The project will be developed by Zakher Investment while Taameer Investment will hold 100 per cent ownership, said a statement.

The development will also comprise a luxurious office tower with the best business suites and shall be an icon of the city, said the statement.

The development is expected to create economic and social benefits for the community as it is located in the heart of Muscat at Al Khuwair on Dohat Al Adab Street.

Taameer Investment and Shaza Hotels will sign the management agreement at the ATM in the presence of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdullah Al Qatabi, Oman's ambassador to the UAE, and other senior executives.
