Emaar Middle East plans to attract family buyers to its multi-billion dollar Eastern Province residential project with facilities including mosques and schools.

The Eastern Province Municipality has recently approved the masterplan of the first US $12 billion (SR4.6 billion) phase of the Al Khobar Lakes development. Al Khobar Lakes features more than 2,000 private villas in nine villages, with retail and leisure amenities for family lifestyles.

The first phase will have 11 mosques including a Grand Mosque for Friday prayers, educational complexes spanning 28,000m2, a shopping centre, community centre, coffee shops and restaurants, healthcare facilities and other amenities.

Al Khobar Lakes is a 4.3 million m2 lakefront gated residential community featuring Arabic and Andalusian architectural styles set in 80,000m2 of lakes and ponds.The development is near Al Khobar, Dhahran and Dammam.

The project is served by the Dhahran-Beqaiq Highway and Abu Haidar Street, which connects to Bahrain, Al Khobar, Dammam and Riyadh, and is less than 45km from King Fahd International Airport. A construction timetable or contract tenders have not yet been announced.

One of the largest gated communities in the Eastern Province, Al Khobar Lakes offers detached and semi-detached three and six-bedroom villas on plots of various sizes, with privacy a design priority.

Al Khobar Lakes fills the need for single family villas that are much sought after by the upwardly mobile Saudis who want a suburban lifestyle with modern amenities," said Alaa Abdullah Saed, chief executive officer of Emaar Middle East.
