Dubai Holding and Emaar Properties have announced the launch of Dubai Square, a new retail metropolis in Dubai, UAE, that will “push the boundaries of modern retail and leisure by drawing on next-generation technology”.

Adjacent to Dubai Creek Tower, the new global icon, it represents a 2.6-million square metre (about 30 million square feet) retail, hospitality and residential destination.

The size of over 100 football pitches - with 750,000 square metres (8.07 million sq ft) of gross floor retail space – Dubai Square will also be home to the Middle East's largest of its kind Chinatown.

Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties, said: “Focused on the aspirations of the new generation of customers, Dubai Square will play a pivotal role in further establishing Dubai as the next champion of global retail.
