The mall will offer discounted high-end brands merchandise all year round and will feature 25,000 square metres of gross leasable area.

Meraas brought together renowned architects, designers, consultants and top-tier contractors to ensure that The Outlet Village is shaped into a distinctive retail destination emulating the ambiance of San Gimignano.

Aside from hosting some of the world’s most luxurious and contemporary high street fashion brands, The Outlet Village will retail popular sportswear and equipment as well as furniture and household goods at “attractive” prices.
