Kuwait’s 360 Mall to add tennis centre & concert venue in major expansion

The massive expansion plans for Kuwait’s 360 Mall retail complex will include a luxury hotel, new shops and a 7,600-seat tennis arena.

The Sheikh Jaber Al Abdullah Al Jaber Al Sabah International Tennis Complex will put Kuwait firmly on the world’s professional tennis map.

Tamdeen Shopping Centres Company said the expansion project will feature several ‘new to the market’ retail brands and a five-star hotel, in addition to outstanding restaurants, a ballroom, and a health club.

Developer, the Tamdeen Group, has partnered with the Hyatt Hotels Corporation on the 390,000sqft (120,000sqm) expansion, which also includes the building of the 261-room Hyatt Hotel.

Expected to open in 2020, the stadium will be open to Hyatt guests and used by the Kuwait Tennis Federation.

The extension is expected to increase the footfall by at least 30 percent to over 18 million visitors, a statement said.

The tennis complex will have a combined stadium seating for over 7,600 people across two main arenas, each with the capacity to hold 4,000 and 1,600 people respectively, eight indoor courts with over 500 seats and eight outdoor courts with 1,500 seats.

When not being used for tennis, it will double up as an entertainment venue.
