Set to open April 4 this year, Fujairah City Centre is developed by Majid Al Futtaim and will be the first integrated entertainment and retail centre in the emirate, as well as one of the largest shopping malls in the region.
Located on the intersection of the new Fujairah-Dubai highway and the Masafi Highway at the entrance to Fujairah city, the mall will have a 1,000-space car park, 34,000 sqm of retail space, a multi-screen VOX cinema, a Magic Planet family entertainment centre and scores of food and beverage outlets.
Anchor retail tenants will include Centrepoint, Paris Gallery, Max Fashion and Carrefour (the largest in the emirate), as well as 105 value and mid-market brands, 85 percent of which will be new to Fujairah. The mall, which is in the final stages of construction, is also on-track to obtain a LEED Gold rating for its environmentally friendly design, making it the first building in the emirate to receive this classification.
