Muscat: The Experience and Promotion Centre located at Muttrah Corniche will be opened to the public in the third quarter of 2019.
Along with exceptional views of the Muttrah Corniche and Gulf of Oman, the centre will have an Omani art gallery as a tribute to the rich cultural influences of this historically significant location.
The centre will also feature a popular Omani seafood restaurant which will be operated by an Omani food and beverage operator.
An experienced Omani firm has been appointed for the management and maintenance of the Experience and Promotion Centre, wherein visitors will be able to see the project masterplan and get a sense of the residential developments through the show flats that will be on display.
As part of the Mina Al Sultan Qaboos transformation agenda, it was also established that several opportunities for employment will be generated during both developmental and operational phases. Accordingly, several Omani resources have been recruited in various departments, and the plan includes the deployment of Omani staff at various stages of project development as the project progresses.
DAMAC was chosen by the Government of Oman to develop Mina Al Sultan Qaboos into a world-class, waterfront mixed-use destination through a joint venture with OMRAN, the government’s investment, growth and development arm. ‘Mina Al Sultan Qaboos Waterfront’ is being redeveloped into a USD 2 billion integrated tourist port and lifestyle destination that includes hotels, residences, as well as a dining, retail, and leisure offering.
“Along with transforming the area into a vibrant tourist destination, it is extremely important that sustainability studies are conducted while developing such an iconic location. In addition to adding value to Muttrah’s economic infrastructure, it is also necessary to protect the essence and well-being of the surrounding community,” a spokesperson from Muttrah Tourism Development Company said.
