I’ve driven by this structure many times and couldn’t really figure out was it was. Well, the mystery has finally been solved. I recently learned that this structure was begun several years ago – as a private residence. But apparently it has become an abandoned project, for whatever reason. It really does resemble some sort of spaceship and although it’s hard to tell, the angled sides actually stick out above and beyond the wall in front of it. What’s even more remarkable is its location. The plot of land it sits on is in a very ritzy area of the city amidst palaces and amazing villas. Perhaps the influential neighbors complained, causing the project to come to a screeching halt?

About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
