“Ewan Retail, our newest undertaking near the sought-after Ewan Residences, promises to address the needs of residents seeking a modern lifestyle that is within reach. We are truly excited about this project, and we are confident that it will reflect our commitment to serve the community in the most convenient way possible,” he remarked.
Lootah mirrors its commitment to address these daily needs of its residents through Ewan Retail—which aims to offer convenience through its several retail shops, a gym, and a hardware, he noted.
Its casual dining options, meawhile, will include Arabic, Asian, and other world-renowned cuisines—assuring that it will cater to every palate. It will also be accessible to all the residents of DIP, he added.
