Al-Futtaim has revealed its upcoming lifestyle facility in Jebel Ali will be called Festival Plaza.

The retail project is scheduled to open in Q4 2019, following its ground-breaking ceremony in March 2017.

Festival Plaza has been named to align with Al-Futtaim’s existing Festival City Malls brand.

Festival Plaza will have 64,800m² of leasable space, 100 shops, a food court, a hypermarket, entertainment units, and café-style dining options. Two of the biggest announcements so far have been a concept store each for Ikea and Al-Futtaim ACE.

Group director of retail malls at Al-Futtaim, Timothy Earnest, said Festival Plaza would become a “major urban lifestyle destination”.

He added: “Since we broke ground last year, we have received a hugely positive response from residents and keen interest from retail groups both internationally and in the UAE, and are very much looking forward to welcoming them.”

The development will be located inside the master-planned community, Wasl Gate. Its location has been chosen so that it is the close to both Abu Dhabi and Dubai, with easy access to Sheikh Zayed Road, Arabian Business reported.
