Tamdeen Group announces US$700m leisure development in Kuwait

by Katie Buckley | 13 Mar 2015

Kuwait’s leading mixed use property developer, Tamdeen Group, has announced US$700m (€661m, £472m) plans for the Al Khiran project, located in Sabah Al Ahmed Sea City, Kuwait.

Al Khiran will be an an eco-friendly, recreational, residential and retail waterfront development. The resort-like project will spread along 350,000sq m (3,800,000sq ft) and it’s hoped it will become a key tourism driver for Kuwait.

Although situated on the waterfront, the heart of the development will be a premium outlet mall, offering 75,000sq m (807,300sq ft) of retail space, F&B and entertainment outlets. Designed by international architecture firm RTKL, the mall will have an outdoor feel to it, with indoor streets covered by continuous skylights.

The new mall will have a unique resort-style architecture and incorporate traditional Arabic motifs into the design.

RTKL has worked with the Tamdeen Group before on the 360 Mall in Kuwait City.

The Al Khiran Park, a further element of the project, will provide open-air areas for family attractions, performance spaces, cinemas and entertainment venues, as well as a range of dining options, private beaches, swimming pools and playgrounds.

The waterfront will become home to a 900 boat marina. There will be covered walkways, an elongated promenade, and outdoor public space.

A five-star hotel will also be constructed on the site. No operators have been named so far; however, there will be a spa of international standards.

The entire site is being landscaped by US-based PWP Landscape Architects, who have masterplanned a number of large leisure projects, such as the Barangaroo development, Sydney and the 9/11 Museum, New York.
