A new AED600 million ($163 million) expansion of City Centre Ajman is set to open in the fourth quarter of 2017.
The new mall extension will see the addition of more than 10 new stores this year, with several brands making their debut in Ajman.
City Centre Ajman will also become the centre for family gatherings with new international restaurants offering al fresco dining to enjoy the outdoors, a statement said.
Pizza Express, Nando’s, Mado, the Turkish cafe chain and chocolatier Patchi will be among the new offerings as will Starbucks and Canadian multinational fast-food restaurant Tim Hortons.
Retail brands Paris Gallery, Femi9, Annabelle and Okaidi as well as Malabar Gold will also open alongside Max Fashion, value store Daiso and Life Pharmacy.
“With more than 150 stores and food options, we are confident that City Centre Ajman will be the lifestyle destination of choice for residents and tourists in the months to come," said the statement.
As part of the redevelopment project, City Centre Ajman has already expanded VOX Cinemas with more screens including 4DX and specially-designed children’s theatres.
The expansion will be followed by a refurbishment and redesign of the existing mall. The number of car parking spaces will increase from 1,600 to 3,200.
