    Saudi Arabia is to build its own version of France’s world-famous Champs-Elysees, in historic Diriyah.
    The Diriyah Gate Development Authority’s chief executive officer, Jerry Inzerillo, announced plans for the ambitious project during the Saudi-French Strategic Partnership for Designing Sustainable Cities for Tomorrow tour in Riyadh.

    He said: “The Crown Prince (Mohammed bin Salman) wanted to connect the cultural identity and the heritage of Diriyah Gate 1 to the university (King Saud University) in Diriyah Gate 2, thereby connecting the Kingdom’s past and its present with its future. “That connection point allows us to build a new boulevard and the crown prince is someone who loves France.
    “The Saudi contemporary art museum will be on that boulevard. That will be our homage to the Louvre (museum in Paris).

    “Also on that boulevard will be the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia convention center, opera house, the Grand Mosque in addition to the King Salman mosque.

    “We are now 97 percent done with the design of what we call Diriyah Gate 1, and we are very advanced in Diriyah Gate 2 and will be starting the design of Diriyah Gate 3 soon in addition to the 60-kilometer Wadi Safar development.

    Huge developments are in the pipeline for the Diriyah Gate Development Authority before the end of the year.
    Group chief executive officer, Jerry Inzerillo, told Arab News at the Future Investment Initiative forum that Diriyah would see the opening of Al-Bujairi district with 20 new restaurants, and two kilometers of Wadi Hanifah with areas dedicated to jogging and riding.

    In addition, Inzerillo said: “We’re going to be opening up three experience centers, the new community center. We’ll open up the UNESCO World Heritage Site for the whole world. This is in November and December of 2022.”

    He said the developments were a “huge triumph” for the Saudi leadership and that there were more in store for next year. “Then in 2023 we have the first hotel opening and the first museums opening.

    Renewed as Saudi Arabia’s cultural capital, the historic city of Diriyah will showcase Saudi Arabia’s 300+ years of authentic culture and history by delivering one-of-a-kind inspiring heritage experiences, educational and cultural opportunities, world-class residential living, and outstanding lifestyle offerings to include shopping, entertainment, and dining experiences.
    Located just 20 minutes northwest of Riyadh’s city center, Diriyah will be transformed into one of the world’s foremost lifestyle destinations for culture and heritage, hospitality, retail, and education, and will become one of the world’s great gathering places.

    At the heart of the development is the At-Turaif UNESCO World Heritage Site, an iconic mud-brick city, and the home of the First House of the Al Saud family and capital of the First Saudi State, preserved and restored for future generations.
    Under the mandate of Diriyah Gate Development Authority, the project contributes to Vision 2030, by its target of 27 million local and international visitors by 2030. This supports the national tourism strategy which aims to host 100 million worldwide tourists in the Kingdom by 2030.
