A twin tower development worth $37.3m (SAR140m) will be constructed in Makkah by Saudi's Disabled Children's Association (DCA). 

Prince Sultan Bin Salman, president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage and chairman of DCA's board of directors signed contracts with representatives from national construction companies for the project. 

The 12-storey towers, named after King Salman, Saudi Arabia's Ruler, and the late Crown Prince Sultan, are expected to become a permanent source of revenue for DCA's activities. 

The development will be situated on land that belongs to DCA in Naeem District on Hada-Taif Road. 

A project schedule of 36 months has been allotted for construction works. 

King Salman laid the foundation stone for the project last year, and has also donated $13.3m (SAR50m) for the project.

According to Saudi Gazette, each tower will feature a hotel, with parking facilities, restaurants, and shopping malls. 

King Salman Tower's built-up area spans 20,000 sqm, and its hotel will comprise 255 rooms, 14 suites, and a mall.

Prince Sultan Tower, spanning 18,000 sqm, will also feature a hotel with 250 rooms, a shopping area, and a food court.
