Mall of the World, a temperature-controlled pedestrian city in Dubai that will be the largest domed city

Dubai has a project to develop the world’s largest mall (8 million square feet or 183 acres), largest indoor park, cultural theatres and wellness resorts with a capacity to host over 180 million visitors annually.

Dubai Holding plans to build the world’s largest domed city: Mall of the World, in Dubai. The temperature-controlled city (also a first) will occupy a total area of 48 million square feet — the largest indoor theme park in the world. It will be covered by a glass dome that will be open during the winter months.

The project will also house the largest shopping mall in the world, with an area of 8 million sq. ft. in the form of a temperature-controlled covered retail street network spreading over 7 kilometers. It will also include 20,000 hotel rooms catering to all types of tourists, and a cultural district with theaters built around New York’s Broadway, Ramblas Street in Barcelona, and London’s Oxford Street.
