Amana Steel Contracting has begun works as main contractor on My City Centre Masdar after the ground-breaking was officially announced by developer Majid Al Futtaim (MAF).
The $93 million My City Centre Masdar is set to open in Q2 2019. It features more than 77 stores across 18,800 sqm of gross leasable area (GLA), including a 5,793 sqm Carrefour Hypermarket and a variety of dining options for both residents and professionals within Masdar City and the surrounding communities. When complete, My City Centre Masdar will be the largest MAF community mall in the UAE.
It will also be MAF’s first shopping mall in Abu Dhabi, noted Ghaith Shocair, CEO of Shopping Malls at Majid Al Futtaim – Properties.
“My City Centre Masdar will exemplify leadership in sustainable design and operation, in line with Masdar City and the UAE capital’s long-term sustainability goals,” he said.
Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, chief executive of Masdar, Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company congratulated MAF on the ground-breaking of the project.
“Masdar teams have provided expert guidance throughout the design process to their counterparts at Majid Al Futtaim to support the realisation of a project that is both aesthetically pleasing and fully compliant with the strict sustainability criteria of Masdar City, which in turn reflect the ‘Estidama’ framework for sustainable buildings and communities in the emirate of Abu Dhabi,” added Al Ramahi. “My City Centre Masdar will encourage other developers to push the envelope for low-carbon real estate. At the same time, it will be an anchor destination within the growing community of Masdar City.”
