A community living project in Oman’s capital is on course for its 2022 handover date, according to developer Tasmim.
Habitat, which will provide Muscat with 44 residences, 52 retail outlets, one rooftop restaurant, and 118 office units on completion, is a joint ventrure between Omani conglomerate Shanfari Group of Companies and European architecture company Mandressi.
“Habitat is a result of a vision that was born to bring in an unrivalled living, working and entertainment destination to the heart of the city," said Alessandro Daverio, Tasmim CEO.
“Now, we are on the cusp of untapping the potential of a site that had a stand-alone office building, into one of the largest living, working, retail and entertainment projects in the sultanate.
“This development will not only serve as an economic engine but will also create a one-of-a-kind, mixed-use community living destination for present and future generations to enjoy.”
While Unique Contracting Company has been appointed as general contractor for the project, no MEP contractor has yet been designated.
An announcement is expected some time this month.
Jan-Willem Krijgsman, project development manager at Tasmim added: “We are creating a new paradigm for how people and companies will work, as well as live and enjoy time with family and friends.
“Through Habitat, it is our aspiration to push the boundaries of design and construction and introduce a model of urbanism, centered on people.
“As one of the first true mixed-use community living developments of scale to come to Al Khuwair, Habitat will bring next generation offices, residences and a Shopping destination together with beautifully landscaped open spaces, world-class dining, shopping and entertainment offerings.”
