KUWAIT-based real estate developer Alargan International Real Estate Company (Airec) has launched the Qurm Hills project in the heart of Oman’s capital. The mega project will take shape on a total land area of 165,000 sq m.

Consisting of 109 plots, including road networks, service facilities and landscaped park areas, the project includes a variety of residential units, and retail, commercial and office space.

Oman’s Minister of State and Governor of Muscat Sayyid Saud bin Hilal Al Busaidy unveiled the project that will be constructed behind Al Harthy Complex and the Sultan Centre in Muscat.

At the launch, Khaled bin Khuder Al Mashaan, chairman and managing director of Alargan International, said: “We are pleased to announce the launch of Qurm Hills, a project that we have meticulously planned to create a new concept in the area which will offer excellent investment opportunities.”

“We also have a line-up of several other projects in other areas in the sultanate, which will be unveiled in due time,” he said.

Alargan has appointed Parsons as the project’s design and construction consultants to ensure the project adheres to the highest standards and specifications, he added.

David Mitchell, operations manager at Parsons, said: “Qurm Hills is situated in a prime location which enjoys easy accessibility to the main road network and direct connectivity to public utility services. The project’s infrastructure has been designed according to the highest standards to ensure the protection of the project site from any possible flooding.”
