Opening soon: This megaproject will have a mall on top of a metro station
This neighbourhood in Old Dubai is getting a revamp…
Deira is one of Dubai’s historic locations and as part of the Deira Enrichment Project, the neighbourhood will be rejuvenated while preserving its unique cultural characteristics.
Earlier this week on August 16, Ithra Dubai announced the completion of ‘One Deira’ as part of the enrichment project for the district.
Here’s what we know
One Deira will consist of a number of features, but two of the highlights include a state-of-the-art integrated transportation hub and the first mall in Dubai constructed atop a metro station.
The transportation hub will provide easy access to all of Dubai Roads and Transport Authority services including the Dubai Metro, an RTA bus terminal and a taxi stand. The space will also have an additional podium with more than 150 parking spaces.
In another first for the country, the project will also unveil the first retail complex built above a Dubai Metro station. According to The National News, the mall will be connected to the Gold Souq metro station on Dubai’s Green Line.
Though in an unconventional location, it will boast an impressive structure and exceptional design. Shoppers will love the fact that they won’t lose valuable shopping time on a walkway.
Other features will include an office building and a hotel building with 100+ rooms.
