The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), backed by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman-led Public Investment Fund (PIF), has started developing its Coastal Village, a residential and commercial area that will house the workers, staff and management of The Red Sea Project.

Scheduled for completion by Q2 2020, the offices will accommodate 500 people and provide supporting amenities including a 160-seat restaurant and a 100-seat auditorium.

The construction partner for the design and build of the management offices is Saudi group Al Majal Al Arabi, which recently signed a separate contract with TRSDC to build 5,000 residential units for construction workers at the destination.

TRSDC has also signed a contract for construction of the first 10 residential apartment buildings within the Coastal Village.

The Coastal Village will be available for 14,000 people who will be employed in roles at the destination when the first phase opens in 2022. The village will also provide temporary housing for 25,000 workers who will be building the infrastructure and assets.

The construction partner for the development of the residential apartments will be Saudi Amana Contracting, a subsidiary of UAE-based Amana Contracting Group, which recently won the contract to design and build a management hotel.

Commenting on the Coastal Village development update, TRSDC’s CEO John Pagano said: “Delivering and operating a destination as ambitious as The Red Sea Project requires a happy, healthy and fulfilled community of people enjoying a high standard of living and the amenities necessary to support a modern lifestyle.”
