A visitor to Meydan One Mall, a 15.6-million SF complex in the heart of Dubai, can expect far more than a premier shopping experience. While it certainly contains 650 chain, boutique, and high-end stores—as well as over a hundred dining options curated in thoughtful food courts—it also seamlessly integrates an array of destination attractions, cultivating a one-of-a-kind experience.
Walking through the mall’s central gallery, a magnificent canyon-like corridor that lies under an extended retractable skylight, visitors can walk from the r canal, on one end, to the mall’s central plaza on the other. The plaza itself is designed to be an attraction, with a grand gathering area and a massive water feature overlooking the nearby water canal. More than a hundred restaurants, cafés, and food kiosks are placed throughout the mall, many of which have terraces that overlook the concerts or dancing water shows held in Meydan One plaza.
The abundance of recreational attractions elevates Meydan One Mall into an adventure destination. There are spaces for sports like indoor football, table tennis, and mixed martial arts. Extreme sports enthusiasts can find their place at the BMX course, skateboarding park, and climbing wall. The most eye-catching element of the design, though, is the world’s longest indoor ski slope—a half-mile terrain capable of conjuring a wholly different climate.
With its central location, tourists can stay at adjacent hotels, while the mall’s direct connection to public transit and its thirteen thousand parking spaces make it an unforgettable destination accessible to all.
