Dubai developer Nakheel announced that it has partnered with VOX Cinemas for its upcoming Nakheel Mall on Palm Jumeirah island.
Spread across 60,000 sq ft at Nakheel Mall, VOX Cinemas will occupy two-storeys and feature 15 theatres including the VOX MAX big-screen concept and the luxury VOX GOLD experience.
Ali Rashid Lootah, Nakheel’s chairman said: “Our new collaboration with VOX Cinemas underpins our commitment to providing an unmatched range of dining, shopping, entertainment and lifestyle facilities at Nakheel Mall.”
The 418,000 square metre mall on Palm Jumeirah will feature five retail levels with 300 shops, three basement parking levels with 4,000 spaces, two anchor department stores, medical centre and fitness complex.
There will also be a roof plaza with fine dining restaurants and food and beverage outlets.
More than half of the 100,000 sqm of retail space has already been booked by brands, Nakheel confirmed in a statement.
Construction of the Nakheel Mall began earlier this year, with anticipated completion in 2017.
It is located alongside The Palm Tower, Nakheel’s new, 52-storey hotel and residential complex, which features 504 residences and a 290-room hotel.
The mall aims to cater to the 30,000 residents on Palm Jumeirah and the growing number of tourists visiting Dubai.
Nakheel is currently boosting its retail portfolio across the city and is developing a slew of new projects including The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah, Deira Islands Mall, Deira Islands Night Souk, Jumeirah Village Mall and expansion to Dragon Mart Mall and Ibn Battuta Mall.
The company’s first two neighbourhood retail centres – at Jumeirah Park and Discovery Gardens – opened earlier this year, with four more on the way at Nakheel communities across Dubai.
