Following the recent appointment of AMS Africa to oversee merchandising and leasing management, IMKAN Maroc has announced the first anchor retailers for the Mall du Carrousel project.

Mall du Carrousel is the very first oceanfront project in Rabat, Morocco. Extending over 100,000sq m on the maritime façade of Rabat, Mall du Carrousel is an innovative mixed-use project, a clever combination of residencies, shops, hotels and entertainment, incorporating a hotel and private accommodation. More than 30,000sq m is dedicated to shops, cafes and entertainment areas.

Amongst the first to sign lease agreements for the ambitious project are Carrefour Market – a part of the LabelVie Group – and the first network of premium cinema complexes in Morocco, CINETALAS Holding.

The Carrefour Market will occupy a retail space of more than 2,000sq m and will provide customers with a rich variety of consumer products as well as an F&B area. CINETALAS will develop an innovative seven-screen multiplex which will span over 2,500sq m and will feature a jazz café bar alongside a gourmet restaurant with a terrace overlooking the Atlantic.

Ahmad Aref, Managing Director of IMKAN Maroc, said: “We are pleased to partner with AMS AFRICA, which has a world-renowned reputation in its field. We are looking forward to welcoming the imminent arrival of prestigious brands such as Carrefour Market and CINEATLAS, which reflect the relevance of Mall du Carrousel’s commercial strategy.”
