Nakheel, a Dubai-based master developer, is finally going to start work on the expansion of its flagship Ibn Battuta Mall.
The developer on Sunday issued a tender, seeking contractors to undertake work on construction of new expansion with associated underground services and modification of existing services to connect to the new expansion.
The new expansion will see the mall adding 28,000 square metre total retail area, with leasable space of 17,000 square metres, thus adding 150 new shops to the existing Ibn Battuta complex. Currently, the mall has more than 270 shops, 50 restaurants, a 21-screen cinema and over 4,500 parking spaces.
The expansion will be directly linked to the existing mall and within a few metres of Ibn Battuta Metro station. More info
