A shopping center, 4 office towers, food court, parking … The Marina Shopping Center officially opened its doors on Wednesday 17 April. Casablanca is enriched by a new shopping destination, with no less than 147 banners, 34 restaurants, 1,400 parking spaces, all in the city center.
Convenient by car, bus, taxi, train (the Casa-Port station is not far away) or simply walking, Marina Shopping is strategically located between the port and the Hassan II mosque.
It offers its visitors the choice between several signs of services, DIY, ready-to-wear, catering, recreation areas, SPA … not to mention the Marjane hypermarket. Marina Shopping is aimed at the Casablanca public as well as the neighboring cities and the tourist clientele passing through the economic capital.
By positioning the new mall is accessible to all socio-professional categories (including B and C). The visitor finds there a diversified mix of national and international brands known to Moroccans, to which are added brands that are establishing themselves for the first time in Morocco.
Visitors to Marina Shopping will find a wide variety of brands (including Electroplanet, Kiabi, LC Waikiki, Defacto, Virgin, Collin’s …). It is also the first location in a shopping center in Morocco for Décathlon and Brico Déco. Added to this offer, for the first time in Morocco, international brands such as Flo (shoes), 361° (sports goods) …
Lovers of culinary breaks will not be left behind with a Food Court (McDonald’s, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Conico, Ciocolati Italiani, Barbera …) and terraces with sea views. Marina Shopping required an investment of more than MAD 1,3 billion.
In addition to the shopping center (43.000 m²), the site has 4 office towers (20.000 m²), parking on 2 levels with a total capacity of 1.400 seats. Marina Shopping is the result of a joint venture between two national players in commercial and rental real estate. They are Marjane Holding, a 60% shareholder in Marina Shopping, and Foncière Chellah, a subsidiary of CDG, which holds 40%.
The accessibility of the new shopping center, however, poses a problem. The construction of the Almohades hopper (with its many diversions) makes the traffic chaotic in the neighborhood. Visitors wishing to discover the new center this weekend will have to wait patiently. An effort should be made to smooth traffic in the area and improve signage. Especially since traffic in the city center is not easy.
