Totalling an area of 165,000 m2, Morocco Mall will be the largest mall in North Africa. Utilisation of the CCL XF slab system has led to rapid execution, with 24,000 m2 of slabs cast in October 2009 alone. The project is expected to be completed in March 2010 and shows CCL’s ability to handle large fast-track projects in North Africa.
Located on a 10-hectare site outside of the country’s most famous city, the new Morocco Mall will be accessible from five entry points along a major thoroughfare in suburban Casablanca. With panoramic views from five sets of lifts, twelve escalators and four travelators, the building will be a vaulted sky dome of shops, piazzas and open spaces. The mall’s biggest attraction is an IMAX movie theatre and 3-D spa. It will also attract tourists from far and wide thanks to an aqua park, kids’ parks, an organic garden, a skating rink and an art space dedicated to Moroccan handicrafts.
