Dubai’s recently unveiled $20bn master development Jumeirah Central will take the place of the ambitious Mall of the World project on Sheikh Zayed Road and feature a number of region and world firsts, Dubai Holding has revealed.
Late last week it was announced that the mega mall project, originally launched in 2014, would be moved to a site on Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Road from its original location opposite Mall of the Emirates.
Shortly afterwards the Jumeirah Central project was announced, an urban mixed-use city district comprising 47 million square feet of gross floor area.
In a release confirming more details of the project today, Dubai Holding said site clearing and preparation was already underway. Renders sent to media showed it occupying the site of the Dubai Police Academy, opposite Mall of the Emirates on Sheikh Zayed Road, originally allocated to the other mega development. More info
