City Centre Muscat's redevelopment project has added 10,000sqm to the mall and created up to 1,350 new jobs for the community
Majid Al Futtaim's City Centre Muscat unveiled the final phase of its $90.8m (OMR35m) expansion under the patronage of HE Ahmed in Nasser bin Hamed al Mahrizi, Minister of Tourism.
The redevelopment project has created up to 1,350 new jobs for the community and added 10,000sqm to the mall.
Husam Al Mandhari, senior mall manager for City Centre Muscat, said: "Serving as the launch platform for new brands in Oman, elevating our customer experience to the highest level, and innovating in design were among City Centre Muscat's key aims in expanding and enhancing the mall - a tangible example of creating great moments for everyone, everyday."
City Centre Muscat invested significantly in infrastructure and design elements to create a seamless look and feel between the existing and new parts of its facility.
The architecture pays tribute to the traditions of Oman and includes enhanced facilities such as prayer rooms and restrooms throughout.
Earlier this year, the mall saw the launch of a 10-screen VOX Cinema alongside the renovation of Magic Planet and the mall's food court dining area.
"City Centre Muscat's new look, feel and size underscores its status as the leading lifestyle destination in the Sultanate, and a key asset for Majid Al Futtaim to support the needs of the communities we serve in the GCC," said Fuad Mansoor Sharaf, senior director, Property Management at Majid Al Futtaim Properties.
City Centre Muscat now features 60 new shopping stores and various F&B brands making their debut in Oman.
