Kingdom City is not a typical residential compound, it’s designed to reflect the textures and hues of nearby surrounding desert, it also conveys a sense of casual elegance, with generous measures of flair.  Consisting of 240 villas and accommodations spread over a strategically located 250,000m² site in Riyadh, Kingdom City provides everything from Luxury four bedroom Villas with private pools to studios and guesthouses with all the facilities and amenities one would expect.

Kingdom City has become one of Riyadh’s most desired residential compounds, due to its community design appeal, architectural continuity, sensitivity to natural environment, landscape design, creative use of space, materials, amenities, and overall community site plan. Over the years, these qualities have continued to fuel robust sales and produce happy tenants.

The residential areas were planned around the central facilities.  Each area has it’s own identity.  Each residential area was laid out in a series of clusters further breaking down the perceived scale of the large development.  Visual interest has been achieved by the mix of units and the emphasis on a high quality landscaping.

The focus of the layout are the central facilities which provide a wide variety of administration, commercial, sports and recreational facilities.  The commercial facilities comprise the management offices, library, laundry, minimarket, restaurant, cafe, studios and hairdresser, all laid out to create a souk atmosphere of intimate spaces and covered walkways.  There is also a kindergarten and a clinic provided for the use of the residents.
