In the first picture you have outlined the land allocated for the future expansion of the DIFC. And in your second, you have ventured into land sold to private developers for residential and hotel property developments. AND that land is way too close to the Sheikh's Palace grounds for it to have a shopping mall extension on it

And finally, you cannot have pedestrian links across the Financial Centre Road as it is double decked, making it impossible giving that it carries heavy vehicles and buses.

It's Dubai, they will go over the double decked road. or make some sort of tunnel that goes underneath. But if it is a future DIFC expansion land, then it wont be possible.

As for the land in black in the picture, as Face81 mentioned it is private and there will be buildings located there. The only way left I guess are the two red parts highlighted before.

I suppose the Mall extension might just be an euphemism for a redesign of the Gold Souk... most of it is no longer occupied by shops and even closed for public. Why extend the Mall to an additional building if its heart is deserted?

Hmm, including a hotel, ok. However, I don't think that they will remove the Burj steps as this place is regularly used as a venue for concerts. But I agree with Imre that the landscaping in front of the main entrance is not visible at all and this space is quite big and directly adjacent to the Mall.

But still, what about the Gold Souk!? To me, this proposed extension sounds like someone's having their head up in the clouds. Even in the "normal" part of the Mall quite a few shops are still not occupied. I agree that Dubai Mall is overall a busy place, but does it really need an extension? I will never understand why so many things get started in Dubai and are never truly finished

Maybe the so-called extansion does indeed includes the redevelopment of the Gold Souq area, but I don't agree about the main entrance part. Don't forget that the proposed tram service passes just next to the area, and they have already build the pillars for the tracks. Also, not everyone goes there by own car, or self-park it
