Leasing has begun at a new destination for retail, business and leisure in Muscat which will also offer access to the beach.

Water-Front is S&T Real Estate’s property investment located in the heart of the diplomatic district of Muscat.

The mixed-use development offers over 25,000 square metres of leasing space for commercial, business, retail and F&B outlets, and is expected to bring new international operators to Oman for the first time.

Developed over five storeys with three basement levels of car parking, Water-Front is touted as the only leisure destination of its kind in Oman with external eating areas, walkways and promenades, and a new seafront with access to the beach.

Working in partnership with Muscat Municipality, the ground floor will offer a double-sided mall with restaurant outlets on either end.

From small boutiques to designer labels and global chains, the development will offer a retail experience encompassing fashion, beauty, lifestyle, spa, fitness and more.

The upper three levels will be leased to commercial establishments as office space.

“Water-Front is our first iconic development which will serve as a catalyst for the re-emergence of the Shatti District,” said Waqas Al Adawi, vice-chairman of S&T Group.

“The location and landscaping of Water-Front is unique and gifted, offering unparalleled views that both businesses and visitors to the development will certainly enjoy. Moreover, we are confident that the development will bring blue-chip international operators to the country, some of whom will enter the Oman market for the very first time.”

Kevin Anderson, Head of Development and Leasing of Water-Front added: “It is an opportunity for international brands that are keen to have presence in this iconic development, particularly for businesses looking to take advantage of the location and premium construction design.”
