Shopping mall plan as part of 40-shop expansion due to open in Q3 2010.
Mall of the Emirates on Sunday announced plans to add an extra 750 parking spaces by May as a part of the mall's new 40-store expansion.
"We're expecting a lot more visitors and to make sure we can give them the most convenient trip, it was essential to increase the number of spaces too," said Fuad Sharaf, vice president, Mall of the Emirates.
Scheduled to open at the end of the third quarter of 2010, an additional 10,500 square metres of retail space is being added to one of the biggest malls in the UAE.
"By the end of April, we expect work on the parking to be near completion, with full access to Al Barsha and Sheikh Zayed Road from all levels," added Sharaf.
"In June, we will also have a brand new taxi drop-off and pick-up area at the north east corner of the mall with a refurbished entrance and lobby," he said.For all the latest retail news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
