Majid Al Futtaim Properties has started construction of its newest community mall, My City Centre Sur in Oman, following the appointment of Oman Shapoorji Company LLC (OSCO) & Shapoorji Pallonji Mideast LLC (SPML) as the project’s main contractor.
Aimed to be completed by 2018, My City Centre Sur – an OMR15.2 million investment – will offer 177,605 sqft of GLA with a tailored mix of practical and lifestyle-oriented stores and services. The shopping centre will feature a 73,195 sqft Carrefour Hypermarket as well as 50 select stores including F&B outlets.
“The appointment of the contractor and ground-breaking of My City Centre Sur means that we are several key steps closer to creating great moments for everyone, every day, in that community,” Says Ghaith Shocair, CEO – shopping malls, Majid Al Futtaim Properties.
“We have been serving the Sultanate as a trusted construction and facility management partner for more than four decades now. It is such an honour to be Majid Al Futtaim’s appointed main contractor for new My City Centre Sur project in Oman. We believe that our businesses must touch the lives of people meaningfully and by being associated with the region’s retail pioneer, we are confident that we will deliver on our promise,” adds Mohandass Saini, CEO of Oman Shapoorji Company LLC/ Shapoorji Pallonji Mideast LLC.
When marking Majid Al Futtaim’s 15 years of investment and relationship-building in the Sultanate of Oman during 2016, the company announced plans to increase its total investment in the Sultanate to OMR705 million by 2020, which includes the development of Mall of Oman, City Centre Sohar, My City Centre Sur, the continued development at Al Mouj Muscat and the expansion of its existing retail and entertainment businesses including Magic Planet, Carrefour and VOX Cinemas.
Majid Al Futtaim’s planned investments are anticipated to create more than 42,000 direct and indirect job opportunities in Oman in the next five years, including a significant percentage of Omani nationals seeking career development. The continued investment in Oman’s retail, leisure and entertainment infrastructure by Majid Al Futtaim supports the country’s National Strategy for Tourism 2040, which targets a 6% rise in the contribution of the tourism sector to GDP and a near doubling of visitor numbers to five million annually.
