Majid Al Futtaim, a leading shopping mall developer, communities, retail, and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia, has officially opened its newest lifestyle and retail experience in the Northern Emirates, the AED2.6 billion ($708 million) City Centre Al Zahia.
Featuring distinct architecture and offering exceptional hospitality options, the City Centre Al Zahia is expected to become a popular destination within the emirate, with art and culture at the heart of the experiences it offers.
The mall will also connect seamlessly to Majid Al Futtaim’s one-million-sq-m residential community, Al Zahia. A short walk away from the new mall, Al Zahia has been envisioned as Sharjah’s premier lifestyle destination and is part of the strategic partnership between Majid Al Futtaim Properties and Sharjah Asset Management.
Majid Al Futtaim said in addition to featuring artistic, social, theatrical and sporting hubs, the mall will feature professional and educational workspaces, as well as a grand plaza offering access to children’s play areas, and an art zone. Additionally, the mall will feature familiar names and popular retailers ranging from the footwear and fashion accessory store, Steve Madden, to Pandora, Centrepoint, and the regionally-beloved Ajmal and Damas, it stated.
Speaking at the opening, Majid Al Futtaim Shopping Malls CEO Shireen El Khatib said: “The only new super-regional mall to be launched in the Mena in the wake of Covid-19, City Centre Al Zahia is a testament to the resolve, commitment and optimistic spirit of Sharjah and the wider northern emirates. An immersive destination designed to bring people together, the mall is an achievement of hope and innovation in the face of adversity.”
