Cityland Mall is on track for opening in the fourth quarter of this year, with 60 per cent of the project’s construction having been completed as of February 2018.
Leasing at the ‘nature-inspired’ shopping destination has also made considerable progress, with over 50 per cent of retail spaces being leased and committed. Construction work for the Carrefour hypermarket is nearly complete and will be ready for handover on or before the end of March. This will be the largest hypermarket in Dubailand.
Construction work for two major entertainment anchors – Vox Cinemas and Fabyland – are progressing and will be ready for handover within the next 6 to 8 weeks. By the end of Q2 2018, the site will be open for most mall tenants to commence their fit-out works.
“With consistent progress on both the construction and leasing side, we look forward to launching Cityland Mall to the public during the fourth quarter of this year. We have received strong interest from retailers and we are working to conclude the leasing activities by adding an additional 30 per cent of leased retail space by year-end. We anticipate the balance of the retail area to be fully committed by the end of Q1 2019,” said Fahimuddin Sharfuddin, CEO and board member of Cityland Group.
