A new development plans to open the world's biggest mall and a park larger than London's Hyde Park. The plan also features new residential areas, although the emirate continues to have a surplus of units built during a five-year bubble which burst in 2009. The "Mall of the World" will have a capacity of 80 million visitors a year to become the "largest in the world," said the statement, while its park will be "30 per cent bigger than Hyde Park of London." The mall will be connected to a family entertainment center to be developed in cooperation with Universal Studios International that will be the largest in the region, aiming to attract six million visitors a year. The emirate already has countless malls and hotels, including the Dubai Mall, touted as the world's largest shopping, leisure and entertainment destination, with 62 million visitors this year. The Mall of the World, part of the planned Mohammad Bin Rashid City, may cost an estimated $2722. The mall is expected to attract a mix of international retail brands from China, India and the Far East as well as interest from UK and Europe and food and beverage outlets from the US. The mall is planned for the long-term when online shopping is catching up in the region
