Amazon KSA expands Ramadan meal support drive with Eta’am

Cenomi Centers, the largest owner, operator and developer of contemporary lifestyle centers in Saudi Arabia, is delighted to host the grand opening of U Walk Jeddah, the city’s first hybrid mall concept that seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor experiences and a watershed moment in the future of retail.

Bringing together trendy eateries and leading brands, U Walk Jeddah is redefining the city’s retail landscape by offering a next-generation shopping experience. The hybrid mall features an indoor retail boulevard, its own leisure district and a nearly 2km-long, open-air promenade with landscaped gardens, shaded terraces and a dancing fountain.

Leading F&B and lifestyle brands such as Nike, Bershka, Starbucks and 19V69 Versace opened their doors ahead of the grand opening, with a host of additional stores still to come – including Victoria’s Secret, Adidas, Zara and Lululemon.  

At 60,000-square-meter  GLA, UWalk Jeddah is already 80 percent pre-let with a number of brands opening over the coming weeks as the center gears up for pre-Ramadan trading.

As the city’s premier lifestyle destination for shopping dining and entertainment, U Walk Jeddah embodies Cenomi Centers’ vision to create the next generation of lifestyle destinations in Saudi Arabia, delivering best-in-class experiences for the local and International visitor. The recent publication of Cenomi Center’s footfall and occupancy results for 2023 reflect the strength of the business’ growth trajectory, with footfall reaching 124 million and occupancy rising to 92.9 percent. 

To celebrate the Grand Opening, U Walk Jeddah is hosting its hotly anticipated Cenomi Urban Festival – which brings childhood nostalgia to life with captivating, Instagram-worthy neon-lit installations, and a variety of immersive games and activities. The Urban Festival runs until the end of February 2024.

The launch follows the soft opening of U Walk Jeddah in December, which was marked by the launch of the Adidas FIFA Fan Zone by Cenomi, a Football Festival to coincide with the FIFA Club World Cup tournament taking place in Jeddah.

Alison Rehill-Erguven, Cenomi Centers CEO said: “We are delighted to host the much-anticipated Grand Opening of U Walk Jeddah – the city’s premier lifestyle destination for shopping, dining and entertainment. U Walk Jeddah is redefining the mall experience with its next-generation design and offering, representing everything Cenomi Centers seeks to achieve in offering the retail experiences of tomorrow. This milestone is further evidence of our bold ambitions for the future.”

U Walk Jeddah can be found conveniently located in the heart of the dynamic Al-Zahar district, with direct access via major roads, and a parking facility to accommodate 1,250 vehicles.
