Abu Dhabi is about to get a brand new mall.
Well, sort of.
The Galleria on Al Maryah Island is getting a huge entension, which will open on September 4, 2019.
A whopping 270 new shops will find a home in the mall, as well as more than 70 new places to eat.
Entertainment will include a flagship Xtreme Zone, and there will be urban rooftop parks to explore on the, erm, roof.
It will transorm the existing mall into a whole new kind of destination, says Gulf Related and Mubadala Real Estate and Infrastructure (MREI), the real estate arm of Mubadala Investment Company.
Daniel Parry, managing director, Gulf Related, said: “The anticipation is building as the mall nears completion and we prepare to open our doors in September. Our vision has always been to curate a mix of best-in-class venues, fashion, food, home and entertainment. As an Abu Dhabi based developer, we are excited to share our vision with our city and welcome everyone to their new mall.”
Ali Eid Al-Mheiri, executive director of the Real Estate and Infrastructure, Mubadala, added: “Before we opened The Galleria, we started working on its expansion with Gulf Related to create something unique for Abu Dhabi. Our vision was to create new experiences for everyone, every day.”
And there you have it.
Star clearing some wardrobe space now.
