Meydan One Mall 'set to be benchmark for quality'

DUBAI, September 6, 2016

The Meydan Group has announced that its new Meydan One Mall in Dubai, UAE, will set a new benchmark in quality for future retail and leisure experiences.

The centre point of the much-anticipated Meydan One mega development, launched in August 2015 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Meydan One Mall will cover more than 30,000 sq m of indoor and outdoor multipurpose space, with 529 retail shops including two major department stores and an 11,200-sq-m hypermarket.

Unveiling the new Meydan One Mall branding, logo and visual identity at Cityscape Global, the Meydan Group has developed an experiential, interactive stand at the region’s premier real estate event, to give visitors, investors and stakeholders an indication of what will be created.

The Cityscape Global, which opened in Dubai today, will run till September 8.

The 792-sq-m exhibition space, located in the Sheikh Saeed Halls of the Dubai World Trade Centre, is Meydan’s most technologically advanced to date.  Designed to give visitors a true taste of what Meydan One Mall will look like and feature through virtual reality, the stand is expected to be one of the most popular at this year’s Cityscape Global showcase.

A sample model of the mall’s unique retractable roof, which will be opened in the cooler, winter months to create an alfresco shopping and dining atmosphere unlike any other, is on display at Cityscape to provide visitors with an idea of the technology used and the impact it will have on their future Dubai shopping experience.  

A 25,000-sq-m indoor multi-purpose sports facility will be located within the Meydan One Mall, providing regulation size sports fields and courts to cater to football, basketball, volleyball, squash, racquetball, paddle ball, table tennis, badminton, indoor cricket, mixed martial arts, boxing, jogging, softball, baseball batting cage and a golf driving range, while skiing and snowboarding will be facilitated on the world’s longest ski slope, measured at 1km.

Outdoor sports options will include football pitches, mountain biking, walking and running trails, a skateboard park and a BMX park.

The mall will also feature more than 90 food and beverage outlets, a 20-screen cinema with a food court hosting an additional 20 outlets, as well as a 400-m Central Canyon flanked by a collection of flagship luxury stores.  It will be serviced by car-parking facilities with more than 12,000 spaces.

The largest dancing water fountain in the world will act as just one of the mall’s main attractions, measuring 400 m in width and 100 m in height.

Meydan chairman Saeed Humaid Al Tayer said: “Dubai is a city well known for creating and breaking world records, in setting new benchmarks in quality and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.  In our vision for Meydan One we have worked hard to create all the wonders of a retail and leisure experience into one space, making this the number one destination for the UAE and indeed, the Middle East.” -  TradeArabia News Service
