Abu Dhabi-based Aldar Properties announced this week that since the opening of Yas Mall in November of 2014, they have welcomed over twenty million people; eighteen million of whom visited in 2015. In its first year Yas Mall redefined the UAE's shopping landscape by bringing together many of the world's most sought after brands under one roof. As more and more people choose to make Yas Island their home and as increasing numbers of tourists from around the world choose Yas Island to experience its unique leisure and hospitality offerings, Yas Mall is poised to welcome more visitors than ever before.
Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chief Executive Officer at ALDAR Properties PJSC commented, "I am very pleased with the growth in visitor numbers we have witnessed at Yas Mall in 2015. The addition of new flagship stores like Apple and Tryano at the end of last year complimented our existing offerings that include one of the world's largest Debenhams stores; Boutique 1; the world's first UEFA Champions League Experience; House of Fraser; and the Capital's largest VOX Cinemas with 4Dx technology.
By the end of 2015, 96% of our tenants were trading, so now that Yas Mall is fully operational, and based on the very positive feedback we are receiving from our customers, we expect to welcome even more visitors over the next twelve months."
Since opening in November 2014, Yas Mall has provided over 20 million visitors with a distinctive experience that goes well beyond shopping. Bathed in natural light, the wide avenues of Yas Mall host hundreds of the most desirable retail, F&B brands and entertainment offerings, including 83 unique stores and 62 world-class dining outlets. Yas Mall compliments the overall Yas Island experience, which already boasts iconic attractions including Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Waterworld, Yas Links and seven hotels.
