Initial proposals in 2014:
Proposed mega project which would upon completion be the largest covered retail area in the world. Initial details of the project include having '100 hotels totaling 20,000 hotel rooms', a 3 million sq. ft. wellness district and a cultural center.
The centerpiece of the project is the 8 million sq. ft. retail center which will be enclosed by glass roof domes that will ensure a temperature controlled environment. The roof domes can be retracted during the cooler winter months.
The project is to be built in phases over ten years and reportedly will cost AED 25 billion.
