The  Al-Ghurair Center in Dubai is to complete an $544.5mn expansion this summer. It will add 150 new stores and food outlets, in addition to a hotel, a serviced-apartments tower and an office tower.

The Deira-based shopping centre was the first of its kind to open in Dubai more than three decades ago. It will almost double its retail area, with 150 additional stores and food outlets, refurbished cinemas, and a large entertainment zone with an indoor roller-coaster and an ice rink.

Ibrahim Al-Ghurair, managing director of Al-Ghurair Properties, described the mall expansion as a “vital component” in the ongoing development of a ‘revitalised’ Deira area.

The expansion is opening in stages. A five-star hotel and a serviced-apartments tower opened in December. The remaining retail and entertainment zone expansion is set to open for trade in mid-2013.

“We are confident that the expanded Al-Ghurair Center will be a hit with both residents and visitors and are very excited to be contributing to the Dubai Government’s exciting vision for old Dubai. With the expansion, we aim to benefit from the ongoing potential in this vitally important area, as well as contribute to its future development,” Al Ghurair added.
