“As part of Al Jazira Club’s vision to diversify its investments, the new shopping destination is an important addition to other investment projects which ensures the sustainability and diversity of Al Jazira Club’s portfolio,” adds Mohammed Haji Khouri, chairman of the joint venture.
“City Centre Al Jazira marks a significant investment from Majid Al Futtaim into the UAE capital, driven by Abu Dhabi’s growing and affluent residential market and world-class infrastructure development projects, from transportation to museums,” states Ghaith Shocair, CEO – Shopping Malls, Majid Al Futtaim Properties. “Bringing the City Centre brand of shopping malls to the capital will open the doors to an integrated shopping, lifestyle and entertainment destination for the community and contribute to Abu Dhabi’s vision that aims to develop a competitive, sustainable and globally open economy.”
