Deira Islands Mall is a proposed a 15.3 sq km waterfront development situated on Deira Islands.
When complete it will be the biggest mall in Dubai in terms of retail space, with 4 million square feet of lettable area. The total built-up area will measure 10.3 million square feet, including a 3.8 million square foot car park with 8,400 spaces.
The three-storey mall will contain over 1,000 shops, cafés, restaurants and entertainment outlets and be covered by a dramatic 1km-long retractable glass atrium allowing for open-air shopping in cooler months.
Deira Mall will be the centrepiece of Deira Central, a Dh5 billion cluster of 16 residential towers containing nearly 3,000 apartments. Together, the Mall and the Deira Central will have 4.5 million square feet of retail space.
The contract to build the Dh6.1 billion mall has been awarded to United Engineering Construction. Construction is due to start in the first quarter of 2018 following vibro-compaction work on site at Deira Islands.
