Dubai loves living life big size. This ideology is pretty much carried over to the architecture in the city too. Now, Emirate’s rulers have begun planning to bring home the world’s largest mall, nicknamed the Mall of the World. Unlike any created in the world, this mall will turn Dubai into a bigger shopping hotspot than it already is. To cover a massive area of 8,000,000 square feet, roughly about four times the size of UK’s biggest mall, the MetroCentre, the Mall of the World will literally be an air-conditioned ‘city within a city’.
The mall will play home to a theme park, Broadway style theaters, nearly 100 hotels and will also house ships, lakes and waterfalls! 4.4 miles of climate-controlled roads will help visitors get around the mall. “This project complements our plans to transform Dubai into a cultural, tourist and economic hub for the 2 billion people living in the region around us – and we are determined to achieve our vision,” said Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
