Epic New Mega Mall with Crystal Lagoons Amenity to Open in Dubai in 2020
Dubai may not have a shortage of mega malls, but a brand new one set to open its doors next year may outdo them all. Spanning almost 1.5 million square metres, Meydan One mall will be home to an array of shops, restaurants and some epic entertainment facilities –including a 49-acre man-made crystalline lagoon by Crystal Lagoons® – when it opens in the second half of 2020.
Crystal Lagoons has developed a pioneering, innovative and sustainable technology that has been patented worldwide, which allows crystalline lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at very low costs anywhere in the world, using a minimum amount of additives and energy. And Meydan One is a perfect example of the success Crystal lagoons amenities have enjoyed the world round.
The success of the firm’s water amenity has been so overwhelming, that plans for the lagoon to expand have been approved and will total 93-acres once completed. The first phase of the crystalline lagoon surrounded by 500 metres of idyllic beaches and waterpark along with a 380-metre-long dancing fountain, is currently operational.
The entertainment aspect continues with a huge multipurpose plaza that will have capacity for up to 30,000 people, while the new events space will host a diverse range of cultural and entertainment activities for visitors of all ages.
Elsewhere, the mall will be home to more than 550 shops, a 13,200 square metre hypermarket, 190 restaurants and bars, a 21-screen cinema and over 12,000 car parking spaces. The project will also include a 1km indoor ski slope.
Meydan One Mall will be part of the huge Meydan One development, currently under construction between the Meydan Hotel and Al Khail Road.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs.
