As its renovation project nears completion, Dubai shopping mall, BurJuman, is looking to grow its retail offerings.
Under the watchful eye of its new COO, Leigh Regan, BurJuman’s North Wing renovation includes a larger entertainment area for families, a cinema complex and rest lounges, as well as better and more seating options throughout the mall.
According to the Jones Lang LaSalle’s City Momentum Index Q1 2014 report, Dubai ranks third on its Global Top 20 list. The index takes into account each city’s short-term socio-economic and commercial real estate momentum analysed over a three-year period.
“It is important for malls in Dubai to restructure their focus in line with the upswing in Dubai’s retail growth at large. In the wake of developments and transformations that Dubai is witnessing in the current times, such change is possible and essential,” says Majid Al Ghurair, president of BurJuman.
