Expansion creates 70 dining venues, multiple forms of entertainment and more than 250 international brands
Gulf Related, the joint venture between Gulf Capital and Related Companies, has announced the completion of The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s expansion, thus turning it into a major entertainment and leisure hub in the UAE capital.
In a statement, the joint venture said that guests will have access to 70 dining venues, multiple forms of entertainment and more than 250 international brands under one roof. The expansion is more than 80% leased with nearly all stores expected to open by the end of the year.
The statement added that the expansion builds on the success of The Galleria’s Luxury Collection, which has seen year-on-year sales growth every year since opening in 2013.
The expansion introduces 250 new brands, three levels of world-class entertainment, urban rooftop parks and an exciting line-up of community and seasonal events
Unique art installations, created exclusively for The Galleria by local and international artists, pay homage to the culture and heritage of Abu Dhabi.
Decorating public spaces, artists including Sheikh Firdous, Julia Ibbini, Ahmed Al Zarooni and Soroshi Michelle highlight traditional and ancient arts such as Sadu Weaving and Nabati poetry. Installations also highlight Abu Dhabi’s natural landscape, the city’s present-day multiculturalism and its prosperous future, said the developer.
“Today we opened our doors to The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s expansion and launched a new era of shopping, dining and entertainment for the capital. This incredible lifestyle destination was developed for the people of Abu Dhabi and caters to every member of the community with a unique offering that includes rooftop parks, entertainment for all ages and the city’s best shopping and dining experience,” said Daniel Parry, managing director of Gulf Related.
“We’re excited to welcome the community to eat, play, shop and indulge at The Galleria for generations to come,” he noted.
