UAE's Nakheel opens 4,500 parking bays at Dragon Mart retail complex

Posted on 16th December 2015

UAE-based master developer Nakheel has more than doubled the number of parking bays at its 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 Nakheel’s newly-opened, 1.9-million-sq-ft 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.

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, said a statement from Nakheel.

The Dragon Mart 2 boasts more than 500 new shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets, adding to the 3,500 stores and kiosks across the road at the renowned retail destination.

Among them is a 100,000-sq-ft Geant hypermarket, which opened last month 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.

Omar Khoory, the director of Nakheel Retail, pointed out that Dragon Mart was already welcoming 65,000 people on a daily basis and 80,000 during its busiest periods, according to Tradearabia news report.

"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," he added.
