Al-Futtaim has announced a rapid expansion plan for Dubai Festival City Mall, and the details have got us excited.
We get it, as if tearing people away from The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates isn’t hard enough, there’s another new generation of even more mind-blowing malls on its way. And what do the main characters do in the movies when faced with younger competition? Head straight to the mall for a make-over…
In addition to new shops and leisure facilities, the majority of the DFC Mall polish will concentrate on four key areas: the enhancement of Festival Bay; increasing WiFi effectiveness and penetration along with other tech upgrades, like phone charging points; increasing the availability of family Stay ‘N’ Play entertainment options and improvements to record-breaking, light and sound spectacular, IMAGINE.
The nightly free-to-view sensory extravaganza, which is about to launch a new show this October will be receiving a 4D tool-up so it can reach even more noggin-blowing proportions. There’ll also be an overhaul of the Bay’s spectating facilities, an area with the capacity to accommodate over 10,000 people for special occasions.
Even better news, the enhancements are set to be completed before Expo 2020, so we won’t have long to wait at all. Mood: Festival.
