Barr Al Jissah breaks ground on Oman 'smart homes'

MUSCAT, December 21, 2017

Barr Al Jissah, the developer of a key luxury destination in Oman, has broken ground on its Al Mina Waterfront Residences and Yacht Club, a key 'smart' homes project in an area located outside capital Muscat, said a report.

The development includes a residential mix of apartments, penthouses and villas, retail boardwalk as well as the Al Mina Private Yacht Club, reported the Times of Oman, citing a top official.

"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," stated CEO Firas Matraji while speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony.

The 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 a dedicated BBQ area, he explained.

"The USP of this project is that these will be smart homes. Any device in your home that uses electricity can be put on your home network and at your command. You can switch your TV or video or manoeuvre your window blinds on your iPad," he added.
The Omani developer is also planning to launch an app wherein all the homes can avail concierge services.

"For example, before you enter your home you want your fridge to be organised, you want laundry to be picked up and dropped home, all will be done via this app. It will be a Barr al Jissah app," said the top official.

The 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, he added.

The project will be officially handed over to the tenants in 2020.
