(MENAFN) Saudi Arabia’s Arriyadh Development Company said that it expects to receive government approval for a project worth more than $3.47 billion in capital Riyadh, Reuters reported.

The firm’s Chief Executive, Khalid Al-Dughaither, said that this $3.47 billion project is part of the redevelopment plan for downtown Riyadh and will be funded largely by the government and members of a consortium. The eight-partner consortium will include Saudi Arabia’s Dar Al-Arkan, Saudi Real Estate Co and Lebanon’s Solidere, he said.
