Majid Al Futtaim inaugurated My City Centre Al Dhait today, marking its first investment in a community and convenience focused retail and services destination for Ras Al Khaimah’s residents and tourists. The new mall will meet the everyday dining, lifestyle and retail needs of the emirate’s fastest-growing communities.
“Today we underscore Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment to delivering a unique retail experience to fast-growing communities around the region with the opening of My City Centre Al Dhait, our first shopping destination in Ras Al Khaimah and the latest addition to the growing My City Centre brand in the UAE,” says Ghaith Shocair, CEO – shopping malls, Majid Al Futtaim – Properties. “We will deliver a diverse retail offering in an accessible location within the expanding residential areas of Ras Al Khaimah. My City Centre Al Dhait will address the daily needs of visitors and the increasing number of tourists in the country’s Northern Emirates.”
The AED68.5 million mall, which has a gross leasable area of 59,135 sqft, houses more than 30 regional and international lifestyle brands. My City Centre Al Dhait is Majid Al Futtaim’s third My City Centre mall in the UAE, a neighbourhood shopping and dining destination created specifically for nearby residential and commercial communities.
Easily accessible due to its proximity to Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, My City Centre Al Dhait offers a vast array of household goods, including fresh produce and bakery items from Carrefour Market. Dining options include the emirate’s first branch of American fast-food chain Popeye’s, Blends & Brews and McDonald’s alongside more extensive menu options at Indian restaurant Gazebo and Iranian cuisine specialist Hatam.
The opening of My City Centre Al Dhait reinforces Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment made in 2016 to increase investments in the UAE by AED30 billion by 2026, taking its total investments in the UAE to AED48 billion.
As part of Majid Al Futtaim’s sustainability strategy, My City Centre Al Dhait follows green building protocol with innovative methods and resource-efficient procedures in place, including collecting condensed water from air-conditioning and ventilations systems to use for irrigation and installing LED lighting and water-saving low-flow fixtures and faucets. The single-storey, 75,350-sqft property meets LEED Gold criteria and its solar-panelled parking bay shades, which incorporate photovoltaic cells, are expected to deliver energy savings of 7.5%.
My City Centre Al Dhait complements Majid Al Futtaim’s additional investments in the Northern Emirates, which include the expansion of both City Centre Ajman and City Centre Sharjah in 2018.
