Al Rashid Mall With mounting development needs, the idea of building a shopping center with integrated services commensurate with the ever-growing needs of citizens and traders came about. Hence, partners in Al Rashid Trading & Contracting Co. Ltd., lead by the late Shaikh Rashid bin Abdul Rahman Al-Rashid decided to build a shopping center upto the international standards. Architect Rashid bin Saad Al-Rashid was entrusted with the task of designing this huge national project.
Al Rashid Mall design adopts an architectural concept that combines Arab-Islamic architectural heritage with the latest international techniques in construction and processing, to reflect the architectural renaissance witnessed by the kingdom. The design of the mall was based on extensive field research on the most important and largest shopping malls in the world, particularly in both the USA and Europe, to benefit from their strength points and avoid disadvantages.
