Sustaining the growth momentum set, Emaar Malls recorded a net profit of AED 458 million (US$ 125 million) during the second-quarter (April to June) of 2016, an 11 percent growth over the same period last year at AED 412 million (US$ 112 million).

Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Malls, said: “Our exceptional portfolio of malls assets has redefined Dubai’s retail sector and contributes significantly to the city’s economy. Our focus has been to offer unprecedented retail choices for our visitors in truly world-class environments. Emaar Malls assets serve as a magnet for visitors from across the world, especially high net worth individuals who now regard Dubai as their go-to destination for luxury retail.

“We are now taking the growth of Emaar Malls to the next level to create long-term value for our stakeholders through the ambitious new Retail District in Dubai Creek Harbour, which will be linked directly to the iconic tower that will welcome visitors from around the world.”

He added: “The robust growth of Emaar Malls during the first-half of the year highlight Dubai’s premier position as a global hub for luxury retail and world-class leisure attractions led by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. We will continue to build on this momentum, and support the city’s core sectors of tourism and hospitality through innovative and creative approaches to strengthen our malls business.” 

Overall gross leasable area (GLA) occupancy across the assets of Emaar Malls remained 96 percent during the first half of 2016, similar to the previous year. Emaar Malls has distributed a cash dividend of 10 percent of the share capital, equivalent to AED 1.3 billion (US$ 354 million), setting a new benchmark in value creation for the company’s shareholders.

In addition to the new Retail District in the Dubai Creek Harbour Emaar Malls is expanding The Dubai Mall’s Fashion Avenue by 1 million sq ft built up area to deliver over 600,000 sq ft gross leasable area, in addition to plans for the mall’s Boulevard, Fountain Views and Zabeel expansions.

Dubai Hills Estate, the 11 million sq. m master-planned community easily accessible from Mohammed bin Zayed and Sheikh Zayed Road, will also feature a centrally located mall and community retail areas as well as a boutique mall for high-end brands.

Emaar Malls is also developing the Springs Village with over 245,000 sq ft gross leasable area in addition to expanding its community malls brand, ‘The Souk.’ The first under the portfolio - The Ranches Souk in Arabian Ranches II – is today a thriving community retail centre. ‘The Souk’ is being rolled out across its existing assets including The Meadows and The Springs and future community malls projects.
