Mall of the Emirates expansion unveiled
The expansion of Mall of the Emirates has revealed an entirely new floor as part of Majid Al Futtaim’s Dhs1 billion investment.
The scheme has added 36,000sqm of retail, dining and entertainment at the mall in Dubai.
Two new domes, three glass barrel roof lights, nine new bridges and three escalators have been added to connect to the existing mall.
The new area – the size of which is the equivalent of eight football pitches – offers space for a total of 40 retail outlets, including more than 20 fashion retailers, some of which are entering the region for the first time, and 12 dining outlets.
The new VOX Cinemas has 24 revamped screens and UAE’s first IMAX with Laser screen. It also has a luxury cinema experience called THEATRE by Rhodes, combining fine food and film in a collaboration with Michelin Star Chef Gary Rhodes.
New restaurant venues near the VOX Cinemas include Dean & Deluca, 800 Degrees, Eat Greek Kouzina and Din Tai Fung.
The Evolution 2015 scheme has also added 1,300 shaded parking spaces with a dedicated entrance. A new taxi arrival facility has also been created next to Ski Dubai.
