The yet-to-be-named Hilton hotel/apartment complex in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

CHICAGO, IL.  – Goettsch Partners will serve as the design architect for a new five-star, 900-key business hotel and serviced apartment complex in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, working closely with local architects, Omrania & Associates, as well as Surrey-based company David Wrenn Interiors.

The client is the General Organization for Social Insurance, an agency of the state and the project is located along the Eastern Ring Road, a major thoroughfare that links King Khalid International Airport with the downtown area/ Comprising two towers connected by a large podium, the project includes a 20-story, 650-key hotel and a 14-story, 250-unit serviced apartment building.

The new complex will be operated as a Hilton property, and will include a variety of food and beverage outlets, two outdoor lounges, 70,000 square feet of meeting facilities, and an impressive 44,100-square-foot multipurpose hall—the largest in the city. Leisure and recreational facilities include a men’s spa, health club and pool, as well as similar private facilities for women.

The project will be the largest hotel in the capital and the first in Riyadh specifically designed and built for Hilton. The approximately $450 million project is currently in the final design phase and is scheduled for completion in 2013.
