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."
