Aldar Properties, a leading property developer in the UAE, has officially opened the outdoor retail park at Al Jimi Mall, the first shopping and entertainment destination in Al Ain, following a key expansion and renovation programme.
The expansion to Al Ain’s shopping and entertainment destination gives Aldar a Dh1 billion ($272 million) asset in Al Ain, which will see the arrival of over 100 new brands and F&B outlets, bringing the total store count to over 200 shops.
Located in the heart of Al Ain, Al Jimi Mall provides a diverse range of retail options including the city’s first outdoor ‘Retail Park’ concept, new fashion and furniture stores, nine new F&B outlets at the Retail Park, and Al Ain’s first eight-screen Vox Cinemas.
Also, it includes two Theatre by Rhodes, offering a combination of fine food and the latest films through a partnership with British Michelin-starred chef Gary Rhodes.
The complex features one MAX cinema with a mega-screen for the biggest blockbusters, a KIDS cinema offering a colourful and safe environment for kids and four regular VOX Cinemas’ screens.
The extension adds 33,000 sqm of gross leasable area (GLA) to the mall, which is over 96% leased. It also includes 1,200 extra car parking spaces, doubling the capacity of the mall’s existing parking lot and making access even easier and more convenient for customers.
Al Jimi Mall is now home to a total of 34 F&B outlets including The Coffee Club, Costa, Triangle, and Café Afi, which shoppers can enjoy against a backdrop of the calming retail park water feature and an events plaza along its terrace.
