MAF reveals plans for $70mn Muscat mall expansion

City Centre Muscat to get 10,000m² more retail space, 60 new outlets

Muscat, Oman.

Work on the project is expected to begin later this year, which should see around 10,000m² of retail space added to the mall, capable of accommodating 60 shopping and dining outlets.

“City Centre Muscat is undergoing an exciting transformation and Majid al Futtaim is pleased to be a positive contributor to the local economy while fostering the growth of the sultanate’s retail and entertainment landscapes,” said Dimitri Vazelakis, executive managing director for Shopping Malls at Majid Al Futtaim – Properties.

The project involves the expansion of City Centre Muscat’s main ground floor into the existing car park space. A retail corridor connecting each end of the shopping mall is planned to maximise traffic flow and accessibility for visitors.

A car park designed to accommodate 700 vehicles is already under construction at the mall.

City Centre Muscat recently completed Phase 1 of its redevelopment, a $21.6mn (OMR 8.3mn) project which saw the opening of a ten-screen VOX Cinema, as well as work on Magic Planet and its food court dining area. Phase 2 of City Centre Muscat’s redevelopment is expected to be complete in 2015.
