The development, spanning more than 11 million square metres, is due to open in late 2019, and will serve up more than 2 million square foot of leasable space. More than 750 outlets will be housed in the mall, as well as four major family entertainment and leisure centres including a cinema complex, a 65,000 square foot hypermarket, seven department stores, and residential communities housing villas, townhouses and apartments.
Dubai Hills Mall will also be added to the public transport network with a dedicated link to the Dubai Metro being established. The mall development area will also welcome the arrival of a new outdoor concert area. And with the aforementioned transport links, the area could prove to be a huge success for major music events.
The mall is planned to be the centrepiece of the Dubai Hills Estate, a joint venture project with Meraas. As well as the mall itself, the estate will include a championship golf course, with views of the Downtown Dubai skyline in sight. The golf course will be surrounded by 4,400 villas and townhouses, as well as 22,000 apartments, while a central park area will also be spread over roughly 2 million square feet, and an expanse of greenery and lakes is a welcome addition.
