Abu Dhabi’s Yas Mall has – as part of its redevelopment plan – reached 97 per cent occupancy, adding 55 new stores by the first quarter of the year.  The mall launched its redevelopment project in March 2021 with the aim to introduce more than 100 new retail stores catering to diverse customer preferences. The project work is on track for completion by summer this year.

The main anchors of the redevelopment plan span across food and beverage (F&B), entertainment, homeware, furnishing and accessories, fashion, beauty, jewelry, health, flexible co-working spaces, as well as corporate offices.

Building on its existing portfolio, the mall is increasing its F&B and entertainment offerings by over 50 per cent, and introducing a dedicated home furnishing district with new brands. The plan also includes bringing in trendy international fashion brands to the capital for the first time, as well as expanding the health, beauty and jewellery offering.

Saoud Khoory, chief retail officer of Aldar Investment, said: “Our redevelopment project remains on course as we continue to pioneer the retail industry and adapt to this evolving sector, with exclusive experiences and world-class retail and leisure offerings, while at the same time contributing to the local economy. Our transformational plan is in line with evolving customer needs and aims to future-proof Yas Mall, delivering a new and diversified offering to enrich the overall experience.”

New offerings for shoppers

An area spanning 25,000 sqm2 has been converted as part of the project. In addition, Yas Mall will soon be launching a brand-new retail concept, providing new concepts the opportunity to flourish as part of Aldar’s commitment to supporting SMEs.

In December 2021, the mall revealed the biggest sensorial screen within a mall space in the Middle East at Town Square. The interactive screen integrates an immersive sound and camera system and is the world’s highest resolution video wall built in a mall.

The upcoming new outlets will include a revamp to flagship stores such as Zara across two levels, as well as a facelift of some of the biggest anchor tenants, including Adidas, Sephora, Forever 21 and Zara Home. New F&B offerings will include Kronful, Sticky Rice, La Serre, Shiroi Izakaya, Montauk and Joud Café. The Boulevard will see upgraded sports offerings with five unique concepts and an experiential store by an international football club. Air Maniax, a large indoor inflatable park suitable for visitors of all ages, is another homegrown concept coming to Yas Mall.
