Modon awarded Lulu Group International the operating license as part of its ongoing cooperation with leading retail brands, designed to meet the needs of residents in North Riyadh City.

Modon has also awarded the tender for its Retail Strip Mall project, as a part of the company's plan to build a modern community in North Riyadh City that adheres to the highest sustainability standards.

Modon is working tirelessly to develop infrastructure and public facilities in Riyadh City, with the aim of building a modern, integrated community that is in line with the vision of our nation’s wise leadership.”

The supermarket was built at lot 25 in North Riyadh City, and covers 350 square meters.

The retail strip mall will cover 8687 square meters in North Riyadh City, located at lot 23. Upon its completion in August 2020, the project will include seven restaurants, 14 stores, and a supermarket that meets the needs of the city’s residents.

Upon completion, Riyadh City will be among the largest and most iconic residential communities in Abu Dhabi, housing over 200,000 residents.
