“We are glad to inaugurate our fourth mall in Dubai today, following the huge success our other malls have witnessed, and which helped increased investment and shopping opportunities in a framework of social shopping experience, which was highly commended by the public,” Lootah said. “We have been keen to introduce shopping centres with a different concept, which aims to strengthen social interaction and offer recreation and services in a distinguished way, in line with instructions from His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to offer distinguished services that fulfill individual requirements in a modern way,” he added.

Lootah said he was expecting a huge visitor turnout as soon as the shopping centre was opened.

Covering an area of 19,727 sqft, the new outlet includes a number of shops such as Lulu Express, Al Ansari Exchange, Saba Palace Restaurant, Galadari Driving Institute and others.
