KEO was commissioned by EMAAR, The Economic City (EEC) to perform concept master planning, infrastructure, and landscape design services for Townhouse Communities 2 & 3 (TH2 & TH3) located within the Al Murooj District of King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC). Responsibilities involved performing the full range of conceptual design consultancy services for the master plan, landscape and infrastructure requirements for the townhouse communities, in line with KAEC’s general design principles and planning guidelines.

In addition, KEO developed an individual set of urban design guidelines for TH2 & TH3 respectively, to ensure the urban identity and architectural flavor of the high-end residential communities were achieved. The driving objective of the project was to achieve smartly optimized residential master plan layouts for both TH2 and TH3, offering the maximum number of marketable townhouse plots, without adversely impacting quality of life or compromising on the quality of the public amenities within the development.
