Majid Al Futtaim, a leading shopping mall developer and retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, said work is progressing as per schedule on its first shopping mall in Abu Dhabi, My City Centre Masdar, and on track for opening in Q2.

My City Centre Masdar’s construction has created 1,500 new employment opportunities in its build-out phase and over 2,000 new jobs after opening, it stated.

My City Centre Masdar will feature more than 70 stores across 18,500 sq m of gross leasable area, including a 7,000 sq m Carrefour Hypermarket and a variety of dining options for both residents and professionals within Masdar City and surrounding communities.

"As we progress on developing our first mall in Abu Dhabi, My City Centre Masdar underscores Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment to the capital’s retail sector in line with Masdar City and the UAE’s long-term sustainability goals," remarked Ghaith Shocair, the chief executive of shopping malls at Majid Al Futtaim – Properties.
