Residential units are likely to be constructed around the stations of Riyadh Metro. 

2bAli Al-Jabir, undersecretary for planning and studies at Saudi’s housing ministry, said this move is a part of the agency’s tenth development plan.

The Kingdom has witnessed a lack of diversity in housing products for “several years”, he continued.

The housing ministry has established 22 programmes to rectify this, Al-Jabir added.

It is likely the homes around Riyadh Metro will be developed in collaboration with the Arriyadh Development Authority, the agency behind the rail project. More info
