A sustainable approach to retail

November 28, 2022 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai’s newest lifestyle and shopping destination Silicon Central – under the portfolio of Lulu Group International’s Line Investments & Property LLC – is strategically positioned within the first eco sustainable district in Dubai Silicon Oasis and focused on low carbon footprint and technology.

With a total of 81,500 sqm GLA Silicon Central will offer a broad mix of brands tailored to ensure shopper satisfaction. The innovative design of the Silicon Central project is inspired by the natural movement of the desert sand frame with large internal areas populated by plants, water and natural light, recreating an oasis in the city. Aiming for LEED Platinum certification Silicon Central has paid close attention to create an environmentally friendly project using state-of-the-art technologies for waste management, energy savings and a plethora of sustainable services provided within the mall such as solar charging stations in the car-parking area. It has one of the largest ground mounted solar carports in Dubai.

With 3,500 car park spaces the mall has revealed successful implementation of 1MWp and 4 Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations. The solar rooftop project covers 7,209 sqm and will produce 1.7 GWh of clean energy annually, offsetting more than 1,205 metric tons of CO2 emissions equivalent to nearly 20,000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.

Alongside being sustainable in its design aesthetics the mall has a wide mix of retailers on board including major groups such as Alshaya Group, Brands For Less, Landmark Group, Liwa Trading Enterprises, Sharaf Retail, Step In and more.
