The designs for a new mall at the $4bn Dubai Sports City development in Dubai have been finalised.
Dubai Sports City finance head Vijay Sajjanhar said the work on the Arena Mall had been carried out by a US-based firm working in conjunction with a local entity.
The mall is on the future agenda of Dubai Sports City.
“The mall is around the same size as the Mall of the Emirates [in Dubai], around 1.4mn ft² of leasable space,” said Sajjanhur. “The mall has been configured in a way so people come to the events via the building.”
Approximately 1.4mn ft² of gross leasable area, the mall will be anchored by a 140,000 ft² hypermarket, an interactive and educational family entertainment centre, cinemaplex, two food courts and an array of over 300 fashion, convenience, family and leisure destination stores and over 7,000 covered car parks.
