UAE-based Moafaq Al Gaddah (MAG) Group has unveiled plans for a new specialist shopping mall to be built in Dubai called the Art Centre. 

The retail centre will specialise in indoor and outdoor building materials and requirements for housing and commercial sectors, including furniture, lighting, kitchens, floors, curtains, carpets, gifts, flowers, wallpaper, decoration, swimming pools, and other related materials.

Construction work on the AED300m project is projected to start within three months and estimated to take around 15 months to reach completion, the company said in a statement.

Art Centre, which will consist of three floors and a basement, will include leasable area of 350,000 sq ft, facilities, halls and parking spaces and will be located in Al Barsha.

Moufak Ahmad Al Kaddah, chairman of MAG Group said: "Art Centre is the first and biggest specialised shopping centre in the region. The aim of Art Centre is to raise the bar higher for the mechanism of marketing and sales in the furniture, and other building-related materials industry."

Mohammad Nimer, CEO of MAG Property Development said the centre is expected to host many well-known national and international brands in the world of furniture and building related materials.

Art Centre will also have facilities such as a business centre, a clinic, a children's play area and free parking, he added.
