The Makkah Gate Co, a non-profit firm owned by the Al-Balad Al-Ameen Development and Urban Regeneration Co, the investment arm of Makkah Municipality, said the project will accommodate all citizens who may have to leave their homes in Makkah because of the Grand Mosque expansion.

“The project is a natural expansion of the holy city and is only 42 km away from Jeddah,” said Mahmoud Al-Maghrabi, deputy director of the company’s department of land affairs.
