Commenting on the project, Al-Towaijri said, "The beauty of Darat Al-Hada is highlighted by the diverse modern lifestyle designs that provide comfort and settlement, and embodies the quality and prestigious elements produced by the company.
The project is characterized by its location and vital proximity to many important areas and facilities, such as the Diplomatic neighborhood, Convention Palace, Royal Court and King Faisal Specialist Hospital.
