Macao’s newest shopping mall, M8, will be launching soon, according to local media outlet, Allin Fun, which cited official sources. 

Located in the historic district’s Rua da Sé, the nine floor building has a total area of 80,000 square feet, three of which have already been reserved for the luxury retailer DFS Group. In total, the complex will consist of six shopping floors and three basement floors, two of which will be reserved for dining. 

The project has been developed jointly by the Macao Post and Telecommunications Bureau (also known by its Portuguese acronym CTT) and China State Construction, in a building that was formerly used as a dormitory for CTT staff. 

According to official sources, “M8 is a cultural retail destination that draws inspiration from Macao’s rich heritage. The project respects the city’s historic context, linking Senado Square with the surrounding ancient streets.”

The name of the mall reflects this approach, with the M referring to the city itself and the 8 denoting the eight surrounding cultural heritage sites in the area. 

Although no concrete date has been set for the mall’s opening, a previous report stated that it could be unveiled as soon as the third quarter of this year. 

M8 has already garnered various awards, including the Best Retail Development award at the International Property Awards 2024 to 2025 and the Best Landmark Development (Hong Kong and Macao) at the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards. The property was also recognised by the Guiness World Record last year after its 20.45-metre curved stone-laminated glass was deemed by the organisation to be the world’s largest. 

Earlier this year, Macao ushered in its latest shopping mall, Treasure Island Resort Shopping Centre, after a series of delays.
