Emaar Properties and Dubai Holdings- two major development entities in the region have joined hands together to come up with the biggest Mall in the Emirate beating the existing magnificent Dubai Mall.
If there is one thing that UAE has niched in the past decade or two across the globe, it most certainly is the existence and abundance of shopping malls in the city space. UAE has emerged as the trendsetter in the Gulf and the Middle-Eastern belt of the world in terms of commercial and retail landscape and has, then, influenced numerous metropolitans to adapt to the same.
Currently, Dubai Mall is the one famous destination in the region offering the best of recreational, commercial, and leisure experiences the city has in store. Dubai Mall has popularly been a hot favorite tourist destination of Dubai due to its proximity to Burj Khalifa and its world-renowned fountain show.
However, according to recent reports, the two development giants of the country have decided to join hands and develop a never-seen-before spectacular shopping mall that would be way bigger than the Dubai Mall and surpass its grandeur. This majestic development is expected to be 6 square kilometer in area with over 750,000 square of gross retail space which is equivalent to the size of 100 football grounds, thus, easily doubling the size of the existing Dubai Mall.
Spread across a wide area, the whole Mall is set and designed comprising of three functional levels which each level curated uniquely to offer a distinct experience to the visitor. The ground floor of the mall is designed to accommodate extravagant events like celebrity shows, theatre shows as well as huge-numbered concerts. The 1st floor is your quintessential one-stop retail concourse with a four-lane boulevard lined with globally renowned luxury, retail, leisure and dining outlets. Coming to the 2nd floor, it will be a dream for all those seeking the much talked about adventure of the region with some high-tech experiential attractions like the ‘Ice Adventure’, a cineplex, a waterpark, a dedicated sports area and a huge grocery store joined to the nearest metro link.
The name of this new splendor would be ‘Dubai Square’ situated in the apex of the upcoming beautiful Dubai Creek Harbor Development. This avant-garde will be at a mere 10 minute distance from the Dubai International Airport and UAE’s wondrous skyscraper Burj Khalifa. Engulfing the new-age technology driven approach, the Mall in literal meanings would be a living and breathing epitome of all things technology driven and infused. Be it the ultimate convenience aimed to be provided to the customer through techno-driven services like shopping via desktop/mobile, custom-designed mobile apps, quick check-out solutions, search and barcode scanning applications, radio frequency identification technology, mobile payments or click-and-collect services.
Thus, we are all ears and eyes to the much-awaited opening of this new splendor!
