Mall of the World is a project to build the largest shopping center of its kind in the world (a project to be scaled back or canceled[1]), which envisions a fully air conditioned city, comprising more than 4,500,000 square metres (48 million square feet). Mall of the World was originally announced in November 2012 and was planned to be the largest shopping mall in the world, to be located in Mohammed bin Rashid City, a mixed-use development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In July 2014, Dubai Holding announced Mall of the World would now be located in Al Sufouh district, along Sheikh Zayed Road. The original plan includes eight million square feet of shopping areas, the largest indoor game park in the world with a dome that can be opened during the winter time, and areas for theaters, cultural events, medical tourism, and about 20,000 hotel rooms. The mall is expected to be able to receive 180 million visitors annually.[2][3][4] The chairman of the project is Dubai Holding CEO, Samer Alhaj.
