Brookfield Multiplex chosen for $1bn Abu Dhabi Al Maryah mall deal

Brookfield Multiplex has been selected as main contractor to deliver the $1bn (£650m) Al Maryah mall in Abu Dhabi.

Gulf Related awarded the $425m (£275m) construction contract to Brookfield Multiplex, with main construction work due to get underway later this month.

When completed in March 2018, the 2.3m sq ft mall will include 145 restaurants and cafes, a 20-screen cinema, medical centre, crèche, health club, public library, food market and three rooftop car parks.

There will also be 400 retail outlets, including the the first branch of Macy’s located anywhere outside of the US.

Brookfield Multiplex’s Middle East managing director Marcus Truscott 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 will transform the retail landscape in Abu Dhabi and positively shift people’s perceptions of urban life in the region.”

Kevin Ryan, managing director of real estate development at Gulf Related, added: “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.”
