New waterfront to revitalise Muscat

OMAN: The Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning (MoHUP) has announced the master plan for a waterfront development in central Muscat, the nationís capital. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA), the $1.3 billion Al Khuwair Muscat Downtown and Waterfront Development will span 330ha (815 acres) and is set to revitalise the area.

The district will comprise five key areas: a marina; a recreational waterfront lined with beaches and sports facilities; a canal walkway; a cultural quarter; and a Ministry campus. Incorporating residential areas, extensive mixed-use developments will cater for government and commercial businesses, together with arts, culture and leisure spaces.
Continuing Muscatís rich tradition as a historic port city, the Al Khuwair development will reflect local culture, with the marina acting as the cornerstone of the project. It will feature a range of attractions while emphasising green spaces and public realm along with waterfront, including destination dining experiences, luxury retail outlets, health and wellness facilities, hotels and residential spaces.
