Sobha Realty, a leading real estate developer has commenced construction of a mall in Dubai’s Sobha Hartland community, costing $57.2 million (AED 210 million). The mall will cover approximately 339,000 square feet, with a gross leasable area of 115,000 square feet. It will include amenities like a supermarket, gym, play courts, soft play/entertainment zone, and various restaurants, and will house 35 retail shops and F&B outlets, with over 10 unique dining options.

The mall will also be designed keeping sustainability in mind, incorporating features such as greenery, water elements, natural lighting, energy-efficient lighting, solar panels, and green building materials.

Furthermore, the mall will showcase an array of distinctive architectural features. These include a dynamic bowl with a cascading void spanning from the basement to the roof, ensuring a compelling retail experience. Additionally, a strategically placed media screen on the facade will enhance visibility. The biophilic design incorporates green walls, water elements, floating pods, and natural lighting to create a tranquil environment. The skylight roof will enable natural light to brighten the interior and nurture plant growth.

Delighted on the unveiling of the mall, Ravi Menon, Co-Chairman of Sobha Group, stated, “The project underscores our vision to create integrated and community-focused spaces that seamlessly combine convenience while offering multi-tier retail stores, gourmet dining and diverse entertainment options. Beyond a retail space, the mall is designed to be a pivotal hub for community engagement that offers an ideal blend of nature, culture and recreation that will elevate the living quotient of community members and visitors.”

Scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2026, the project marks Sobha Realty’s entry into the UAE retail sector.
