Deerfield Town Square shopping mall, Abu Dhabi.
More than 50 percent of a $190m Abu Dhabi shopping mall slated to open by the end of this year is leased to retailers, it was announced on Sunday.
Deerfields Town Square Mall in Al Bahia, which is currently under construction, also has "numerous other retailers very close to leasing", officials said in a statement.

Deerfields Townsquare, a community mall on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi, is about 60 per cent leased and will open the first phase within weeks.
The mall, located in Al Bahia, a few minutes from Khalifa City A, Al Reef and Al Raha Beach, is targeting an opening date of May 6 for its anchor Carrefour.
It will feature about 162 stores, a family entertainment centre, restaurants and a cinema, with 80,000 square metres of leasable space.
Deerfields carried out market research in surrounding areas to ask residents what they wanted before approaching the brands. A hypermarket, restaurants, family entertainment centre, and high street fashion all came high on the list.
"They based the retail mix on the needs of the community," said Berna Ramey, the marketing director of Deerfields. "They're not going to buy a Gucci or a Fendi every day. They wanted H&M. They wanted Carrefour."
