architecture and planning
The Al Nakheel property lies along the Arabian Sea at the edge of the Dammam / Kohbar region. The master plan involved a full design, parcelation, land use, phasing and development proposal to be submitted for local planning approval. The land is composed of four separate parcels each abutting the waterfront, so the master plan was designed to distribute the land uses, and development density equitably across the entire property.
The design is organized around a central loop boulevard that establishes a gateway and a powerful image to the community. In lieu of the need for large public opens spaces or parks, the development relies on the adjacent corniche park that is to be designed as part of a subsequent phase of this project.
