A new link connecting Ibn Battuta Mall with the Dubai Metro was officially opened today by Nakheel Chairman Ali Rashid Lootah, marking the completion of an Dh135 million expansion at the world’s largest themed shopping mall.
The Mall-Metro link is the second element of Nakheel’s Ibn Battuta phase one expansion, which also includes a 300,000 sq ft extension to the mall that officially opened earlier this year.
A second, 4.7 million sq ft expansion, is under way.
The two-storey, 210 metre walkway means Dubai Metro and bus users can now directly access the mall and its 400 shops, restaurants and attractions.
The link itself features 90 new retail and dining outlets including a food court – the second at Ibn Battuta Mall – with around 20 restaurants.
Ali Rashid Lootah, Nakheel Chairman, said: Today marks yet another major milestone for Nakheel and its rapidly-growing retail development portfolio. More info
