Challenge

Being the first of its kind, DGM is an icon for the city. Catering to the expanding city, the clients vision was to create a world class modern retail centre with public realm at the heart of the offering.The challenge was to execute the clients aspirations with a challenging site within economical budgets. Douala Grand Mall is a part of a wider masterplan providing new retail experiences, Public realms and commercial spaces.

Solution

Douala Grand Mall is a part of a wider masterplan providing opportunities to the locals. The involvement of the locals by teaching new trade and techniques created great local participation. The central plaza at the heart of the development links the retail centre in phase 1 and the commercial spaces in Phase 2. The retail centre caters to a variety of local population and more importantly provides the public spaces that the city longs for.

Result

The project is under construction and due for completion in early Summer 2020.
