Green Riyadh - Al Aziziya Neighbourhood
WSP and their partner Place Dynamix were appointed to provide Landscape design and sustainable neighborhood irrigation infrastructure, with associated highway advice supporting the Green Riyadh Strategy. This programme was initiated in 2018 by the Royal Commission for Riyadh City (RCRC) to increase the City’s livability and improve the overall environment, health, and well-being of the citizens and residents.
This commission and report’s focus is the Al Aziziya neighborhood, which is within the southwest quadrant of the city.This exciting project aims to increase tree and vegetation coverage within the design provided for 54 new parks with connections to community focal points such as mosques, schools, and other public buildings. This will also include streetscapes and encompassing internal roads within the neighborhood boundaries spanning approximately 160km. Place Dynamix provided exciting, sympathetic, and complimentary design interventions for a diversity of open spaces to enhance the lifestyle and social interaction of the neighborhood residents without detracting from overall accessibility and movement.
There are a series of KPI’s that are referenced throughout the project to ensure that the aims of the Green Riyadh Strategy are monitored and achieved throughout the project programme.
