Oman government planned to initiate construction and development works on the country’s first integrated residential complex by the end of the year.
The project cost is estimated at one billion dollars. It will feature retail, commercial, and shopping facilities in addition to the housing units which are divided into three main categories: apartments, townhouses, and villas.
The township will stand on a total area of 355,000 square meters on the outskirts of the Sultanate Capital. The new project will lie only minutes away from Muscat according to a senior government official.
Siham Al Harthy, the director general of real estate development at the Ministry of Housing, mentioned that the project will be one of many residential complexes to be scattered around the Sultanate in an attempt to solve the nation’s housing problem.
She said also that the project will include green spaces, mosques, schools, recreational venues, and a number of other amenities.
Al Harthy cleared that the project’s design work is carried out by a reputable consultancy and it is about to be completed.
