The new Mingala Market project in Yangon will be completed in June 2022, according to the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC).
The market is constructed by San Myat Tun Company and it has now completed 40.5 per cent of construction. The foundation process of the building is also completed and officials will continue the other operations.
The Mingala Market with over 4,000 stalls was caught fire twice on 24 May 2010 and 9 January 2016. The Sun Myat Tun company was chosen to work with the YCDC to build the new market.
The new Mingala Market construction project started at the end of 2018, and the operation was suspended during the outbreak of COVID-19 and cannot be completed on schedule.
The deadline was March this year and the company offered an extension for a further three months. The project is being resumed with about 200 construction workers to complete in June.
There will be a two-storey basement car park and the shop owners of the old market will be relocated from the first to the fourth floor and the other eight-storey (except for residential flat) will contain a car park, shops, showrooms including international standard fire extinguishing system. — Ko Naing (Bago)/GNLM
