of the development, while a district center offers a range of community amenities. An array of housing types provides high quality accommodation for professionals and their families—including apartments, mews houses and detached villas.
