Here are some renderings of the Dubai Mall taken from the site courtesy of dubai_dude. I like having the images in the thread.













That golden dome in one of the pics reminds me of Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock. I think I also spot a prehistoric fish in the aquarium (the big flat one).. or maybe I just don't know my fishies well enough.. oughta watch more Discovery Channel.

Thanks for the pictures Bulldozer girl :)

Trances come on man , i mean if this was a tiny mall , i guess 4 floors is nothing , but this is 870,000 m2 i mean thats almost ten million square feet

city center is only 2.8 million :) and it is still quite big , this will be 10+million with four floors

i wonder how big the Arabian mall will be , does anybody have any idea how big it will be ?

maybe 15 - 20 million square feet :) who knows !!

when i saw the vedio of it on the t.v is said you could go for months and months on end ( i think they said for a year) going and eating at different restaurants and never having to eat at the same one twice

so i guess there will be about 340+ restaurants :p;)

i don't know if it's better to have more or less floors. i think the whole concept is well done. 4 floors are ok!

i suppose, if dubai mall had 8 floors or even more, people wouldn't realize how big it is!!!

they know and see that it is big and has a huge area, so they come more often!!! maybe this is what the constructors intend?!?!

Hmm.. I don't think you can walk in any of the top levels of that aquarium "corridor" with a skirt on. Btw., where did they say people can swim with dolphins and whales? Was it in Dubai Mall, Atlantis, or Dubailand?

HOLY SHIT!!!!!

The retail space in Dubai Mall is 400,000m2

You sure 16,000 car parks is enough???

I remember to have heard that it will have 16,000 covered car park plus many more in the open around the mall.

World's largest aquarium to enchant visitors at The Dubai Mall
Spectacular views and a line-up of unique aquatic attractions are in store for visitors to The Dubai Mall Aquarium, which will be the world's largest indoor marine mammal pavilion.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The sheer size and magnitude of the aquatic offering will be a fitting complement to the world's largest shopping mall by Emaar, which is part of the company's prestigious Burj Dubai District which will boast The Burj Dubai, the tallest residential building in the world.

Said Ibrahim Al Hashemi, Executive Director, Retail, Emaar: 'The aquarium will be an integral part of The Dubai Mall's diverse entertainment portfolio and is bound to impress visitors with the grand scale of its development. Designed to world-class standards, the aquarium will allow visitors to experience the exotic wonders of aquatic life first-hand through breathtaking views and a choice of leisure and dining activities.'

Located strategically in the centre of the mall, the 50m long aquarium will be flanked by two glass tunnels at varying levels offering windows into the incredible diversity of marine life. Travelling through these, visitors will be treated to an exceptional underwater experience as they see eye-to-eye with sharks, stingrays and other species of fish in their natural habitat.

A host of cafes and fine dining restaurants surrounding the aquarium will offer visitors a choice to dine or relax and enjoy the fantastic views.

Other attractions include a state-of-the-art discovery centre whereby both children and adults can enhance their knowledge about the aquatic world through a selection of books, audio-visual presentations and exhibits. In close vicinity will be a souvenir shop offering exciting mementos and gifts.

'The aquarium will inspire wonder and appreciation of nature in our visitors. With its captivating views and multifarious attractions, The Aquarium is a must see for all age groups and will make one's visit to the Dubai Mall truly memorable, ' Al Hashemi added.

The iconic Burj Dubai tower and The Dubai Mall are the imposing cornerstones of Emaar's 400-acre Burj Dubai District and potent symbols of the scale of Emaar's ambition to see Downtown Dubai take shape.

The District also includes The Boulevard a 3.5km stretch of exquisite architecture drawing on styles from around the world, The Residences' exclusive upscale apartments and the stylish antiquity of The Old Town.

Dubai mall lease rates soar
The lease rates for prime retail space in Dubai shopping malls could pass USD136 per sqft in the near future, agents told Gulf News. Retailers said that mall owners could currently name their price as there was a shortage of space. But in the next three years available space will double from seven to 15m sqft.
