Ibn Battuta Mall, the world’s largest themed shopping mall is now getting even bigger and more exciting. It will soon add 600 more retail, dining and entertainment outletsin its new, 4.7 million sq. ft. extension, announced in April 2015.
The extension will bring a new, one million sq. ft. mall, multi-screen cinema complex, multi-storey car park and a second hotel with 370 rooms to the existing development.
At its centre will be a 300,000 sq. ft. courtyard with a retractable glass roof that will be opened in Dubai’s cool winter months for open-air shopping. The size of four football fields, the courtyard area alone will host around 80 new shops and restaurants.
The extension will bring a new shopping experience to Ibn Battuta Mall, enhancing the existing offering to reflect increasing demand. The mall already attracts 52,000 visitors a day and more than 200,000 on its busiest weekends.
This dramatic expansion will transform the area into a huge retail, dining and leisure destination spanning seven million sq. ft. and featuring more than 1,000 shops and attractions in total. This will be a fantastic new facility for nearby residents and the wider Dubai community.
