According to the officials, the government is constructing a new Mingalar Market in Mingala Taungnyunt Township spending K68 billion, and about 63 per cent of the market has been completed. The market will be a 17-storey building with a two-storey basement car park and is being constructed by modern machinery, expert engineers and skilled labourers following the COVID-19 health rules of the Ministry of Health and Sports.
There will be banks, restaurants and supermarkets on the ground floor. From 6th to 13th floor including two-storey basement car park can accommodate more than 700 cars. There will also be shops and warehouses on the 9th and 10th floors while the offices will be on 11st and 13th floors.
There will be more than 1,000 shops from the 5th to 8th floors managed by the construction companies. The YCDC will relocate the vendors from the ground floor to the 4th floor who lost their shops in old Mingalar Market, which caught fire. The officials now speed up the building construction. If the new Mingalar Market is completed, it can benefit more than 40,000 people, including vendors, staff, and customers, so the market will become alive more than before.
