WEEKENDEDITION Always eager to up the ante, Dubai is now planning to develop the Mall of the World, a colossal 48 million-square-foot indoor complex, promenade and shopping mall, with, of course, temperature-controlled streets.

Mall of the World will also feature 100 hotels and apartment buildings with over 20,000 hotel rooms, the world’s largest indoor theme park and a three million-square-foot wellness centre, according to Buzzbuzzhome.


The “mall” component will have 8 million square feet of leasable space, but in terms of total area and not just leasable space, Dubai Mall will remain the largest shopping center in the world at 13 million square feet. [Buzzbuzzhome]Christopher Cameron
