A main contractor has been appointed to work on a new mixed-use project near Muscat international Airport.

Real estate developer Tasmim has named Unique Contracting as main contractor for its Habitat project in Al Khuwair, which is expected to complete by December 2021.

Construction works have already commenced on the site, and demolition works will begin soon, a statement said, adding that the development is touted to be a "destination to live, work, shop or simply hang-out".

The project is being developed under a joint-venture between Omani conglomerate Shanfari Group of Companies and European architecture firm Mandressi.

“The appointment of the contractor and soon to commence substructure works, means that we are several key steps closer to creating great moments for everyone, every day, in the Al Khuwair community,” said Mr Alessandro Daverio, CEO of Tasmim.

Designed by Mandressi, Habitat will include 44 residential units, 44 retail units, one roof top restaurant and 118 office units.

For business purposes, Habitat will offer flexible layouts for any type of company, the latest technology, dedicated parking spaces and valet parking.

Jan-Willem Krijgsman, project development manager at Tasmim said: “Habitat is situated amidst a panoramic view, and will offer a mix of residential, commercial, shopping, and entertainment venues on an impressive scale.” 

The project’s sales office is scheduled to open during the fourth quarter of 2019.
