Dubai is no stranger to epic malls and breaking records and now, you can add this upcoming mall to the list.

The upcoming mall is located between the Meydan Hotel and Al Khail road.

What makes it special?

You might be wondering what would make this mall stand out next to the other amazing ones already available in Dubai. Well, rest assured there is lots!

The Meydan One Mall will host the world’s longest indoor ski slope covering 1km and the world’s largest dancing fountain at 380m in length. Sounds familiar? The Dubai Mall is about to have some competition!

The mall will also feature a 160m by 100m retractable roof. So while you can enjoy the blissful air conditioning in the hot summer months, you can still enjoy the beautiful weather the rest of the year!

What’s in it?

It will be home to 620 shops, 100 food and beverage outlets and a 131,000-square foot hypermarket. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a 400m strip just for luxury brands.

While a list of stores hasn’t been revealed yet, shoppers can look forward to new brands and exclusive lines.
