7 June 2012

Real estate developer Al Suwaiket has officially opened the SR350m ($93.32m) Dhahran Tower on the Dammam-Alkhobar Highway in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia.

Al Suwaiket chief executive officer Abdullah said: "There are a number of important elements associated with this landmark building; the most important aspect is that it has 46 stories and a helipad, it is the tallest tower in the Eastern Province; it is a purely residential building with no commercial offices, and is meant to cater to the high-end market."

The around 200m-high tower features 291 two and three bed-room apartments and has three elevators, out of which one will be dedicated for freight delivery while each of the apartments will have separate cooling systems.

Al-Suwaiket Euro Village general manager AY George said: "You have 24-hour fool-proof security, spa, jacuzzi and hamam facilities, both for men and women, on the 5th floor; concierge service, housekeeping service - everything that one can ask for is here."
There will be two-bedroom apartments from the sixth floor to the 34th floor while the 35th floor to the 44th has three-bedroom apartments.

The property belongs to local construction magnate Mubarak Al-Suwaiket who is frequently featured among the richest Saudi businessmen, listed at No.9 in Arabian Arabian Business' Saudi Rich List 2012.
