Majid Al Futtaim has completed the first phase of City Centre Mirdif’s AED335 million ($91.2 million) enhancement project, adding an additional 500 car parking spaces. 

The project, set for completion in early 2018, is part of the mall operator’s commitment to enhance customer experience, the company said in a statement. 

It added that City Centre Mirdif’s parking facilities also feature an innovative parking guidance system that enables arriving guests to easily identify available parking spaces and electronically locate their cars after a trip to the mall. In addition, 500 existing parking spaces have been upgraded.

Once complete, the expansion will add over 1,000 car parking spaces on the new upper deck and new entry and exit points.

City Centre Mirdif’s VOX Cinemas expansion project is scheduled for completion in June 2018. The new complex will include 10 new screens – six new standard and four new THEATRE by Rhodes auditoria – as well as a lounge and public amenities. 

Mohamed Al Jasmi, senior mall manager for City Centre Mirdif - Majid Al Futtaim said: “We are pleased to release phase one of City Centre Mirdif’s AED335 million enhancement project which on completion will add value to the mall’s existing world-class facilities.”

In response to customer feedback, the mall is upgrading and relocating its prayer rooms to the central area of the mall with easy access to the new parking level.

The company said mall operations will continue as normal for all tenants during the ongoing construction period.

The revamp is part of Majid Al Futtaim’s overall UAE strategy announced in June 2016 to open 10 new City Centre destinations, 28 cinemas, 40 Carrefour supermarkets and a 740,000 sq m community, by the end of 2020.
