Jabal Omar Development Company

Jabal Omar Development was set up to invest $3.2bn in projects located at the holy city of Makkah where it is headquartered. The company will invest the capital in 40 residential towers to accommodate 160,000 Islamic pilgrims, and a prayer area for 200,000 worshippers.

An electronic sign board that overlooks the Central Area of the Grand Mosque in Makkah has been erected to count down the days to the development’s opening. The development is one of five mega development projects in Makkah.

More than 600 properties have been seized for the project, which involves constructing two five-star hotels with 935 rooms, and six three-star hotels comprising 1,255 rooms, across an area spanning 244,800 sq m. Residential buildings reaching 20 storeys to accommodate 100,000 people, 520 restaurants and 4,360 commercial and retail units are also being built.

When finished, the development will have air conditioned plazas for 100,000 worshippers, open courtyards for 120,000 people and a car park that can accommodate 10,000 vehicles.
