Majid Al Futtaim, a leading shopping mall and leisure pioneer across the region, said that construction of Mall of Oman, its fifth and biggest lifestyle destination in Oman, is on track, having completed two major infrastructure milestones.
Mall of Oman, Majid Al Futtaim’s fifth and biggest lifestyle destination in the sultanate, is on track after the completion of two major infrastructure milestones.
Set to open by March 2021, the Mall of Oman confirmed delivery of new roads and flyovers, connecting the mall to the Muscat Expressway, and the completion of the Muscat Electricity Distribution Company (MEDC) Primary Substation.
Considered to be the biggest project of its kind in the sultanate, Mall of Oman will have 145,000 sq m of retail space, 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 12,200 sq m Carrefour Hypermarket and the largest indoor snow park in the sultanate.
The development of Mall of Oman is expected to contribute to the sultanate’s Vision 2040 on economic diversification by creating job opportunities and raising the living standard of its citizens and residents.
To ease access to the mall, 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. In addition, extensive 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.
