Winner of the 5* Architecture Award Morocco in the Arabian Commercial Property Awards, the Morocco Mall in Casablanca is a shopping center that employing latest technologies and sustainable design techniques is set to introduce new green structures in the shopping center industry. Spreading in a 200,000 sq m area, the shopping mall accommodates over 250 shops and restaurants, a one million liter aquarium and a 400-seat IMAX cinema. Designed as an extension of the main Casablanca waterfront promenade, the shell-shaped shopping center also houses the first Galeriés Lafayette store in Africa, which looks like a gem in the shopping center. And the exterior is adorned with a number of skylights, open gardens, trees and water areas. The shopping mall is due to open in late 2010.
