The ‘Big Box’ Retail Mall is a full-service BSBG project undertaken for long-term partner and developer Al Futtaim Group Real Estate, as part of a masterplan being developed by wasl Properties. The new retail mall will be home to more than 100 retail units, a large hardware store, a supermarket and a department store, as well as Dubai’s second IKEA.
The mall will be developed incorporating the latest state-of-the-art sustainable solutions, such as LED lighting, solar panels and materials that provide extra insulation to reduce the carbon footprint of the development. End-user convenience and sustainable features are regarded as central components to the overall concept of the project.
The new IKEA will surpass the Dubai Festival City store in terms of size and scale, providing residents in the popular areas of Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lakes Towers with access to the world renowned furniture supplier on their doorstep. The project is set for a 2019 delivery.
