Roshn Unveils MARAFY: A Mega Project In Jeddah Boasting An 11-kilometer Manmade Canal

ROSHN Group, the leading real estate developer in Saudi Arabia has announced the launch of MARAFY, an innovative development located north of Jeddah. This transformative project will accommodate more than 130,000 residents and feature an impressive 11km long and 100m wide manmade canal that connects to Obhur Creek.

David Grover, Group CEO of ROSHN Group, emphasized the importance of this announcement, stating that MARAFY will be a game changer, elevating the standards of development in the region and making a positive impact on the city of Jeddah.

Grover further expressed his pride in launching MARAFY, highlighting its potential to position Jeddah as a world-class destination and contribute to the objectives of Vision 2030 by creating a thriving economy.

MARAFY’s canal will provide a waterfront experience comparable in size to renowned cities such as Chicago, Stockholm, Hamburg, and central London. This integration of the marine environment will bring fresh vitality to Jeddah, a city with a rich history of welcoming travelers, and pilgrims.

MARAFY aims to rejuvenate Jeddah by creating an urban water corridor that connects homes, communities, and nature while also incorporating commercial spaces and amenities. The development will strengthen Jeddah’s position as a regional hub by offering world-class residential, retail, lifestyle, leisure, and entertainment, ultimately becoming an iconic landmark within the city.

To enhance connectivity, MARAFY’s diverse waterside districts will be seamlessly linked to one another and the rest of Jeddah through an intermodal transport system. This system will include water taxis, bus lines, a dedicated Metro Red Line station, and a direct canal link to the King Abdulaziz International Airport, ensuring convenient accessibility for residents and visitors.

MARAFY demonstrates the possibilities of harmoniously blending modernity with cultural heritage. This approach can inspire other Middle Eastern countries to leverage their own rich histories, architectural traditions, and natural resources to create innovative and captivating spaces that reflect their unique identities.
