In addition, the construction of one of the project’s residential buildings has started. The unit, which will be fully furnished, will be used for a live demo for the project. The marketing campaign will be launched mid-June and the selling phase will start in July. The construction works for the first phase of the project will start in August.
Speaking about the upcoming phases of the project, Al Hadhrami added that the Sales and Marketing Center is expected to be completed beginning of June. One of the residential units will be converted into offices to receive applicants and educate them about the project.”
As for those who are entitled to apply for these residential units, Eng. Yarub pointed out that the neighborhoods will be available for those who have applied for land grants in South Al Batinah Governorate and Muscat Governorate.
