Many buildings are enlarged here in Jeddah by building up. Residential buildings are built very close together and take up most of the area of the lots they occupy. Quite often a one or two story building might be all the owner can afford to build at the time, and then maybe a few years down the road, adding more floors is a popular option. The integrity of the design of the building in this photo is being followed, so that once the project is completed, it will be hard to tell that the top floors were actually added on later.
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.
