Hi all.

Hi Imre.
There is lots of space on the Doha street side alright.
Didn't they change the name of that street a while ago ?

Hi Face.

There probably is enough space in the area you drew out considering the mall is what ? ... 5 levels high ?
There will be a right of way distance they will have to stay back from Emaar blvd and they can't encroach onto the BK site so they will be some distance from The Offices (BK annex).
I wonder if Imre has it right, on the Doha street side ? Although I agree the area you drew out is probably where the elevated walkway to the Metro will be.

As for the building I was referring to ...
I meant the one in the render you posted (originally posted by gevorika78), to the left of what looks like the Address Dubai Mall. It's a non-existent building.


Ray.

Ray, the press release mentioned that the extension will include hotel space so maybe that building is the proposed new hotel. I think there has always been a hotel proposed for a site around there.

As for the area between the mall and the anex of the Burj, now is an open space with stairs and is quite big actually, although it would sad if it'd have to go.

Yes, Financial Centre Road now

That space is just waste , also the landscaping is not really visible from outside because of the Double Decker Road..

Just an idea what is there:

i think that one of the best possibilities is to build the extension of the mall on unoccupied area between the mall and the Burj Side Boulevard, Burj Side Terrace, Hydra Downtown Tower, there is virtually nothing except sandy parking plot, should by connected to the mall via bridges

Personally i dont think that the proposed extension will be directly adjescent to the existing building and its facade, that would be waste of work already done

Hi Ray,

The Mall has 4 levels - a basement level, a ground floor and two floors over ground. They could easily add two more floors over the complex road network in the area I have outlined in red and potentially go higher as well.

I doubt they will do anything to the main street facing side of the mall. That road is called the Grand Boulevard and has a very intricate network of roads leading into and out of the mall from Financial Centre Road and the double decked road. Besides, it has an a great water feature and also has some very ornate entrances to the Gold Souk and Bloomingdales. I don't see them destroying all of that. An extension to the side, causing minimum disruption, taking in the new Dubai Metro link is most likely.

As for the buildings in the renders, the Burj Khalifa maintainance annex can be seen in the background, but as anyone who has ever lived/worked in Dubai will be able to tell you, the renders are not always what they seem and designers/architects have a habit of putting in random buildings and towers to improve the overall look of the rendering

I saw that as well, Altin, so it's most likely that the open space closest to the Burj Khalifa will go....

Not much space towards the Boulevard Plaza, also not enough space between the Annex and Mall :

Dubai mall 'expansion'??? Seriously? That mall is Humungous... what more could it possibly need? Indoor water park? Space port? Hospital/plastic surgery center? Shopping university? Been to Dubai several times, one or two days and I was clawing to get out... most stressful city i've ever been to...

I am not sure what they are/will be building opposite Dubai Mall, but the space could be used as the expansion of the mall connecting the two parts with AC overpasses. Shown in blue in this pic:

If nothing is planned for that area i think it would be a good idea.
