I’m not sure if this is replacing Souk Al Mubarkiya but I certainly hope not. It looks like Back Combined, the construction contractor got a deal to build the new Kuwait Souk, I don’t know where it will be in the city exactly but here’s their announcement below.
“Souk Alkuwait!! One of the old popular markets and historical icons of Kuwait located in Kuwait city .
Recently, that iconic project was noticed by the Kuwaiti government to see a change and thus, @backcombined was granted the assignment to be the company who renovate, and set the final touches of that old structure and finishing elements of that iconic image to give it a whole new vivid look while maintaining the same spiritual and cultural shopping experience for it’s visitors !
Project : Souk Alkuwait
location : Kuwait City
Status : Ongoing ”
Update: It’s to renovate the current Souk, not rebuild
