The Avenues – Riyadh
Located at a prime position overlooking the intersection of King Salman and King Fahd roads, and just a few minutes away from King Khalid International Airport, The Avenues – Riyadh is set to become the largest leisure and retail destination in the Kingdom.
The Avenues – Riyadh will cover an area of 1.9 million square meters and will feature a shopping mall, which will house more than 1,300 stores with an area of 400,000 square meters.
It’s a mix of luxury retail, high street brands, in addition to traditional stores that are modelled on a traditional Riyadh Souk in respect to the region’s traditional retail architecture. The design reflects Riyadh’s contemporary lifestyle and culture, offering a diversity of districts, each designed in a different theme in harmony.
The mixed-use development project also includes five multi-purpose towers, consisting of hotels, exhibition, conference halls, residential apartments, offices, medical facilities, and parking for 18,000 vehicles, making it one of the largest commercial complexes in the Middle East.
There will be four hotels operated by Hilton, including a 350-room Waldorf Astoria, a 400-room Conrad, a 450-room Hilton Garden Inn, and a 150-room Canopy by Hilton, the first of Hilton’s lifestyle Canopy by Hilton brand in the Middle East.
The shopping mall is slated for completion in 2023, followed shortly by the office tower, the Waldorf Astoria hotel and the remaining three towers.
