Abu Dhabi’s luxury retail and leisure destination, The Galleria Mall at Al Maryah Island is the pinnacle of elegant design. Stationed overlooking the beautiful waterfront on the grounds of Sowwah Square, the chic development houses an impressive concentration of high-end restaurants and shops unprecedented in the Middle East and North Africa. Over 100 luxury brands occupy The Galleria’s 33,000 square-meters at the base of the Securities Exchange Building. The center’s striking design mirrors the allure and sophistication of its cosmopolitan tenants, providing an inspiring backdrop to enhance the visitor experience and compliment the elegance and style of the Sowwah Square leisure district.
The project has been recognised with a number of international honours including: ‘Best International Retail and Leisure Destination’ at the Global Retail Leisure International Awards; the accolade for Design & Development and Public Relations Excellence at the 2014 International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Middle East and North Africa Shopping Centers and Retailer Awards; the Divine Detail Award of Merit on behalf of the AIA Middle East and the GCC Hospitality and Leisure Project of the Year Award from Middle East Architect magazine.
