Jaber Al Ahmad New City


Approximately 25 km west of Kuwait City, overlooking the western end of Kuwait bay, lies the future city of Jaber Al Ahmed.

Prompted by the growing population of Kuwait City, Jaber Al Ahmed will become home to some 80,000 people, providing a unique and progressive style of living for all its occupants.

Recognizing the importance of community, Pace has led a contemporary design structure; neighbourhoods of around 100 families living within walking distance of local schools, mosques, parks and shops. Smaller, safer areas providing community living in a growing city.

The city will also play host to a growing number of private and public sector offerings; universities, technical colleges, hospitals and a major commercial centre will ensure that Jaber Al Ahmed City is one for the families and one for the future.
