The Dubai Mall – Za’abeel Expansion

Dubai, UAE


The Dubai Mall Zabeel Expansion (TDMZE) is an expansion to the existing Dubai Mall (the world’s largest mall) which will increase the footprint of the mall by 40% by connecting the two structures with a number of bridges, the largest being the link-bridge which is 200m long 50m wide bridge that will cross the financial centre road elevated multilane highways at a high level (level 6).  TDME will contain retail and car parking.

TDMZE building will provide additional parking to the existing Dubai Mall as well as a substantial increase in retail (including 3 new anchor tenants), food and beverage areas and restaurants.  There is also a provision for a future 50+ storey residential tower to be integrated into this project.
