Majid Al Futtaim recently announced the construction of Mall of Oman.
The project when it opens in 2020 will be the largest integrated retail, leisure and entertainment destination in the Sultanate. The super-regional mall will feature 350 outlets including the first snow-park, an 8,000 sq m play area, and a Little Explorers edu-tainment centre.
The Mall will also include the Sultanate’s first Abercrombie & Fitch and largest VOX Cinemas and Magic Planet in the region. It is estimated that Mall of Oman’s development will generate 29,000 direct and indirect job opportunities.
City Centre Sohar is the next project set to open in 2018. The regional mall will be home to 100 retail outlets. These will include businesses owned and managed by Majid Al Futtaim. The mall will create an estimated 8,000 employment opportunities in Oman. My City Centre Sur which is scheduled to open in 2017, will be Majid Al Futtaim’s first community mall in Oman. The project will create more than 3,500 direct and indirect job opportunities.
“We are proud to renew our commitment in the Sultanate through our OMR 705 million investments, which include development of Mall of Oman, City Centre Sohar, and My City Centre Sur, as well as additional investments from our retail, leisure and entertainment businesses,” said Alain Bejjani, chief executive officer of Majid Al Futtaim – Holding.
