The expansion of The Galleria Al Maryah Island has opened, bringing the iconic Abu Dhabi retail and dining destination to over 400 shops and 100 restaurants with Vindico celebrating its eight year collaboration with developer, Gulf Related.
The expansion has added over 250 new shops & restaurants to the Galleria’s luxury collection, which opened in 2013, with Vindico’s integrated retail design & delivery solution again forming part of Gulf Related’s successful development formula.
The Vindico team supported Gulf Related with a full retail delivery solution including design and management services through an onsite embedded team, supported by Vindico’s Dubai studio.
“We are extremely proud of how the expansion of The Galleria has opened,” commented Vindico Senior Retail Delivery Manager and Project Lead, Mohammed Sharief. “We have enjoyed navigating the development process with the Gulf Related team and all of the tenants and their suppliers who have brought this building and its brands together for customers to enjoy.”
Vindico worked with international brands including Debenhams, VOX Cinema , Cheesecake Factory, Zara, and H&M and their local licensees, design and fitout suppliers to support the on-time delivery of their new Galleria locations within the complexities of a new development project setting.
“We are honored to have been working with Gulf Related and Mubadala on The Galleria since 2011”, adds Paul Mathews, Vindico’s Chief Operating Officer. “Working with a Client who shares a belief in the importance of getting shops and restaurants open over the many distractions and complications the development process can bring, sustains the type of working relationship we have enjoyed.”
Vindico’s retail delivery solution included a dedicated onsite project team work with its Dubai based studio to optimize speed and quality across the design and fitout phases of the project, ensuring Gulf Related’s tenants and their brands remained focused and supported in achieving the project opening date.
