A $175m renovation and expansion programme for Majid Al Futtaim’s City Centre Ajman will be completed by 2019 as the company continues its major investment plans in the Northern Emirates.
The expansion is part of the company’s plan to increase its total investment in the UAE by $8.1bn (AED30bn) by 2026, the company said in a statement.
Set to grow from 29,000 to 55,300m2 in size upon completion, upgrades to the exting mall will include public areas and facilities, including toilets, baby changing area, and prayer rooms.
The expansion will also include an extension to the parking facility with the addition of 1,800 spaces.
Fuad Mansoor Sharaf, managing director for Majid Al Futtaim Properties, Shopping Malls (UAE, Bahrain & Oman), said: “The new wing at City Centre Ajman, which features more than 50 international brands and dining concepts, is set to revolutionise the emirate's retail landscape.
“We are proud to bring 14 world-class brands that make their debut in Ajman, underscoring our continued leadership in the retail sector. We've listened carefully to our fashion-conscious customers."
Among brands making their Ajman debut are Inglot, Lush, Garage and US Polo, he added.
Major F&B outlets including Nando’s, Mado café, and Pizza Express have opened in Ajman for the first time as part of the expansion.
City Centre Ajman’s expansion project complements Majid Al Futtaim’s additional investments in the Northern Emirates, which includes the recent opening of My City Centre Al Dhait in Ras Al Khaimah and the expansion of City Centre Sharjah in 2018.
