Thilafushi Phase 2 Commercial Land Tender Opens

The tender process for acquiring commercial land in Thilafushi Phase 2 has officially opened, with the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) offering ownership opportunities for Maldivian buyers. Interested parties can now register and submit applications through the online bid portal.

Thilafushi serves as the commercial and industrial hub of the greater Malé area, currently hosting activities such as cement packing, gas bottling, and boat building. The upcoming relocation of the international port to Thilafushi is expected to streamline clearing and warehousing processes, simplifying the supply of goods to the city and surrounding areas. Additionally, the Thila-Malé Bridge, currently under construction, will enhance the transportation of commercial goods and reduce delivery times.

Thilafushi is undergoing modernization with a focus on providing environmentally conscious opportunities for businesses. This latest land tender aligns with the previous government’s master plan to develop Thilafushi as a major industrial centre and follows earlier efforts to address land shortages.

Earlier this year, the HDC announced plans to dredge 150 hectares of land in Thilafushi specifically for industrial purposes. In that announcement, the HDC emphasized that 90 per cent of the allocated land would be reserved for Maldivian businesses.
