15 December 2015Developer more than doubles parking facilities to meet growing customer demand at expanding retail hub
Dubai - Nakheel has more than doubled the number of parking bays at its growing Dragon Mart retail complex in Dubai with the opening of a new multi-storey and roof car park that accommodates 4,500 vehicles.
Located at Dragon Mart 2, Nakheel's newly-opened, 1.9 million square foot extension to the original Dragon Mart, the new spaces bring the total number of bays at the retail hub to over 8,200. Parking is free of charge.
Omar Khoory, Director of Nakheel Retail, said: "Dragon Mart already welcomes 65,000 people a day, and 80,000 during our busiest periods. Dragon Mart 2 will bring even more shoppers and traders to this expanding retail hub. We are expecting over 100,000 daily visitors as the extension gathers momentum and word spreads about our exciting new destination."
Dragon Mart 2 contains over 500 new shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets, adding to the 3,500 stores and kiosks across the road at the world-famous Dragon Mart 1. Among them is a 100,000 square foot Geant hypermarket, which opened in November this year, and a 12-screen Novo Cinema complex, opening soon. There is also a food court and a separate dining terrace offering a range of indoor and outdoor eating venues.
Dragon Mart 1 and 2 are just a couple of minutes' walk from each other, allowing shoppers to use either the new or original, 3,700-space car park to visit both malls. The complexes are separated by Dragon Drive, a tree-lined boulevard where a number of new attractions and cafés are planned.
