UAE retail operator Majid Al Futtaim is building its fifth and biggest project in Oman, a huge shopping mall with the country’s largest indoor snow park.
Mall of Oman is set to open in the first quarter of 2021. It has more than 145,000m² of retail space as well as a multitude of lifestyle and entertainment amenities.
These include the largest Vox Cinema and the biggest indoor snow park in the country, the developer said in an update on the project.
Mall of Oman will also have a Magic Planet family entertainment centre and a 12,200m² Carrefour Hypermarket.
Ghaith Shocair, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Shopping Malls, said he expects the development to create jobs and opportunities for the local economy.
“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.
“These objectives are aligned with Vision 2040 and we are privileged to be able to contribute to this vision as long-term partners and investors. 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.”
