Saudi Arabia has launched two new projects for the construction of 734 villas for citizens within ongoing plans to tackle a housing supply gap, a newspaper in the largest Arab economy reported on Tuesday.
One project involves the building of 440 villas in Al-Majmaah city near the capital Riyadh while the other comprises 294 villas in the Northwestern town of Sakakah, the Arabic language daily Okaz said.
Citing a Housing Ministry statement, it said the two new projects are part of "Sakani" (my house) launched by the Ministry a few years ago to construct 300,000 houses at reasonable prices for Saudis.
Besides villas, the latest two projects comprise schools, mosques shops, parks and other facilities, the paper said.
