The King Hussein Business Park (KHBP) is strategically located adjacent to one of Amman’s busiest highways, offering easy access to downtown and other cities in the region. Situated in the heart of the business park, Building Four houses the management offices for KHBP as well as both local and international companies. These range from a local, family-owned insurance company to Arabia Weather to Oracle. Designed to offer world-class amenities and an amenable business environment, KHBP integrates open green space with mixed-use development that includes restaurant and retail space. The business complex offers office spaces that can employ over 4,000 people and is entirely walkable, with a bicycle and shuttle bus provided for faster transportation.
The four-story Building Four was retrofitted with green measures to improve its conservation of natural resources and CO2 emissions. The building has a skylight with higher thermal performance glass that brings natural daylight to the building’s inner courtyard while controlling external glare to reduce energy use. Low-flow faucets and dual flush water closets control water consumption. These green features are expected to result in utility savings of over $4,800 per month. In the renovation of the building, existing floor slabs, flooring, roof, walls and window frames were all repurposed.
Building Four was originally designed by Turkish architect Yuksel Holding and developed by the Business Park Company. KHBP is expected to expand in the near future to meet the growing needs of the business sector in Amman. King Hussein Business Park – Building Four has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
