The MEED Quality Awards Projects recognize companies at the forefront of the industry who introduce projects and add value to communities, both on a social and economic level. Salalah Gardens Mall and Residences was selected as the "Leisure & Tourism Project of the Year" for Oman by a panel of judges who rated projects based on economic, social and environmental impacts, engineering and design challenges as well as design methodology and innovative techniques.



Commenting on the award win, URC's Executive Vice President, Renimah Ali Al Mattar said, "It brings us great pleasure to announce that Salalah Gardens Mall and Residences has been selected as "Leisure & Tourism Project of the Year" for Oman by a reputable and regional organization such as MEED. We as developers have a new role to fill, which is to ensure that our commercial projects contribute to the economic and social development of the city. URC had to overcome various challenges with respect to sourcing contractors and materials readily available in order to introduce a project of this standard for the first time in Salalah, Oman."



Completed in Q2 2013, SGM embraces traditional Omani architectural design with a large landscaped courtyard and integrates modern interior and finishings. The mall has a total built-up area of 86,074 sqm and introduces a wide variety of shopping, dining and entertainment options such as the first modern cinema complex in Salalah, and an indoor arcade and play area.
