Reem Mall concept gets UPC nod


July 6, 2015 | By RetailME Bureau

The concept plans of Reem Mall – one of the upcoming shopping, entertainment and dining destinations in Abu Dhabi – has been approved by Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC).

The Concept Planning Report (CPR) approval represents a significant milestone for the $1 billion project and paves its plan to open in 2018.

The news comes just weeks after UPC gave the go-ahead for the Reem Island Integrated Concept Masterplan. Reem Mall forms a significant element of the overall vision for Reem Island, which will eventually become home for 210,000 residents.

Once completed, Reem Mall, developed by the National Real Estate Company (NREC) – one of the largest real estate companies in the region with projects across the MENA – in partnership with United Projects for Aviation Services Company (UPAC), will deliver two million sqft of retail, dining and leisure and entertainment offers with some 450 stores including 85 F&B outlets.

“The UPC approval represents a major milestone in the development of Reem Mall, allowing the project to move closer to the construction phase. Subject to all required permits, we look forward to breaking ground on site this year,” says Shane Eldstrom, chief operating officer, Reem Mall.
