Dubai’s New Natural Shopping Mall: Cityland
Dubai has no shortage of shopping malls, with the current title of World’s Largest Shopping Mall already being held by The Dubai Mall and Deira Mall set to become the next world record holder for largest shopping mall in the world when construction completes around 2021, but there’s a brand new shopping mall with a difference coming to Dubai. Dubai’s natural shopping mall will be the very first nature-inspired shopping mall in the world.
Don’t forget to look at some of these amazing hotels in Dubai for shopping.
Natural Shopping Mall
This brand new 1.2 billion AED (£230 million) development has been created by Cityland Group, the same people who were responsible for Dubai Miracle Garden and the amazing Dubai Butterfly Garden and, believe it or not, is set to be opened later this year. That’s right, 2018 will be the year of nature with Cityland Mall, an incredible innovative move by Dubai.
Cityland Group have on the record saying that more than 60% of the project has been completed as of February 2018 and this certainly bodes well for the expected completion date of 2018.
At the moment, the developers have confirmed that more than 50% of the retail space has already been leased to retailers including a Carrefour Hypermarket. Cityland Mall will follow suit with the other malls in Dubai with the inclusion of a VOX Cinema and Fabyland set to be completed within 6 to 8 weeks.
The focal point of Cityland Mall will be the open air garden located right in the centre of the mall, which will be named Central Park. This huge 200,000 square foot (18,580 square metres) wide garden will be a relaxing oasis for people to spend some time before and after going through some retail therapy.
