Shane Eldstrom, Chief Operating Officer for Al Farwaniya, commented: “We are excited to receive our developer license. This milestone is indicative of our commitment to Abu Dhabi’s construction landscape and the development of world-class projects. The licensing of developers is a positive step for Abu Dhabi as it continues to establish itself as a world leader in urban planning and development.”
“Reem Mall is poised to deliver an unprecedented retail, food and beverage as well as a family-focused entertainment offering spread across 2 million sq. ft. of leasable space with a total floor area of more than 2.8 million sq. ft.”
Comprising around 450 stores including 85 food and beverage outlets, a diverse palette of entertainment offerings, hypermarket, four department stores, a multiplex cinema, two food courts and the world’s largest indoor snow play park, the $1 billion retail development’s construction broke ground on Abu Dhabi’s Reem Island in December 2015.
Strategically positioned within the new master-developed and commercial zone of Reem Island, Reem Mall will be easily accessible to and from Abu Dhabi’s mainland. Offering a significant 6,800 parking spaces for shoppers’ convenience, Reem Mall promises a unique experience which combines best-in-class shopping and entertainment that will enhance Abu Dhabi’s leisure and lifestyle atmosphere.
Developed by NREC and UPAC, Reem Mall is expected to open in late 2018.
