Raza, the real estate arm of Saudi Public Pension Agency and a subsidiary of Al Ra'idah Investment Company, said work was in full swing on two of its major residential developments in the kingdom - East Village and Jeddah Obhur City - which are due for delivery in the third quarter.
East Village is the residential cluster of Digital City in Riyadh, an ambitious project of Raza and the Kingdom’s first integrated, community-living development.
Digital City features commercial, retail and residential offerings underpinned by international-standard amenities and facilities. It is a community for the innovative and forward thinkers and fosters the spirit of a knowledge-based economy, stated the Saudi developer.
The Digital City project comprises two phases. The Phase One, which is already completed, offers significant office space in multiple configurations across 400,000 sq m of commercial buildings, as well as a conference center and a Crowne Plaza Hotel.
East Village is the second phase of the project, a residential community featuring 2,200 units built around a community retail plaza. Combined together, these two facets of Digital District form a modern and inclusive mixed-use community destination, said the statement from Raza.
East Villa will feature key amenities such as a community mall, parks, and children day care centres.
