New warehouse development for rent in Oman
Leading international real estate consultancy, Cluttons has been appointed as the lead marketing and leasing agent for a new, large scale warehouse development in Rumais, with units expected to be ready for rent at the start of May 2015.
The First Logistic Services Company’s masterplanned development is in a prominent and easily accessible position on the Muscat-Sohar highway in Rumais, approximately 1.5 km from the Naseem Gardens junction and 30 km to the West of Muscat International Airport.
The location allows easy access to and from Muscat Expressway, and the under construction Batinah Expressway and proposed Barka railway goods yard. It is ideally positioned for occupants looking to service the Muscat and interior markets, particularly following the recent movement of sea freight from Port Sultan Qaboos to Port of Sohar.
The first phase is under construction on the eastern part of the 81,000 sqm development site. It provides 36 warehouse units in three different types with floor areas of 500 sqm to 1,000 sqm. A notable feature is that the 12 units along the front of the development have been designed as retail warehouses, which will allow occupiers to take advantage of the prominent highway frontage.
“Our appointment reflects our successful track record and expertise in the warehousing sector across the region, allied to our ability to offer market-leading services. As the development nears completion, we are witnessing increased market interest,” said Matthew Wright, head of industrial for Cluttons Oman.
