AED1 billion Mall of the Emirates extension opens
28 September, 2015
Luxury is what comes to mind when a person walks through Mall of the Emirates’ new extension, which includes several brands new to the region and the Middle East’s first and only IMAX with a laser screen. Mall owner, the Majid Al Futtaim group, unveiled the AED1 billion Evolution 2015 on Monday after 18 months and 15 million man hours going into building two domes, three glass barrel roof lights, nine bridges and three escalators to connect the extension to the existing mall. The new area, which is the size of eight football fields, has space for 40 retail outlets. Brands entering the Middle East’s retail landscape include AllSaints, Lululemon Athletica and, later this year, Abercrombie & Fitch.
