The proposed Heritage Village looks like a very interesting project. It’s not just another nonsensical mall with another set of useless, boring outlets – this looks like a decent enough concept which promotes both the heritage of Kuwait and perhaps more importantly – the vision of turning Kuwait back into a touristic destination of choice throughout the gulf.
Although specfic details are limited, the proposed location for this project will be Abdullah Al-Ahmad Street.
- 80,000 sqm location
- New Buildings, Restoration of old buildings
- Village should include: Restaurants, Arts Galleries, Art Showrooms, A Heritage Craft Workshops, A Museum, Traditional Souks, archaeological excavation Sites, Restaurants and ofcourse a multitude of coffee shops – after all what would we do without them eh?
Let’s hope they really make this project something special. It will be such a nice and welcome change from the boring bright lights and over-packed noisy malls. It will hopefully also offer a more diverse source of recreational entertainment.
