A supermarket and spa will open in less than two months at Barwa Housing Programme’s Mesaimeer Compound, it has been announced. “An ad hoc committee has been formed to tackle the problems facing the tenants,” the newly-appointed CEO of Barwa Real Estate Company, Yousif bin Rashid al-Khater, said. The official, who was on a field visit to the compound last Thursday, explained that the committee would be invested with powers to examine all the needs of the inhabitants at the compound and finding solutions for them. Gulf Times had reported on Friday that the tenants of the compound were in a dilemma as the nearest grocery was 8-10km away. Al-Khater also announced that a huge budget has been approved by the senior leadership of the company to implement the needed solutions. “There is a specialised company that has been assigned the job of doing the regular maintenance and fixing all the problems of the compound,” he said. The official has, along with other representatives of the company, reviewed the complaints raised by the inhabitants of the compound including the frequent bursting of water pipes and the power outage experienced by some residential units. He said that all the weak power units would be replaced by stronger ones. Also, the problems regarding satellite TV reception will be solved in a way that allows each residential unit to control its favourite selections of the TV channels. Al-Khater also visited the Barwa village project, located on the Al Wakrah road, where he was briefed by the project manager about the work progress. The project is scheduled to be completed by the first quarter of the next year. Al-Khater pledged to remove all the obstacles that the project might face.
