With a gross leasable area of 47,300 sq m, the family-centric destination will feature unique entertainment centers, spectacular new retail outlets besides a wide range of F&B (food and beverages) concepts from across the Middle East and North Africa region and a layout unlike any other mall in the country, they added.
