A $1bn (£635.9m) shopping centre developed by Gulf Related that is larger than any equivalent urban centre in Europe is due to open in August.

The 2.85 million sq ft Abu Dhabi-Sowwah Central development will feature luxury shops and restaurants. The Galleria, a 550,000 sq ft space within the complex, is 100% leased and will house fashion brands Burberry and Dior.
