MECCA, Saudi Arabia – Imagine a hotel with 10,000 rooms and covering more than 15 million square feet, which is large enough to accommodate the population of a small town. This is the reality of an under-construction, mixed-used development expected to open in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, in 2017.
Named Abraj Kudai and located approximately one mile from the Mecca site, the expected cost is $3.5 billion, with features including a shopping mall, convention center, food court, bus station and several rooftop helipads.
The hotel, consisting of 12 towers, will be constructed to resemble a traditional desert fortress (10 towers will provide four-star accommodations; two will offer five-star amenities).
