Time Out Dubai staff
With a soft opening taking place in March 2012, Muscat Grand Mall is the most recent of the region’s new shopping centres to be opened and the latest to launch in the Omani capital. Located in the Al Khuwair district, it hopes to attract nearly 20,000 visitors a day when all stores are officially opened. It has a gross floor area of 67,000 sqm divided between 160 new outlets, with top retail names including Sharaf DG, Homes R Us, Tim Horton's café, Shoe Studio, Garage and Aeropostale, not to mention Carrefour which will be the mall’s anchor tenant. There will also be a multiplex cinema, a food court, a children's entertainment area and a mix of international restaurants and cafes. The centre is part of the mixed use Al Tilal Complex being developed by Al Madina Real Estate and will later be accompanied by residential and commercial projects.
