Al Mouj Muscat opens Marsa Plaza 

Muscat's first public square to become dedicated platform for cultural activities and youth talent.

April 11, 2018: Al Mouj Muscat, Oman's lifestyle destination, has yesterday witnessed the opening of Marsa Plaza, Muscat's first public square, located in the heart of Al Mouj Muscat, Oman's lifestyle destination.

Built across 5,000 square meters, Marsa Plaza will be a dedicated platform for the vibrant youth of the nation to showcase their talents and for Omanis to celebrate and share their rich culture through various events including music and dance performances as well as photography and art exhibits in the public square.

Situated at the end of The Walk, with a panoramic view over the marina and the rest of the development, Marsa Plaza will also serve as a natural corridor for people crossing paths between Al Mouj Marina, The Walk and other residential areas. Public spaces play a significant role in the social life of communities and this modern interpretation of a town square gives residents and visitors a unique space to gather and enjoy a world-class lifestyle experience. 

A masterpiece in urban design, with traditional Omani architectural influences, Marsa Plaza is bound together by a series of large scale overlapping canopies that shade the square and an excess of 2,000 square metres of outdoor and roof terraces. The canopy design, inspired by simple tectonics of traditional Omani architecture, reacts to the different sun conditions with screens of varying densities, making the leisure destination accessible year-round. Marsa Plaza is home to restaurants, outdoor cafes, an arena stage, a fountain area and beautifully landscaped pedestrian trails. 

Commenting on the opening of Marsa Plaza, Nasser bin Masoud Al Sheibani, CEO of Al Mouj Muscat, said: “Marsa Plaza will provide a perfect setting and platform for Oman’s diverse artists to showcase their works, sharing and celebrating our rich Omani culture with both visitors and residents. In addition to culturally connecting people, I believe a year-round public outdoor space like ours will also encourage healthier lifestyles and promote happiness and more quality time spent together amongst families and friends. We are looking forward to hosting all kinds of events, activities and concerts at Marsa Plaza that will offer diverse recreational, tourism and entertainment experiences to the community.”

The new leisure destination marks another high-point in the delivery of high quality residential, commercial, leisure and hospitality products by Al Mouj Muscat, which has become one of the region’s sought-after mixed use developments. The world-class waterfront community provides luxury lifestyle and leisure experiences through an assortment of residences, parks, pools, dining outlets, retail stores, a golf course and marina. The five-star Kempinski Hotel Muscat also opened its doors in March 2018 marking a key milestone in the successful establishment of Al Mouj Muscat as a leading integrated tourism complex.

Al Mouj Muscat is the Sultanate’s lifestyle and leisure destination and is a unique public-private venture between the Government of the Sultanate of Oman and the UAE-based Majid Al Futtaim Properties.
