Al Araimi Boulevard – one of Oman’s upcoming shopping, entertainment and lifestyle destinations – is getting ready to redefine the fast growing and expanding retail landscape of Oman.
Al Araimi Boulevard, a venture of the Al Raid Group – that is one of the leading pioneers in developing futuristic shopping malls and leisure destinations in Oman – announced that the construction of this futuristic mall is well underway and will be complete in time for a September opening.
This one-of-a-kind mall combines cutting edge technology, design and emerging concepts to create a world-class, state-of-the-art facility. Al Araimi Boulevard draws inspiration from the beauty and diversity of Oman and has been designed for families and those young at heart.
With 758,855 sqft of space to be leased out, Al Araimi Boulevard will accommodate fashion concepts, F&B brands and entertainment options, which would include the likes of cinemas, an interactive wall of kinetic lighting displays and the largest Kid’s World of its kind in Oman.
“Al Araimi Boulevard will set new standards in the retail sector. It is being built on a completely futuristic design and concept that will redefine the way people shop, relax and get entertained. The mall has plenty of room for more fashion brands to make their presence felt. Al Araimi Boulevard is expected to generate over 2,000 direct and indirect job opportunities to the local workforce and will be a one-of-its-kind experience for anyone and everyone,” says Sheikh Raid Abdullah Al Araimi, vice chairman of Al Raid Group.
“Al Araimi Boulevard has been conceptualised, keeping in mind the growing shopping and lifestyle needs of customers. Malls are no longer just shopping centres, they are complete lifestyle destinations. Our aim to infuse this idea and create an outstanding destination to provide an exceptional experience for visitors is about to come to life. Al Araimi Boulevard will be a one-stop-shop for families to socialise, explore, shop, catch up over coffee or food, learn, play, have fun, relax and rejuvenate. With products and services ranging from retail, food & beverage, leisure, art, wellness and entertainment, Al Araimi Boulevard promises something for everyone,” he adds.
This two-level state-of-the-art facility will have English-style landscaping, water features, fountains and roads that include a food court, a large glass atrium and a large skylight measuring 55,865 sqft to illuminate it.
