PLAIN SAILING IN SAUDI

Towering above Jeddah’s North Corniche, the Headquarters Business Park stands like the sail of a dhow that has traversed the Red Sea coast for centuries – a fitting and iconic landmark for Saudi Arabia’s second largest city.

Description

Jeddah is recognized as the number one commercial hub in the Middle East as well as one of the most innovative cities in the region. It is also the gateway to Islam’s most holy city, Mecca. With this in mind, the Headquarters Business Park was designed to be not only an exemplary building, but most importantly, one that is functional and intelligent.
