Abu Dhabi's $1bn Reem Mall hire firm to oversee retail delivery

Reem Mall, Abu Dhabi's new planned retail, leisure, dining and entertainment destination, has appointed Funtastic as retail design and delivery managers for the $1 billion project.

The work on site commenced in late 2015, and the mall is expected to launch in 2018.

Funtastic is a design and project management service company specialising in the retail and leisure industry with offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Singapore.

Shane Eldstrom, chief operating officer for Reem Mall, said: "Funtastic will provide important coordination and management services for our future tenants. They join a strong team of consultants and advisors who are all working together to ensure that we bring new world class levels of design, construction and operation to the local retail environment."

Sonny Tan, business head of Funtastic, added: "We are proud to be appointed as coordinators and managers of tenant construction and we know that our team will add significant business value to the development of this project. This is an exciting development to be a part of and something that we believe will have a significant impact on the retail sector in the UAE."

Reem Mall will deliver 2 million sq ft of leasable retail, leisure, and dining and entertainment choices. It will comprise around 450 stores, including 85 food and beverage outlets and a range of family-focused entertainment offerings.

The venture is being developed by NREC and UPAC.
