Ras Al Khaimah-based developer, Al Hamra, has announced the completion of phase one of the revamped Manar Mall. The northern emirate’s premier retail and leisure destination hosts a total of 164 international and local retailers, food outlets and entertainment options.
Having completed the main construction work, the fit-out progress of individual units is in various stages. Some vendors have already started to fit-out their branded units. The first phase of the refurbishment project is expected to complete by Q3 2018 when landscaping and infrastructure work for phase two is carried out.
“The design team has been busy to get the right look and feel. We’re now ready to move to the second phase of development where our focus will be on securing more top range brands,” says Benoy Kurien, general manager of Al Hamra Group.
“We are creating something exceptional for Ras Al Khaimah and the rest of the Northern Emirates with diverse retail, F&B and entertainment complex, helping us to realise our corporate vision as the largest and most visited mall in the Northern Emirates,” he adds.
Once fully completed, the GLA will increase from just over 300,000 sqft to nearly 600,000 sqft. It will add another 80 retail destinations, including those from the Lals Group, with brands such as Homes R US, Carter’s, Daiso Japan, Miriade and US Polo Assn.
The mall enjoys a consistently strong footfall, welcoming over 300,000 people every month with residents and tourists both taking advantage of the large F&B outlets, the relaxed atmosphere and a wealth of shopping. The mall is already home to renowned brands such as Carrefour, Marks & Spencer, H&M, Sephora, M&Co, New Look, Next, Mothercare, Boots Pharmacy, Bath & Body Works, Chili’s, McDonald’s and KFC, together with home-grown brands, including Paris Gallery, Sun & Sand Sport, Damas and E-Max, with a Fun City and a seven-screen NOVO Cinemas.
