Dubai-based developer and operator of shopping malls, communities, retail and leisure facilities, Majid Al Futtaim, has announced that construction of Mall of Oman is on track. The announcement comes following the completion of two major infrastructure milestones on its fifth and biggest lifestyle destination in the Sultanate of Oman.
Considered to be the biggest project of its kind in the Sultanate, Mall of Oman will have 1.6 million sqft of retail space, a variety of dining outlets and a range of lifestyle experiences. The mall will also include Oman’s largest VOX Cinemas, a Magic Planet family entertainment centre, a 131,000 sqft Carrefour Hypermarket and the largest indoor snow park in the Sultanate.
Set to open in March 2021, the Mall of Oman confirmed delivery of new roads and flyovers, connecting the mall to the Muscat Expressway.
The development of Mall of Oman is expected to contribute to the Sultanate’s Vision 2040 on economic diversification by creating meaningful job opportunities and raising the living standard of its citizens and residents.
“The tourism and retail sectors are integral to Oman’s economy and are poised to drive economic growth and contribute to diversification in the country. With these objectives aligned with Vision 2040, we are privileged to be able to contribute to this vision as long-term partners and investors. By developing the Mall of Oman, we continue to contribute to the growth of the local tourism industry and enable job creation for residents both during and post-construction. A development project of this size and scope is beneficial to Oman’s citizens and residents. It will positively contribute to economic and social development in the Sultanate,” says Ghaith Shocair, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Shopping Malls.
An extensive roads upgrade to interchange number 6 on the Muscat Expressway has been completed, along with four new bridges and an underpass serving the mall to ease access to the mall. Also, large retaining walls and utility divisions have been completed to facilitate the works. The new access will add to the convenience of visiting the mall as it will directly lead to the 5,200 dedicated parking bays. More than a kilometre of the 12-metre-high retaining walls are now in place, as well as the initial road directional signage for Mall of Oman.
