Cityland Group has unveiled plans for an AED1.1bn ($299.4M) nature-inspired mall in Dubai.
The Cityland Mall will feature an 18,600sq m botanical garden named Central Park at its core and 105,000sq m of leasable space.
The central park will include a miniature version of the Miracle Garden, a mini water park, an ancient tree garden, a Japanese garden, a 360-degree rooftop garden, and restaurants and cafes.
The mall will also feature a 3,000-seat amphitheatre, a 9,300sq m hypermarket, 75 dining outlets, a cinema, and a car park for 6,000 cars.
Cityland Group CEO and board member Fahimuddin Sharfuddin said: “The mall guarantees an immersive experience for all members of the family, led by a strong selection of renowned fashion retailers, convenience store, cinema theatre and dining options that are both internationally reputed and locally popular.
“What sets Cityland Mall apart is an open-air botanical garden that forms the nucleus of the mall — both literally within the mall architecture and symbolically, since it will be its hallmark attraction. Families, children and environment enthusiasts will be treated to an awe-inspiring assortment of floral specimens.”
The 204,400sq m development is set to be launched in the middle of 2018.
