Construction work on the $330mn Nakheel Mall on Palm Jumeirah is almost 50% complete.
The 450 million sq ft mall's three underground parking levels, with 4,000 spaces, are nearly complete, with the overall superstructure due to be finished in Q3 this year.
Work is also on track on the mall's VIP entrance and rooftop features, which include two fountains and two waterfalls, Nakheel said.
Nakheel Mall will have five retail levels with 350 shops, restaurants and leisure attractions spread across 1.2 million sq ft of leasable space.
Almost 60% of shop space Nakheel Mall has been booked, with Waitrose, Vox Cinemas, Adidas, Breitling, French Connection and Montblanc amongst the names on board.
Alongside Nakheel Mall will be The Palm Tower - Nakheel's new, five-star, 52-storey hotel and residential complex - for which a separate construction contract was awarded last year.
A St Regis hotel will occupy the first 18 floors, with 504 luxury residences above.
Due for completion in 2018, the tower will also boast a trio of rooftop attractions, with one of the world's highest infinity pools on the 50th floor, a 51st floor restaurant and a viewing deck, 220m above ground, on level 52.
