Most of Saudi Arabia’s major cities

To help cater to this increased spend, most of Saudi Arabia’s major cities are expected to see a strong increase in retail space in the coming years, with the capital, Riyadh, alone expecting an additional 600,000 sq metres or more on top of the existing 2.3m sq metres of leasable area by 2014. Much of this space will come through developments in the suburban areas of the city, reflecting the focus on decentralised living and the government’s efforts to improve residential stock, trends that are being mirrored in some of the Kingdom’s other large urban centres.
