Construction of IMKAN’s Rabat-based flagship project – Le Carrousel – advances with first phase to be delivered in Q3 2022.
Abu Dhabi-based place-maker, IMKAN, does strides in the construction of Le Carrousel; a mixed-use plan located on the Moroccan capital, Rabat’s, beautiful waterfront.
A high-end stop on the coast of the capital city; development of Le Carrousel started early this year with its first stage due for completion in the third quarter of 2022.
The 300-million-dirham production contract for the first stage was given to SOGEA MAROC, the subsidiary of the French Group Vinci, who has been committed to creating the residential areas, seafront stroll including over 40 retail terminals across the waterfront development.
A key player in the Moroccan construction industry, SOGEA MAROC has achieved the earthworks of the Le Carrousel design and has started putting the foundation of the development.
The project’s original residential apartment is also under construction and is on track to be delivered by September 2020.
Along with the development’s first phase on record for conclusion in 2022, the French production company has seen all milestones delivered conveniently so far as per IMKAN’s construction pipeline.
Keeping this steady progress, SOGEA MAROC remains a necessary associate to the seamless delivery of Le Carrousel.
As part of the health and safety measures in place to fight the spread of Covid-19 in Morocco, the Le Carrousel building site has been implemented with all of the required safety and hygienic protocols followed with local government regulations.
Situated off the Atlantic coast covering 10 hectares, the sea-side destination gives a unique 360-degree experience for both its residents and guests with only 50% density and more than 30% of the development’s land reserved for green spaces.
Highlighting elegant residences within an expensive private neighbourhood including a seafront promenade, boutique hotel and the first open-air shopping mall in Morocco, Le Carrousel is estimated to grow to be one of the leading addresses in the country and has become an integral part of the development of the Rabat Corniche.
