Abu Dhabi residents can get ready for more shopping options as two new projects are underway and will soon open to cater to all their retail needs.

Reem Mall

Although no specific date has been announced, Reem Mall is expected to open its doors to the public shortly.

Located on Abu Dhabi’s Reem Island, the $1.2 billion (Dh4.4 billion) mega project, is right in the heart of new Abu Dhabi.

The mall comprises more than 400 stores, around 85 restaurants and cafes and a range of family-focused entertainment offerings including Vox Cinemas across two million square feet of retail space.
