Many apartment buildings here in Jeddah are constructed in a similar fashion – imagine several really long train cars lined up and more stacked up on top 4 or 5 deep. The differences come in the finishing materials and the color of reflective windows chosen. Many of these buildings are built in identical pairs.
My theory is that the owner of the buildings builds one for himself and his family, and the other to rent out as income.
Of course this is only a guess, but I would imagine this is true in many cases.
Many apartment buildings also have business space available on the ground level, providing additional rental income for the building’s owner.
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.
