The master plan for the Rua Al Madinah has been revealed. Rua Al Madinah is a mega mixed-used real estate planned on 1.35 million sqm of land, east of the Prophet’s Mosque in Saudi Arabia. Additionally, the development is one of the mega projects in the holy city of Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah, Saudi Arabia.
Rua Al Madinah project is being developed and implemented by Rua Al Madinah Holding Company. The latter is a Public Investment Fund (PIF) company that specializes in the development, operation, and real estate investment in Madinah.
The infrastructure work for the new project has been inaugurated. The ceremony was graced by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz. The Chairman of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs and Chairman of PIF were also present.
Features of the Rua Al Madinah
The development seeks to boost the hotel inventory of the host region, including the luxury segment. It is thus set to add over 47,000 hotel rooms by 2030. Moreover, it will comprise open and green spaces comprising covering approximately 63% of the project’s total land area. That means only about 83,000 sqm will be a built-up area.

Additionally, Rua Al Madinah offers a variety of integrated transport solutions. These include a metro station, underground parking, and nine bus stops for visitors alongside tracks for self-driving vehicles. The introduction of the transport solutions is to facilitate visitor access to the prophet’s mosque. Additionally, they will support both commercial and residential activity while contributing to the creation of job opportunities.
According to Rua Al Madinah Holding Company, the project will also contribute to achieving the goals of the Hajj, Umrah, and travel sectors outlined in Vision 2030. Through the project, the company will revive the city’s cultural and architectural heritage, which has been carefully considered throughout the development process.
Saudi Arabia is doing the best it can do to honour the holy place it its visitors. Some would say it is just fine the way it is, which in fact it is, but Saudi Arabia takes a further step to respect the place and spend as much on it.
Wow! What an amazing project to give a little bit back for Al-Madinah which was the place which hosted the prophet it his message.
