Trip To 360 Mall

Part of my duties at work is to visit potential sites around Kuwait in order to drive the business of the company that I work for (enough vagueness for you??), and yesterday I had the opportunity to visit the 360 Mall in Al Zahra Area.

Owned and operated by the Tamdeen Group it's quite a stark addition to Kuwait's skyline and a welcome addition to Kuwait's portfolio of high-end shopping malls and entertainment facilities. Of all the facilities that it will contain, the biggest ones to catch my attention while I was being guided through it were the 20-lane Bowling Alley, a full Marks & Spencer outlet, a 19-screen Cinema complex (with 1 IMAX and 2 VIP theaters thrown in for good measure) and a large Atrium in the center that will include 'only' high-end Cafes like Fauchon (spelling?)

Parking won't be a problem, since the complex will include an attached 3-storey shaded parking lot that directs right into the heart of the mall, also a bank branch (BKME) and 10 strategically-situated ATM machines.
The mall is just off the 6th Ring Road, heading towards Jahra, with excellent visibility and access all around it, plus it's near the upcoming Golf Course, so there's never going to be any more boredom around that area at least!
The Tamdeen Group envision that it will start opening it's doors by March 2009. Personally speaking, this mall's got all the others shaking in their shoes!
