The Waja suburb will boast more than 20,000 housing units.

Saudi Arabia has handed over more than 900 new housing units within Al Wajah suburbs in Dammam to citizens under its ambitious Sakani housing programme.

 These include 649 out of 674 residential units under Nasaj Town project and 286 out of 728 units under Mad project in the Eastern Province.

 With 90 per cent of the work completed on the remaining units, the project is set for handover as per schedule, said Sakani.

The Waja suburb, which is spread over a 10-million-sq-m area, will boast more than 20,000 housing units, that can accommodate 100,000 people. Strategically located, the project is a 25-minute drive from landmarks in the Eastern Province, including King Fahd International Airport, Dammam Corniche, and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in Dhahran and a 15-minute drive to Dammam station.
