  • April 21st, 2022

Dubai is constructing the first temperature-controlled metropolis, which will span about 4.5 million square meters (over 1,100 acres). It will reside in the Mall of the World, covered by a glass dome and open all year.

The project is in construction by Dubai Holding and will have an area of 8,000,000ft2 containing the largest shopping mall. Comparatively to Dubai’s existing shopping mall concept, this will be a multi-level retail street network.

The 7-kilometre-long promenades that connect all of the facilities will be covered and air-conditioned in the summer and open in the winter, ensuring that temperatures remain comfortable all year.

The idea would feature a wellness devoted zone for medical tourists, a cultural celebration area, and diverse hospitality options, including 100 hotels and serviced apartment complexes with 20,000 hotel rooms catering to several guests. The project would contain parking facilities on the bottom level with a capacity of up to 50,000 automobiles.

The Dubai Cultural District will serve as a focal point for UAE cultural events and festivals. Specialized theatre district with venues inspired by some of the famous landmarks, such as London West End and New York Broadway. The Celebration Walk will connect the cultural sector to the remainder of the Mall and will follow after Barcelona Ramblas Street. The Dubai Cultural District will feature conference, wedding, and celebration facilities that accommodate thousands of people, reflecting a diverse social fabric.

Once finished, the city will attract over 180 million visitors each year, making it a year-round destination.
“This project complements our plans to transform Dubai into a cultural, tourist, and economic hub for the two billion people living in the region around us; and we are determined to achieve our vision,” said Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Emirate’s ruler and vice president of the United Arab Emirates.

“The growth in family and retail tourism underpins the need to enhance Dubai’s tourism infrastructure as soon as possible. We are confident of our economy’s strength, optimistic about our country’s future, and we continue to broaden our vision,” he said.
