Kuwait Projects Company (Holding), KIPCO, has announced the completion of infrastructure work for Hessa Al Mubarak District.

The project’s infrastructure, developed by Al Ahmadiah Contracting, was completed in December 2017, according to KIPCO.

Handover of public facilities to government entities are reportedly ongoing, with developers expected to commence construction work “soon”.

Faisal Al Ayyar, vice chairman (executive) of KIPCO, commented: “As the master planner of Hessah Al Mubarak District, KIPCO has been keen to work with professional construction contractors to ensure that the future residents and visitors of our district enjoy an unprecedented experience.

“We would like to express our appreciation to Al Ahmadiah Contracting, whose expertise has helped us complete this phase of the project at the high standards we expect and within the projected timeframe.”

He added: “Once all necessary handover of public facilities to government entities is complete, developers can begin construction work on land plots. This includes our real estate arm, United Real Estate.”

The first comprehensive, mixed-use district in Kuwait, Hessah Al Mubarak District will feature an urban cluster consisting of retail, office, and residential components.

The land plot for the project spans 227,066m2, nearly half of which is dedicated to public services and amenities. These include gardens, open public spaces, streets, and multi-storey public parking and utilities.
