Oman Tourism Development Company SAOC (Omran) has tasked DAMAC International and SSH with breathing new life into one of the country’s sea terminals.
The Mina Sultan Qaboos Waterfront Regeneration Project seeks to revamp the coastal site into a tourist and lifestyle destination.
The development - set in the 200-year-old centre of commerce in Muscat - will include two main zones, namely tourist port regeneration areas, as well as other project sites, such as Shotayfi Village, Al Rabia hilltop parcels, and Hay Al Mina.
SSH has been appointed to detail the master plan and complete the infrastructure of the mixed-use waterfront destination.
In addition, SSH is carrying out design consultancy services for the buildings and components of Zone 1, Bab Al Mina, which covers a built-up area of approximately 150,000sqm and includes a four-star hotel, residential blocks comprising 430 units, and several retail and entertainment offerings.
“SSH is very happy to be working collaboratively with respected companies such as Omran and DAMAC on a project of this calibre,” said Omar Nuri, General Manager Oman at SSH.
“We look forward to delivering an outstanding development that will have a positive social as well as economic impact on Oman.
“The ultimate vision is that the regeneration of the Mina Sultan Qaboos Waterfront area will contribute to the sultanate becoming a leading tourism destination in the MENA region.”
