KUWAIT CITY, March 25: In a significant development aimed at addressing housing needs for low-income workers, the Kuwait Municipality has officially handed over the project site for the construction of the first integrated residential city in Subhan. The project site spans an impressive 40,000 square meters and is slated to accommodate approximately 3,000 workers upon completion.

The handover ceremony, marking the commencement of the project implementation, was attended by key officials including Eng. Mishal Al-Arada representing the municipality, and Abdulaziz Al-Mujil representing the Kuwait Real Estate Company. Also present were Eng. Saud Al-Dabbous, the Director General of the Municipality, Eng. Maysaa Bushahri, Deputy Director-General of the Projects Sector, and Ahmed Al-Balushi, a representative from the Ministry of Finance.

The project aims to establish an integrated residential city meeting high technical standards within the next year and a half, under the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) system. It will include health, environmental, and service projects to cater to the needs of the workers.

Expressing gratitude to the engineering teams involved, Engineer Saud Al-Dabbous emphasized the importance of the project in addressing housing challenges and eliminating single living arrangements in residential areas. He highlighted the goal of developing comprehensive housing complexes that incorporate social, recreational, and commercial services to fulfill the requirements of the workers.

Among the notable features of the project are 16 residential complexes, equipped with bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, laundry facilities, and storage rooms. Additionally, the city will feature two commercial complexes housing restaurants, cafes, and retail stores, along with essential administrative and government buildings such as a guardhouse, police station, and government offices. Recreational amenities including multi-storey halls and open entertainment spaces will also be incorporated, alongside public services such as internal road networks, parking lots, and bus stations. The entire city will be enclosed by a perimeter wall with designated entry and exit points.

The initiation of this ambitious project marks a significant step towards providing quality housing and essential amenities for low-income workers in Kuwait.
