Brand new shopping mall and IKEA to open in Dubai
A new shopping mall will open in Dubai in December, alongside an IKEA.
The mall, Festival Plaza, will be located in Jebel Ali, just past Ibn Battuta Mall, and will be home to 120 shops, as well as the IKEA site. Both will be particularly accessible to residents of Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lake Tower as part of the new Wasl Gate community.
The project was launched in 2017 and will include both an ACE outlet and a Lulu Hypermarket store. The mall is also set to include a kids club and a 500-seat food court with over 40 dining options, while drivers will be happy to hear that there will be more than 2,300 parking spaces.
If it’s much-loved Swedish furniture you’re after, then the IKEA is definitely an exciting development. It will be the biggest in Dubai. Shoppers really are spoilt for choice in this emirate, and Festival Plaza will be the newest attraction, covering 64,000 square meters. We can’t wait to explore.
