Brookfield Multiplex will construct Gulf Related’s 2.3 million square foot mall on Al Maryah Island.
When completed in March 2018, the AU$1bn Al Maryah Central mall have international department stores Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, more than 400 other shops, 145 restaurants and cafés, and a 20-screen cinema complex. In addition Al Maryah Central will include a medical centre, a crèche, a health club, a public library and a food market as well as three rooftop parks. Subsequent phases will add residential units as well as a hotel in two high rise towers.
Kevin Ryan, managing director of Real Estate Development at Gulf Related said: “Al Maryah Central is set to become the urban centre of Abu Dhabi providing an unrivalled retail, leisure and entertainment destination to serve the needs of Abu Dhabi’s fast growing community. A project of this ambition, size and complexity needs the technical expertise and large scale mixed-use construction experience that Brookfield Multiplex offers. As one of the premium construction firms in the region, Brookfield Multiplex has worked on some of the most renowned structures in the GCC and internationally. We are delighted to have them lead this critical phase.”
Marcus Truscott, managing director of Brookfield Multiplex Middle East said: “It is a great honour to be partnering with Gulf Related and to play such an important role in the construction of this iconic development.”
Al Maryah Central’s excavation and foundation construction work has just been completed and Brookfield Multiplex’s contract covers the remaining full construction of the mall, with vertical construction starting this month.
