Majid Al Futtaim has launched the new wing of the City Centre Ajman with the addition of more brands and restaurants.

City Centre Ajman has grown from 29,000m2 to 55,672m2 in size as part of the ongoing redevelopment.

Construction has been carried out in line with green building best practice and Majid Al Futtaim’s sustainability strategy.

Energy-efficient design and procedures, including the installation of LED lighting and water-saving, low-flow faucets and fixtures will reduce the mall’s carbon footprint. 

“Since its launch in 1998, City Centre Ajman has continued to evolve and grow. The expansion cements the mall’s status as a regional shopping destination in the emirate,” said Fuad Mansoor Sharaf, managing director for Majid Al Futtaim Properties, Shopping Malls (UAE, Bahrain & Oman).

The mall has boosted parking capacity from 750 parking bays to 1,800 parking spaces – as part of the first phase of its $177m (AED650m) enhancement project.

The mall has also added new toilets, baby changing rooms, and prayer facilities, as well as a bigger Magic Planet entertainment centre in the new wing.

Sharaf said: “We have upgraded this community-centered mall to an all-round shopping, dining and leisure destination with far-reaching appeal in the region, boosting the emirate’s retail economy.

“These improvements have also been undertaken to meet the changing expectations of our customers, who not only turn to us for all the best international brands under one roof but see City Centre Ajman as a destination where they can gather and create great moments with family and friends.

"The new wing, with its modern architecture, bigger stores and al fresco dining options, will offer a truly holistic experience to visitors," he added.
