Mall of the Emirates to open during the last week of September
Less than two years after MAF Investments started the construction of its most ambitious retail and leisure project to date, the eagerly awaited Mall of the Emirates will open its doors next month as expected.
MAF management is targeting over 300 retail openings for launch day which would be a record for any mall in the world. The range and variety of stores at the mall is outstanding with the largest collection of international and local brands in the middle-east all housed under one roof.
Mall of the Emirates’ eagerly anticipated range of family entertainment is also on schedule to open with the mall. A 14 screen Cinestar complex and a new two-level Magic Planet family entertainment centre including indoor rollercoasters and simulators will open in September. The highly anticipated Ski Dubai snow park will open shortly afterwards. Next year the offering will be extended again with the opening of a Kempinski 5-star resort hotel and the Dubai Community Theatre and Arts Centre, as planned.
“We are achieving a goal that is unprecedented in this market,” commented Francois de Montaudouin, CEO, MAF Holding. “We are proud of the work of the project team. This is a landmark project involving unique and highly technical engineering challenges and the team is delivering a mall that will be a key attraction in the retail and entertainment landscape of the Region.”
