Dubai Festival City heads for the water’s edge

The Dubai Festival City (DFC) mall is making its inexorable push towards the waterline. By year-end, the ongoing AED1.5 billion expansion will have created a 300-metre-long promenade right at the water’s edge, which will house a raft of fine-dining and family-centred F&B options. The expansion is merging the mall’s two separate enclosures into one and then taking the whole further out to the Creek-side. A massive 50,000 square feet area is being reclaimed to situate the promenade. Two new department store operators — with locations at either end of the mall — have also been finalised, though the identities have not been revealed. The first is to open its doors next year and the second in 2017. The two anchors will add a combined heft of 300,000 square feet to the gross leasable area.
