JAT Construction Group will on Wednesday, September 19, officially open the JAT Centre in Maputo’s ‘Baixa’ central business district (CBD), in what looks set to be one of the most important inaugurations in the Mozambican capital this year.
The JAT Centre is a modern and multifunction, large-scale real estate complex comprising offices, a hotel, apartments, a shopping centre, a health and spa area and ample parking space.
The official opening of the JAT Centre represents for the JAT Group the construction in Maputo of about 300,000 square metres of offices, parking lots and other facilities, and the culmination of nearly 20 years of activity.
The construction of the JAT Centre, hailed as “Maputo’s new CBD” represents an investment of about US$130 million and offers those who work in or visit the area a meeting place characterised by innovation, modernity, convenience, excellence and tranquillity.
The project, which began construction in 2013, features the most modern materials and technologies and provides green spaces to convey a sense of tranquillity to those who visit, work or reside in the CBD.
City Mall – Shopping Centre
With a total area of 11,000 square metres, City Mall offers 56 retail spaces, which will be occupied by banks, a supermarket, health clinics, restaurants and others. Occupancy of more than 80% is already arranged.
The Hotel Melia is another competitive differential for Maputo’s new CBD. An internationally recognised hotel brand, the Melia Maputo will feature 172 deluxe rooms, decorated in a modern and sophisticated design, while its Sky Bar, at the top of the building, offers panoramic views of Maputo Bay. The hotel also has two restaurants and three modern and versatile conference rooms.
LuxCorpus – Health Club and Spa
LuxCorpus is the most modern and sophisticated health and beauty club in the country, and one of the best in Africa. Set in an area of 4,500 square metres, LuxCorpus is equipped with the latest and most sophisticated gym equipment for all types of training. Fitness lovers will find the latest cardio equipment, a modern spinning room and two swimming pools. Concern about members’ health is a priority, and the Lux Club offers its clients physical evaluations and nutrition consultations to adapt training regimes to individual needs and objectives.
The spa offers various face and skin treatments and an indoor hydrotherapy pool with a therapeutic circuit, sauna and Turkish bath, as well as various massage modalities.
The JAT Residence – Apartments
JAT Residence consists of 84 apartments, with six apartments in a choice of four configurations per floor. The building has spacious corridors and male and female bathrooms for employees on each floor. The building is directly connected to the Melia Hotel, which can provide room service to the apartments.
The total 35,000 square metres of office space is divided among three buildings, each with parking space. The office buildings conform to international standards in terms of safety, energy and water saving systems and sustainability.Source: Press Release / Playground Moçambique
