BurJuman shopping mall in Dubai is set to carry out an extensive facelift to its north wing.

The renovations will increase the facility's total retail space to 92,904m² from its existing area of 74,323m².

Work will include extending and architecturally unifying the mall's physical area and adding new anchor tenants, including a grocery store and a multiplex cinema on the fourth floor.

The third floor family entertainment section will undergo an expansion to feature an extended food court that will connect directly to the Pavilion Gardens in the southern part of the building.

The structure's exterior entrance in the northern portion will also be revamped with an al fresco dining area added to the segment.

The project will be carried out in phases and is expected to be rolled out within 18-24 months with the structural work due to begin by the last quarter of 2011.
