Situated to the west of Riyadh, Ad Diriyah district is undergoing significant development. The Diriyah Gate master plan aims to preserve, celebrate and transform historic Diriyah into a desirable destination with global appeal that will evoke pride amongst the Saudi community. Known as Saudi Arabia’s cultural capital, and enjoying a rich 300+ year heritage with a UNESCO World Heritage Site at its heart, Diriyah Gate is one of a number of key projects under the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, a strategic framework which will diversify Saudi’s economy, bringing new opportunities through public services, infrastructure, recreation and tourism. The Diriyah Gate initiative features cultural and heritage projects, hospitality, retail and education facilities, and targets 27 million local and international visitors by 2030.

Celebrating the historical heart of the Kingdom, whilst bringing new economic opportunities for citizens and opening Saudi’s cultural heritage to the world, we are proud to support the Kingdom’s drive towards Vision 2030 with involvement in critical master plan projects such as this.
