Designed by a consortium comprising Safdie Architects, led by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie, as well as architects from RSP Architects Planners and Engineers and Benoy, Jewel will feature a distinctive dome-shaped façade made of glass and steel. The concept for Jewel’s design represents the juxtaposition of a park and marketplace. This is exemplified in the lush Forest Valley and majestic Rain Vortex that take centerstage in the complex, surrounded by over 280 retail stores and eateries.

Described as a multi-dimensional tourist destination, Jewel is due to open on April 17 2019.
