In its Retail Focus Research Report for Autumn of 2015, Knight Frank (KF) noted that the total Gross Lettable Area (GLA) of shopping mall space in Dubai should grow from the current level of just over 2mn square metres to 3.3mn square metres in 2018 and 2019 to 5mn in 2020. KF considers that the expansion is being characterised by a move towards regional and super regional malls.
