The massive expansion of Kuwait-based Tamdeen Group’s 360 Mall has commenced through the development of the new state-of-the-art Sheikh Jaber Al Abdullah Al Jaber Al Sabah International Tennis Complex, which will put Kuwait firmly on the world’s professional tennis map. The newly expanded mall with the tennis complex is expected to open doors by 2019.
The expansion project will feature several new to the market retail brands, a signature five-star hotel, in addition to outstanding restaurants, a ballroom and a health club. The upgraded retail experience will leave shoppers with a multitude of new brands to choose from, while the hospitality and F&B facilities will create a new luxury paradigm.
“This will be the first time in the world that retail, sports and entertainment come together under one roof and on this scale. When the expansion work is complete, 360 Mall will be further enhanced and together with the tennis complex will become a landmark in Kuwait. We aim to promote the very best brands from around the world under one roof whilst simultaneously encouraging a healthier and more active lifestyle for Kuwait residents,” says Mohammed Jassim Al Marzouq, chairman, Tamdeen Group.
The extension to the retail mall will increase the footfall by at least 30% to over 18 million discerning visitors. The tennis complex will have a combined stadium seating for over 7,600 people across two main arenas, each with the capacity to hold 4,000 and 1,600 people, respectively, eight indoor courts with over 500 seats and eight outdoor courts with 1,500 seats.
In order to enhance the event experience, spectators will have direct access to the tennis arena from 360 Mall, the 2,000 car multi-storey parking and from the 6th Ring Road. There would be a seamless relationship between the mall, the tennis facility and the hotel.
“The main tennis arena when not being utilised for tournaments will serve as an entertainment anchor for 360 Mall and provide a venue for leisure and recreation with a year-long calendar of events and activities,” Al Marzouq reveals.
