Mall of the Emirates
The Mall of the Emirates is a shopping mall in the Al Barsha district of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It was developed by Majid Al Futtaim Properties under the leadership of its CEO, Peter Walichnowski, who was also the developer of " Bluewater" near London, Europe's most successful shopping mall. The mall was designed by the American architectural firm, F+A Architects. Prior to the opening of the Dubai Mall (the world's largest mall), the Mall of the Emirates was the second largest shopping mall in the Middle East, slightly smaller than City Stars mall. It contains approximately 2,400,000 square feet (223,000 m 2) of shops and the entire mall forms a total of approximately 6,500,000 square feet (604,000 m 2). on September 1, 2010 the new extension to the mall will open, adding more than 40 luxury stores. In a global perspective, the World's second largest shopping mall, the South China Mall in Dongguan, China, contains approximately 7,100,000 square feet (660,000 m 2) of shopping space in a complex that totals approximately 9,600,000 square feet (892,000 m 2).

Although it features the usual amenities for a mall (a fourteen-screen movie theatre, a gaming arena, a typical variety of stores, and a drama theatre), its biggest claim to fame is the Middle East's first indoor ski slope, Ski Dubai. With the ski area, one of the largest in the world, the Mall of the Emirates seeks to differentiate itself from the dozen or so other newly completed malls in Dubai and the surrounding emirates. Half of the mall opened in September 2005, then officially opened in late November 2005 with the inauguration of the ski area, although it had already been in operation for several weeks. The mall is connected by a Dubai Metro Station ( Mall of the Emirates Station) on the Red Line. Stores include:
