Taj is an Arabic word. It was brought to India via Persian, the language of the Mughal court.

Taj is an Arabic word meaning crown.

Abdoun is located in Amman but is an upscale residential/ commercial area to the south of the centre of town.

What is so special about Spinney's? I think there used to be a Spinney's in Mafraq more than 50 years ago for people who worked on the pipeline

Housing Bank leads JD40m syndicate loan to Al Tajamouat for Touristic Projects Plc

AMMAN - Four banks signed on Monday a JD40 million long term debt facility.

Led by the Housing Bank, the JD40 million syndicate finance package is granted to Al Tajamouat for Touristic Projects plc.

The syndicate which was led by the Housing bank for Trade and Finance with participations from Union Bank, HSBC and Egyptian Arab Land Bank, will be directed towards Al Tajamouat's upcoming retail and leisure development in Abdoun- Taj Mall.

The agreements were signed by chief personnel representing the banks, and Halim Salfiti, the chairman of the board of Al Tajamouat for Touristic Projects plc.

The Chairman of the Housing Bank Micheal Marto said in a time when the real estate sector is still suffering a slowdown, Taj Mall stood out to be among the most unique touristic projects with a strong shareholder base, artistic architectural design, and healthy cash flows.

He added that the Housing Bank has successfully structured and raised the funding, thanks to the invaluable support of the participant banks.

" We are confident that this facility will effectively complement the already established foundations of Taj Mall, and look forward to continuing our support to large-scale projects in Jordan." he added.

Salfiti for his part thanked all of the banks and the people involved in concluding the finance package and relayed his deep gratitude for their confidence in Al Tajamouat for Touristic Projects.

"We are grateful to have gained the trust and support of renowned banks in Jordan.

This will be a sufficient resource for Taj's internal capabilities, encouraging its completion according to schedule, he said.

Al Tajamouat for Touristic Projects plc is listed on the Amman Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "MERM".

The company’s major shareholders are Unicorn Investment Bank and Specialized Investment Compounds plc, a company listed on the Amman Stock Exchange under the symbol "SPIC".

The company is currently developing Taj Mall.

Taj Mall is envisioned to primarily be an upscale retail and lifestyle development consisting of a multi purpose facility catering for a wide spectrum of tenants with the main objective of entertaining and serving clients through a pioneering approach and diversified services including cinemas, advanced arcade centers, retail outlets, food courts, kids’ zones, restaurants, and cafes in addition to retail stores and a large supermarket.

Yes construction has started at least a year ago if not more and the mall seems to be well on its way to opening I think. I passed by it the other day and the structure was half painted with yellow paint so it seems work is going ahead.
