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