Thakher Makkah prepares to welcome pilgrims and tourists
Saudi arabia–The holy city’s mixed-use Thakher Makkah project, which includes hotels, apartments, and retail spaces, has stated that it will offer great options and chances for pilgrims, tourists, and investors.
The first phase of the Thakher Makkah project, which is about 1 kilometre from the Grand Mosque, is nearly finished, according to the project’s master developer, Thakher Development Company. The second phase is scheduled to be finished in 2024.
The infrastructure facilities for the project will comprise a road system, tunnels, sidewalks, landscaping, as well as retail spaces, dining establishments, and cafes. The project will include a retail centre with 124 stores of both national and international brands, as well as kid-friendly amusement areas, cafes, and restaurants serving diverse world cuisines. The project also includes a mosque with space for 5,000 people and will have up to 10,000 parking places for cars.
According to Abdulaziz bin Saleh Al-Aboudi, CEO of Thakher Development Company, “The Thakher Makkah project contributes to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s ambitious Vision 2030, which seeks to host 30 million Umrah pilgrims and 6 million Hajj pilgrims by 2030.” The project offers both visitors and locals a wonderful experience because it is close to the Grand Mosque and just a few kilometres from the sacred locations of Muzdalifah, Mina, and Arafat. This guarantees a relaxing stay and easy connections.
“We are committed to completing the infrastructure and master plan in accordance with the timeframes established for both,” Al-Aboudi continued. “Shortly, we will be revealing more specifics and data about the construction progress and the project’s numerous economic and non-economic benefits.
There are more than 320,000 square metres in Thakher Makkah. It will have about 100 land parcels when it is finished, with some being used for residential, commercial, and service-related purposes. There will be many types of residential and hotel apartment units available, as well as ownership options.
The Radisson Hotel, the Park Inn by Radisson, and the Novotel Hotel, the biggest hotel in the world in terms of room count, are a few of the international hotels that will open in Thakher Makkah.
The goal of Thakher Development Company is to transform Makkah’s real estate development industry. The company’s mission is to help Makkah develop sustainably and to make the holy city the top travel choice for tourists.
The Thakher Makkah project is expected to provide 18,000 indirect jobs in addition to 15,000 direct jobs, with a total projected project cost of SR26 billion ($6.93 million).
