The Future Of Dubai Retail Market – JLL
The retail market in Dubai began modestly in the 1990s with Burjuman, Al Ghurair Centre and
Deira City Centre being the prominent malls. From that time the retail market has progressed
significantly and toda Du ai is ho e to so e of the o ld’s est

Mall of the Emirates and other impressive developments to make what we call Dubai today.

It has been a long journey from the souks of old Dubai to international standard super regional
malls, and the way this transition has been managed has brought Dubai into the spotlight of

this time from standard malls to more innovative and creative retail developments that aim to
encapsulate the entertainment, leisure, shopping and gastronomic experiences. Some
examples of these more innovative retail concepts are The Beach by Meraas and the recently
announced Mall of the World and Dubai Canal developments. The extension strategies for

Existing retail developments are witnessing this evolution and many have chosen to upgrade
their malls to meet the coming competitive challenges. Burjuman Centre and Wafi Mall are

This change is not just limited to mega retail projects but can also be seen with community
sized retail popping up in proximity to major residential communities to provide consumers
with shopping ease, a sense of community and quick access to goods that serve their everyday
needs. The Mall in Jumeirah is a perfect example of an upcoming upscale community centre
that is aiming to fill this gap in the market.

As developers gain insight into the consumer mind they understand that providing the right
experience in terms of the five senses, customer service, ambience and decor are just as crucial
for customers as the accessibility, parking, location and tenant mix.

Developers will also be forced to distinguish themselves and add character to their retail
projects to create their own place in the market. They need to attract tourists worldwide and
increase retail spend.

spend from around the world, especially from other Middle Eastern countries.
