Mall of Oman on track for Q1 2021 opening

September 2019

Majid Al Futtaim, a leading shopping mall and leisure pioneer across the region, said that construction of Mall of Oman – its fifth and biggest lifestyle destination in Oman – is on track, having completed 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 Interchange No 6 on 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, a variety of dining outlets and a range of exciting 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.

To ease access to the mall, an extensive roads upgrade to Interchange 6 on the Muscat Expressway has been completed, along with four new bridges and an underpass serving the mall. In addition, extensive retaining walls and utility divisions have been completed to facilitate the works.

The new access will add to the convenience of visiting the mall as it will directly lead to the 5,200 dedicated parking bays. More than a kilometre of the 12-m-high retaining walls are now in place, as well as the initial road directional signage for Mall of Oman. 

The recently completed and energised MEDC primary substation will allow the nine distribution substations in the mall to be progressively energised, which will allow the completion of the central cooling plant.
