A new link has opened between Nakheel’s Ibn Battuta Mall and the Dubai Metro station, meaning easier public transport access to more than 400 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets at the world’s largest themed mall.
The two-storey, 210-metre walkway enables passengers using the Metro or bus services to directly access the mall.
Mirroring the architectural design of the main mall, the Metro connection features 90 new retail and dining outlets due to open later this year.
Themed around the journeys of renowned 14th century Arabian explorer, Ibn Battuta, the mall has 400 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets.
The mall-metro connection is part of an ongoing expansion at the mall, that will increase its size to 7 million sq ft.
Phase one – a 300,000 sq ft extension with 60 new shops and restaurants opened in May this year, with brands such as Decathlon, United Furniture, Marks & Spencer, Under Armour, Iconic, Superdry, Jashanmal and Paul opening at the mall.
