Ecological residential development in the regional style with 246 residences, mosque, integrated parks, riverwalk, gastronomy and leisure components.

The Khawr Awqad Townhouse Residences are ushering in a new era of sustainability, simultaneously capturing the long-standing culture of Dhofar while infusing it with elegance and sophistication. The residential program on the site sits above a podium of covered parking. Buildings are gradually terraced from the highest level at the north end of the site to the street promenade level towards the south and west. The terraced podium is programmed with a landscaped network of public spaces, plazas, pedestrian walkways and gardens and allows for enhanced open views to the khawr and sea.   Effortlessly combining contemporary design and traditional Dhofari details, the architecture varies in scale and character to give each neighborhood a unique look and feel that ranges from eclectic Arabic villa-style buildings to more compact units. A network of undulating foot trails guide visitors and residents to lively squares, green parks and peaceful waterscapes that encourage a vibrant community life and provide areas for rest and rejuvenation.
