HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum announced that the emirate is planning to build the world's first temperature-controlled city that will house the world's largest mall, "Mall of the World" at 8 million square feet.

Aside from the mall, the ambitious 48 million square feet project will also include:
  • 20,000 rooms across 100 hotels and serviced apartments
  • Dubai Cultural District - a cultural celebration centre
  • World's largest indoor theme park covered by a glass dome that is open during winter
  • Wellness district - catering to medical tourists in 3 million square feet area
 The project will be one of many retail and hospitality showpiece developments for Dubai Expo 2020.


The Mall of the World is to be located along Sheikh Zayed Road, near Al Barsha area. Unlike the traditional western mall ideas, Mall of the World will boast a "retail street network" concept stretching over 7 kilometers.


The mall would also host the world’s largest indoor theme park.


A report from Gulfnews says that future tenants of the "Wellnes District" cluster will offer not just cosmetic and wellness treatments but top-of-the-line health care, including specialized surgical procedures.


Gulfnews report added that the Dubai Cultural District developer is eyeing for touchstones similar to what a visitor would see in London’s West End or New York’s Broadway.

It will have the ‘Celebration Walk’, akin to Barcelona’s Ramblas Street. There will be direct connectivity from the cultural cluster – which will offer a mix of conference, celebration and even wedding halls - to the rest of the mall.


Here's a video presentation of the project:
