Demand for affordable housing is likely to increase in tandem with Oman’s population, dominated by a high-proportion of young people. Even though one in every five Omani families in Muscat and North Batinah own homes, there is a shortage of affordable rental accommodation in Muscat.

 In addition to the construction of 12,000 affordable homes as part of the 8th 5-year plan (2011-15) there are plans for prime residential projects in Muscat.

Saraya Bandar Jissah’s US$593mn Integrated Tourism Complex
will offer 398 high-end housing units, spread across five residential zones.
