The project was unveiled by Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Abdulaziz, the Governor of Riyadh region, at a special ceremony that was attended by the Minister of Municipal and Rural Affairs and Housing, Mr. Majid bin Abdullah Al Hogail and other senior government officials.

Speaking at the launch, Prince Faisal hailed the kingdom’s leadership for its support of the housing sector and also lauded the Ministry of Housing and NHC for its vital role in helping provide decent living standards to Saudi citizens.

A total of 18 investment agreements worth more than $6.4 billion were signed by NHC and the Ministry of Housing with leading real estate developers for the Al Fursan suburb’s projects.

NHC Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Mohammed bin Salih Al Batti said the new suburb comes with a new concept of housing and distinguished modern styles that carry the spirit of architectural originality with global standards that meet the quality of life requirements, providing a unique experience with gardens, green spaces, and integrated services.

Al Fursan is the largest in terms of the area and number of housing units that NHC is implementing in partnership with real estate developers. We plan to launch the second phase of the Khuzam suburb in the near future,” Mr. Al Batti added.
