A City Center with a full program of social adn commercial activities, bracketed by arts, a catalyst for urban growth.
Ibn Battuta Mall is an existing 1 million SF mall, expanding to a 3-million SF site. Its uses will be modeled on a City Center with a richly detailed and full program of social and commercial activities bracketed by arts, culture, and religious (mosques, gardens) structures with a central pivotal activity being education and research.
The entire new area will be networked with pedestrians, cars, and public transport, which connect to the new train station to the east of the complex. Because of the volume of people anticipated and to reduce the number of vehicles to the site, this network is comprehensive and easily accessible.
