Construction work on the Damodar City complex in Labasa will start in a month’s time.
Damodar Group of Companies Chief Executive Div Damodar says construction work is expected to finish in two years time.
Damodar says there was a slight delay as they had to re design the concept to better suit the Vanua Levu market.
The estimated cost of the project is about $10 million.
Damodar City Labasa will have two or three cinemas, two supermarkets, two large department stores, a food court, at least 20 retail shops, offices, a museum, a warehouse, a family fun center, car and machinery show room and a car park for 500 vehicles.
Damodar says they may also have a hotel in the building.
The project will create jobs for 70 to 100 people during construction and over 250 people will be employed once the center opens for trading.
