Dubai: Majid Al Futtaim announced on Tuesday its plan to build a new eco-friendly mall in the heart of Masdar City in Abu Dhabi.
Dubbed My City Centre Masdar, the project is part of the company’s Dh30 billion investment strategy in the UAE. It will cost Dh300 million to build and will be one of the world’s most sustainable urban developments.
Scheduled to open by the end of next year, the proposed retail destination will have easy access to planned smart public transport options including buses, light rail transit (LRT) lines and the metro network.
“[The mall] will be served by integrated transport links, including an Abu Dhabi Metro line running along the main boulevard with a station situated next to the mall, within easy walking distance,” Majid Al Futtaim, which has 20 shopping malls in its portfolio, said in a statement. More info
