Four-level complex has around 150 shops and kiosks across 118,000 square feet of ground floor retail space
Nakheel chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah, has opened a new AED169 million ($46 million) retail complex and multi-storey car park at Dragon City as it aims to build on its 40 million annual visitors.
The four-level complex has around 150 shops and kiosks across 118,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, with 900 parking bays above.
Nakheel said in a statement that it was built to meet growing customer demand at Dragon Mart, where more than 1,700 Chinese tradesmen and women operate 5,000 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets.
Sun Tour, one of Dragon Mart’s biggest and longest-standing tenants, is occupying the entire retail area, with a new range of shops selling clothes, household goods, electronics, luggage and more.
Dragon City, home of the globally-famous Dragon Mart 1 and 2, is the world’s biggest Chinese trading hub outside mainland China.
The master development also has an ibis Styles hotel, which opened in 2016, and a Premier Inn, opening this year. Dragon Towers, the community’s first residential development, is under construction.
