Bandar Seri Begawan - Bruneians are welcome to own properties currently being developed fronting the Holy Mosque or Masjidil Haram in Mecca.
Roslan Omar and Anwar Ali, the Directors of Oasis Properties Pte Ltd, said the company is marketing properties at three developments in Mecca for interested buyers in Southeast Asia, including Brunei Darussalam.
They added that Muslims from this country can also own residential suites and commercial spaces in Abraj alBait Shopping Complex - a complex of seven luxurious towers about 100 metres from the Holy Mosque in Mecca which has been fully completed.
They can also buy residential suites at Hajar Tower which will be fully ready by the end of next year. "Another development, the ZamZam Tower is marketed under a time-sharing scheme or Sokouk Al-Intifa'a."
"The three properties are located at one giant complex that will house seven skyscrapers including one high-rise which is higher than the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur," they said.
Built for the purpose of benefiting the two Holy Mosques in Mecca and Medina, all the profits from this project after 24 years will be used for the endowment of the two mosques, said Roslan.
They added that the 1.4 million square metre project is developed by a developer in Saudi Arabia on a wakaf (donated) land worth US$ 2 billion. Oasis Properties is the principal marketing agent in Southeast Asia for the three developments.

He said the lowest price is $15,000 for seven-night stay in any year in a studio-type unit. "The highest is $1,050,000 for a Royal Suite that can ' accommodate eight persons during any Haj season for 44 nights in one year," he said.
For the Hajar Tower, buyers have the right to stay for 25 years. The price of one unit or apartment from floor 21 to 23 is around $33.000.000.
He said units at the Abraj al-Bait Shopping Complex cost $4,950 per square metre. "It is definitely a good investment since more than six million Muslims visit Mecca in one year," he said. -- Courtesy of Borneo Bulletin
