Progress continues on the construction of the pedestrian-friendly residential community in Al-Hinakiyah, in the western region of Saudi Arabia, commissioned by the Saudi Ministry of Housing, with planning and design by Omrania. Infrastructure for the garden-like, 47-hectare development is now in place, providing a glimpse of its final form.


Omrania is working with the Ministry of Housing on the master planning of 26 new residential communities in the nation’s rapidly growing western region, with a total land area of 4,500 hectares. The project in Al-Hinakiyah is part of the Ministry’s “land & loan” program, which aims to meet the growing demand for single-family homes.

The 410 lots, each 500 square meters, are oriented for privacy, and planned with sufficient density to support an attractive public realm composed of gardens and tree-shaded plazas. In addition, the community offers centrally located services such as kindergartens, schools, retail, mosques, play areas, and a health center. Planned features include:

  1. ideally proportioned lot sizes and home designs
  2. community planned to fit the Saudi way of Life
  3. convenient services
  4. appealing public gardens and plazas
  5. safe for pedestrians, easy for drivers
  6. durable and sustainable infrastructure
