OMAN. Zahrat Al Khareef - Dhofar, the luxury housing project in Salalah, developed by Iskan Oman Investment Company, sets new standards for smart living. Completed well within the targeted project completion date, the complex promotes positive community living, offering the convenience of lifestyle, location, space and leisure.

Changing the skyline of the region, it reflects the very essence of Salalah, launching a trend where modern living blends with the natural environment.

This much sought after destination is also fast becoming a smart realty investment option for homebuyers from across Oman and the GCC. Offering excellent investment potential from both rental and capital appreciation perspective, Zahrat Al Kahreef - Dhofar also offers the opportunity for visitors and residents of Salalah alike to have their own special home in this rapidly expanding and important city.

The Foundations for a Smart Lifestyle

As the first gated community in proper Salalah and a one-of-its-kind residential complex, Zahrat Al Khareef - Dhofar promotes wholesome community living with a family friendly focus. Its 1, 2 or 3 bedroom and 4 bedrooms duplex apartments are part of a community that has the entire comforts essential to enhance a contemporary lifestyle.

Zahrat Al-Khareef – Dhofar Project is strategically located in the Al-Wadi area in the heart of the city, the project covers an area approximately 29,000 sq. m. Close to the airport, schools, hospitals, shopping malls and to the naturally-beautiful Salalah Gardens, the complex amenities include a clubhouse, equipped with a modern gymnasium, swimming pools and other recreational facilities. The professionally designed landscaping, and ample parking for residents, further compliments the smart lifestyle of this community. .

“The main factor in any good construction project is the quality of the finishing elements” said Eng. Nasser Al Shibli, Technical Manager at Iskan Oman Investment Company.  He added “No compromise was made on this aspect and only high quality branded finishes are provided. All the accessories meet European standards. The key criterion in selecting finishes was durability matched to exquisite style”.

Smart Planning

As the flagship project of Iskan Oman Investment Company, the project planning for the Zahrat Al Khareef-Dhofar project was focused on customers and quality. Good planning processes were followed for all aspects of the project with everything thoroughly thought of even before the project broke ground.

The project started in difficult economic conditions – despite all these conditions and with good planning, Iskan Oman fulfilled its promise to its clients and completed the apartments on the target date. “Meeting our deadlines reflects Iskan Oman’s Commitments towards its Clients” Said Mr. Adil Mohammed Al-Bader, Chairman of Iskan Oman.

Construction works for phase one, consisting of 218 unique apartments and built-in amenities like a swimming pool and the sports club, commenced in April 2010 and was completed on the 29th of December 2011 as per the plan. Completing the construction in just 20 months was a challenging task for Iskan Oman, but all the members who worked on the project were well up to it.

Smart Business Prospects

Salalah is the second largest city in the Sultanate of Oman where millions of square meters of land are being developed for the future. Huge government and private projects are setting up in the city, increasing the employment opportunities and the population in the city. In addition, there is a steady increase in the number of visitors to Salalah each year during the Khareef Season. All this has led to a shortage of quality secured housing and a high demand for good housing facilities.

Mr. Al Bader commented “As an investment opportunity, the Zahrat Al Khareef - Dhofar project is based on thorough market research, which brought to light this lucrative real estate opportunity. The demand is driven by Omani and other GCC nationals”

The promoters of Zahrat Al Khareef-Dhofar also offer homebuyers Property Leasing Management, for a healthy return on their investment.

It is a unique investment opportunity in a prime location – the largely untapped Salalah market has appeal across the GCC region
