Dubai Mall
Emaar's flagship shopping mall, will open doors to public tomorrow, the 4th November at 2pm. The mall marks the largest ever opening of any shopping mall in the world, considering the retail offer.

The unveiling of the Dubai Mall will be marked by a series of high profile activities featured throughout the mall. The Guinness World record winner for the World's Largest Acrylic Panel, Dubai Aquarium and Discovery Center, will be unveiled at 4pm. Other attractions include exhibits, galleries, fashion shows and performers.

The Dubai Mall enjoys direct road access from Sheikh Zayed Road, Emaar Boulevard, Financial Street Road, new bridge off Interchange One and the Down Town Burj Dubai.

With about 600 retail outlets, several popular books such as Hamleys, Waitrose, and Kinokuniya are awaiting their debut in the Middle East at the mall. Apart from the Dubai Aquarium and Discovery Center, the mall also includes the Olympic-sized Dubai Ice Rink, the Fashion Catwalk atrium, and the world's largest indoor Gold Souk.

The Dubai Mall also has two department stores Galeries Lafayette and Bloomingdale, both making their regional debut. About 14,000 undercover car park spaces across three car parks and adjoining luxury five-star hotel, The Address, which includes 250 rooms and 450 serviced residences will also form a part of The Dubai Mall.

With its world-class integrated approach towards leisure and retail, the Dubai Mall is hoped to redefine the shopping experience of people and visitors of Dubai.

With more than 1200 retail outlets, and 160 food and beverage outlets, the mall is an integral component of Downtown Burj Dubai. The 500-acre mixed-use development is anchored by the iconic Burj Dubai, the world's tallest building.

The regular working hours of the mall would be from 10am to midnight daily.

Emaar Malls Group, the developer of this iconic project, is the retail and shopping mall subsidiary of Emaar Properties PJSC, the leading Dubai-based property developer, which has diversified into shopping malls. This forms a part of Emaar's vision 2010 to grow into one of the most valuable companies in the world.
