Aldar announced on Wednesday that Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi has welcomed over 20 million people since its opening in November 2014, with 18 million visiting in 2015.
The developer said in a statement that by the end of 2015, 96 percent of tenants were trading, adding that it expected to see even more visitors over the next 12 months.
The shopping mall includes 62 dining outlets and compliments the overall Yas Island experience, which already boasts iconic attractions including Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Waterworld, Yas Links and seven hotels.
Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, CEO at ALDAR Properties, said: “I am very pleased with the growth in visitor numbers we have witnessed at Yas Mall in 2015.
“The addition of new flagship stores like Apple and Tryano at the end of last year complimented our existing offerings that include one of the world’s largest Debenhams stores, Boutique 1, the world’s first UEFA Champions League Experience, House of Fraser and the capital’s largest VOX Cinemas with 4Dx technology.
“Now that Yas Mall is fully operational, and based on the very positive feedback we are receiving from our customers, we expect to welcome even more visitors over the next 12 months.”
