Mall of Qatar confirms 85% construction completion
The developer is "into the last 15%" of completing the mall's core and shell, Mall of Qatar's Shem Krey told Construction Week
Construction work for Mall of Qatar, the 5 million sqf development situated in Al Rayyan, is 85% complete.
Shem Krey, deputy managing director of Mall of Qatar, told Construction Week that the five-star hotel being developed alongside the retail complex is also 85% through its schedule.
"We're into the last 15% of the completion of the mall, in terms of core and shell," Krey added.
In September 2015, Krey confirmed Mall of Qatar has delayed opening of its mega facility until the end of the third quarter of 2016.
At the time, Krey said the firm decided to move the opening date to Q3 in order to allow more time for the tenants to fit out at the development.
“It’s a nice problem to have,” Krey added.
“We are going to have some of the best flagship stores in the region, more importantly, with unique designs exclusive to the Mall of Qatar that will require more fit out time."
