Retail at the heart of Yas Island

Establishing a new standard for Middle East retail centers, Yas Mall builds on the deep traditions of the world’s greatest shopping streets and civic spaces while also creating a bold design language unique to the region. The design for Yas Mall defines a series of distinct urban neighborhoods that support an overarching merchandise strategy and provide tenants with a wealth of spaces to choose from, including double-height stores, value retail and high-end venues. The interior spaces, encompassing avenues, streets, boulevards, and squares, each have their own design personality and tenant mix, bringing scale and visual interest to the scheme while also enhancing circulation, navigation and orientation throughout the 345,000 square meter centre. A system of light-filled interior malls links the neighbourhoods, ensuring that all elements of Yas Mall work together and that shoppers can easily explore everything the retail center has to offer. SESC worked as commissioning engineers for the project on behalf of the owner/operator Aldar Properties PJSC. Our role was to ensure all stores, outlets, and public spaces within the mall were operating at the required levels to ensure the continuation of the facilities 2 pearl Estidama rating.
