Blue City


BLUE CITY Stage (Phase 1)

Project Description

Blue City is a new city being developed for 200.000 people in the Sultanate of Oman. It will be a fully integrated city and an attractive tourist destination, stretching along the beautiful Omani coastline.

When completed, the city will include 20 hotels, hospitals, and university. It will have shopping centers, marina, and schools. Blue City supports the government Vision 2020 in diversifying the Sultanate's economy from fossil fuel. The new city will generate large scale employment upon completion.

The sections designed by Tombazis Associates are mainly residential developments consisting of apartment blocks within the Blue City master plan. Some of the sections are developed in an Omani/Arabic style and others in an international, modern style. To complement the apartments extensive leisure facilities are provided, along with public parking areas and extensive indigenous planting.
