Mall of Arabia is a shopping mall planned to be built as part of the City of Arabia in the Dubailand theme park premises in Dubai. Original announcements said it would be completed in 2008.[1] Following the collapse of the Dubai real-estate market, the first phase will not open until 2013.[1] The mall would have housed fast-food restaurants such as McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, Taco Bell, Domino's Pizza, Dunkin' Donuts, TGI Friday's, Pizza Hut, Subway, Krispy Kreme, Costa Coffee and Caffé Nero.

It was announced by the Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group and was to include leisure and entertainment facilities, a theatre stage, and feature an ancient Middle Eastern exterior. Its planned Phase 1 has a gross leasable area of 6,000,000 sq ft (560,000 m2); however, if all phases are completed, it might have a final gross leasable area of 50,000,000 sq ft (4,600,000 m2), which would surpass the South China Mall in Dongguan, China, and the SM Mall of Asia in Manila, Philippines as the world's largest shopping mall.[2] Its plans show five levels of retail and entertainment, rooftop hotels and numerous leisure facilities. The plans call for 15,000 covered car park spaces in its first phase.

In August 2005 the Starbucks Coffee Co. of Seattle, Washington announced that the world's largest Starbucks cafe was to be built in the center court of the mall, symbolizing the Middle East's long association with coffee and the expanding business partnership between Starbucks and the growing Dubai marketplace.
