In 2023, This Mall Became the Most Visited Place on Earth

The Largest Mall in Dubai is About to Get Bigger

Emaar Properties announced on Monday a massive AED 1.5 billion expansion of Dubai Mall, which will include 240 new luxury stores and food and beverage outlets. The contractor is already mobilizing on-site for this large-scale project.

Mohamed Alabbar, announcing the news, stated, "The new Dubai Mall expansion is a great addition to one of the most visited sites in the world. It reflects Dubai’s ambitious vision to remain at the forefront of global innovation and culture, further solidifying our city's position as a top global destination."

In 2023, Dubai Mall became the most visited place on Earth, achieving a new attendance record with 105 million visitors, a 19 percent increase from the previous year.

It is the world's second-largest shopping mall. Currently, it measures 1.2 million square meters and already boasts more than 1,200 retail outlets.

Mohamed Alabbar, the founder of Emaar, had earlier announced an upcoming mall in Dubai that would allow customers to drive through it in electric cars. The mall would be located in Dubai Creek Harbor, and the development would also include a tower, termed the "female Burj Khalifa," Alabbar added.
