Mall of Oman, Majid Al Futtaim’s fifth and biggest lifestyle destination in the sultanate, is on track after the completion of two major infrastructure milestones.

Set to open in March 2021, the Mall of Oman confirmed delivery of new roads and flyovers, connecting the mall to the Muscat Expressway, and the completion of the Muscat Electricity Distribution Company (MEDC) Primary Substation.

Considered to be the biggest project of its kind in the sultanate, Mall of Oman will have 145,000 sq m of retail space, dining outlets and a range of lifestyle experiences.

The mall will also include Oman’s largest VOX Cinemas, a Magic Planet family entertainment centre, a 12,200 sq  m Carrefour Hypermarket and the largest indoor snow park in the sultanate.

“The tourism and retail sectors are integral to Oman’s economy and are poised to drive economic growth and contribute to diversification in the country,” said Ghaith Shocair, CEO, Majid Al Futtaim Shopping Malls.

“By developing Mall of Oman, we continue to contribute to the growth of the local tourism industry and enable job creation for residents both during and post construction. A development project of this size and scope is beneficial to Oman’s citizens and residents and will positively contribute to economic and social development in the sultanate.”
