Mubarakiya Fire, heart breaking

 On my way back from Rawda I saw smoke billowing out close to Kuwait City. I decided to see where it was coming from, as I got closer and closer my heart broke when I realized Mubarakiya was engulfed in flames. There were 20 plus fire trucks on scene and many more on their way. I rolled the window down and felt the heat from the fire, it was massive. 

I read around 20 stores had been demolished, I know there had to be more. I watched on IG how wooden beams were falling and it was out of control. I don't think the place was equipped with sprinklers, fire extinguishers or hoses but I can't be sure. I did see expats with garden hoses trying to put out the fire. It was a sad thing to see as this is one of the last remaining historical places in Kuwait, everything else has been demolished. You would think they learned from the last fire that raged in Mubarakiya that proper fire precautions are needed for this important place.

The Warehouse Mall - IKEA coming soon to Ahmadi area!

 Those of you who were sad when they knocked down Ahmadi Drive in Cinema should be happy to hear Kuwait National Cinema Companies have taken over the plot of land and are now building The Warehouse Mall in Ahmadi district, Sabahiya area. From the looks of it there will be an IKEA in the area!! 

Concept picture

Mubasher: Kuwait National Cinema concluded a contracting deal of KWD 39.8 million with First United Co. for the construction of the first phase of a commercial, entertainment, and cultural complex in Kuwait.

The new complex, situated at South Sabahiya, will be spread across a total area of 79,640 square metres, according to a statement to the Kuwaiti bourse on Monday.

Kuwait National Cinema also referred that it will provide further details in this regard during the project execution phases.

As for the material impact, the transaction will contribute to higher fixed assets (projects under implementation) as well as an increase in the company's liabilities during the project implementation period.

From the looks of the picture IKEA will be full size, not like the tiny one in 360 Mall. I've always said there needs to be an IKEA in that area due to the amount of people living there and having to travel to Avenues to shop which is a hassle. I can't wait to see the final product!
