Kuwait’s leading property developer Tamdeen Group has broken ground on its KD250-million ($824 million) Al Khiran Project, The New Pulse of Kuwait, located in the heart of Sabah Al Ahmad Sea City.

Set to span 116,000 sq m upon completion, The New Pulse of Kuwait will strengthen the country’s position as a regional shopping, entertainment and tourism destination, says Tamdeen.

To be completed in two phases, Al Khiran Project will be the largest waterfront recreational tourism destination built by the private sector in Kuwait featuring a shopping mall, entertainment facilities, parks and a five-star hotel.

Phase One of the project scheduled to be open to public in the first quarter of 2021. It incorporates a commercial and retail district, including Kuwait’s first outlet shopping centre, which will further diversify its retail sector. It will also see the construction of other leisure facilities such as Al Khiran Park and also the country’s largest marina, with a capacity to accommodate more than 900 boats.

A 1.25-km boardwalk and the project’s captivating design, reminiscent of the beaches of the French Riviera, will enhance the appeal of the all-inclusive destination, which will have approximately 3,500 parking spaces when Phase One is complete, says the Kuwaiti developer.

Work on Phase One is under way with the construction of the mall, which includes more than 80,000 sq m of retail space and 250 commercial units, going as per schedule.

In addition to the real estate investments, the project will involve a myriad of green spaces and decorative landscaping designed by some of the best landscape architects in the world.

Upon completion, the mall will be one of the most contemporary destinations for shopping and leisure in Kuwait, particularly the southern area including the Mubarak Al Kabeer and Ahmadi governorates, which have a population of 1.55 million.

The project will directly serve at least 450,000 residents within the vicinity of the Sabah Al Ahmad Sea City, Sabah Al Ahmad Residential, Al Wafra Residential, Al Khiran and the neighbouring areas of Saudi Arabia, says Tamdeen.

Phase Two will incorporate the construction of a five-star hotel and opportunities for mall expansion. The project aims to draw regional and international tourists.
