New shopping mall expands over 2.3 million square feet and comprises 300 shops and a family entertainment centre

Dhs. 1 billion project to be ready for Expo2020

Dubai-UAE: 19 April, 2017 - His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA), the regulatory body for Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), the integrated free zone technology park, today unveiled the commemorative plaque and laid the foundation stone for Silicon Mall, the new 2.3 million square feet shopping mall by the LuLu Group International (LuLu Group), one of the top retailers in the Middle East, at the hi-tech park. The total investment on this new project is expected to be around Dhs. 1 billion.

The ceremony was attended by Dr Mohammed Alzarooni, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DSOA, Yusuff Ali MA, Chairman and Managing Director of LuLu Group International as well as senior management from DSOA, and the Lulu Group.

Speaking at the event, Dr Mohammed Alzarooni said: “We have tremendous respect for companies, small and large, that have been instrumental in fostering the momentous growth of Dubai and the UAE. Dubai Silicon Oasis is one such entity that has not only created an enabling business environment for corporations, but has also encouraged partnerships with like-minded entities that share its vision and proactively contribute to the local economy. 

He added: “We are proud to announce that LuLu Group has chosen to locate its upcoming mega mall within the premises of this hi-tech park. Construction of the mall - which is currently underway - will be completed by 2020, an important year when the nation expects to welcome approximately 25 million visitors hoping to enjoy the Dubai Expo 2020 and other unique national experiences and sights.”

Dr Alzarooni concluded: “We are keen on providing the utmost support, which position DSOA as an integrated community for its visitors, employees, and residents. We are pleased today to lay the foundation stone of Silicon Mall, which is on track with consumers' preferences of retail environments and the latest in sustainable infrastructure. We are pleased to host Silicon Mall, the LuLu Group's newest shopping mall project. We believe it will provide residents and tourists of all ages with a unique shopping and entertainment experience. The new architectural project fits seamlessly with Dubai Silicon Oasis's objective of driving constant innovation and creativity.”

Speaking to media at the ceremony, Yusuffali MA, said: “Silicon Mall is our most ambitious project in the UAE to date, and we intend to make it the most interesting and exciting mall in Dubai. Work on the project will be completed in a period of 30 months, just in time for the launch of Dubai EXPO 2020.”

He added: “The UAE is poised for strong economic growth and I am very optimistic about the future, especially for the retail industry. The far-sighted and visionary leadership of this great country has planned many game-changing and innovative initiatives and we are delighted to be a part of this incredible success story.”

Leveraging best-in-class international standards and green building concepts, the Silicon Mall at Dubai Silicon Oasis will feature a futuristic façade that is set to serve as its unique value proposition. It will comprise sky-lit corridors for natural light harvesting on all floors. The mall will offer covered parking for up to 3,000 cars across two levels.

With easy and convenient access to the Dubai Expo site and the new Al Maktoum International Airport, the new shopping mall is poised to become a popular destination for both residents and tourists in Dubai's vibrant retail landscape.

In addition to more than 300 international and local branded stores, and 12 anchor stores, the new shopping mall will also house the ever-popular LuLu Hypermarket and Department Store on two levels. Other key attractions include the biggest Family Entertainment Center spread across 70,000 sq. ft. and more than 50 F&B outlets and diverse entertainment and leisure offerings.

Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) is a technology park and provides an integrated living and working community. DSO's urban master-planned community spans 7.2 million square meters and has been carefully divided into five main pillars - industrial, commercial, education, living and residences, and public facilities. The technology park enjoys state-of-the-art utility infrastructure featuring advanced telecommunications, electricity, and road networks. It is home to residential and commercial facilities - schools, nurseries, community shopping centers, cafes, restaurants, healthcare, and wellness among others. DSOA recently announced the Silicon Park, a landmark development spanning 150,000 square meters - the first integrated smart city project taking shape at the hi-tech park.
