Bou Khalil turns Tripoli
shopping center into a mall
15,000 square meter
leasing space for 50 stores
Tripoli Square, a mall by supermarket chain Bou Khalil, is scheduled to open in October, in the Tripoli area of Bahsas.
Investment is close to ten million dollars.
The building was previously a commercial center under the name Faubourg de Tripoli and has been under renovation for the new concept.
Lama Bechara, Mall Manager, said: “Bou Khalil supermarket has been in the building for more than ten years, and Chairman Wajdi Bou Khalil has decided to create a mall around it.”
The mall, which is a first for the chain, has a Gross Leasable Area (GLA) of 15,000 square meters (m2). It is composed of five floors and two underground levels.
Bechara said leases range between $300 and $800 per m2.
A food court and a kids’ entertainment center will occupy 2,000 m2 but will not open before the end of the year.
The mall will include around 50 retail outlets.
The Turkish brand LC Waikiki will be the mall’s anchor store. Other mall tenants will include Moukarzel Jewelry, Rovina, Librairie Antoine, Samsonite, Tape à L’oeil, Khabbaz, and Jennyfer.
Bou Khalil will retain its 4,000 m2 space in the mall.
