The occasion marks the beginning of the construction process for the development, which include a residential mix of apartments, penthouses and villas, retail boardwalk as well as the Al Mina Private Yacht Club.
Addressing the guests at the ground-breaking ceremony, Firas Matraji, CEO of Barr Al Jissah, said, “Following its official announcement a couple of months ago and the positive feedback we have received since the launch of the Development, we are proud to officially begin construction of this project. This development marks the newest phase for Barr Al Jissah, bringing with it a true marina lifestyle, an experience unlike any other in the country and one which will redefine the concept of luxury living in the Sultanate.”
The sleek design of the luxurious marina apartments, penthouses, duplexes and villas take inspiration from the unrivalled Riviera sea front setting, featuring an extensive use of glass, modern clean lines, generous balconies and outdoor areas; whilst retaining the destination’s Omani roots. The development aims to deliver an unrivalled sense of place and to create a much sought-after destination for relaxation, waterfront dining, and luxury living.
The sophisticated architectural design of the residences is inspired by the latest international marina styles, with the penthouse apartments offering luxury linear living together with a dual level decking that incorporates a luxurious rooftop pool. Meanwhile, the duplex apartments are designed with double height living spaces, creating a sense of space and a seamless connection to the bay and the stunning marina outlook. The unparalleled Al Mina villas offer three spacious floors of open plan living; with the ground floor featuring a smooth transition from living space to a landscaped garden area with an infinity swimming pool and dedicated BBQ area.
For the interiors, Al Mina will be utilising with the very best products from Italy, Spain, and other well reputed design companies in Europe. We also provide a dedicated in-house team to assist our home owners with any of their special interior design requests at their property.
“A central point of this expansion is the private Yacht Club, the membership of which is exclusive to yacht owners and the residents of Barr Al Jissah. It hosts facilities such as a lounge, dive and sailing school and a fine-dining restaurant with unparalleled views alongside an upscale boardwalk and al-fresco dining. The marina construction will further fortify the reputation Barr Al Jissah holds as a world-class destination for super-yacht owners and travellers worldwide,” Matraji added.
