Overview

The Mirdiff City Centre project was announced in April 2007 with construction beginning in August 2007. Mirdiff City Centre is similar in size to the Mall of the Emirates. It comprises 3,116,451 sq ft (289,527.8 m2) of gross floor area spread over a service basement level and 1st floor, and 180,000 square metres of shopping space. Mirdif City Centre offers roughly the same gross leasable area as Mall of the Emirates, the first mall with an attached indoor ski slope. The mall includes 7,000 car parking spaces and 430 retail outlets, including Carrefour, the world's second largest retailer.

It was expected that the centre will attract 18-20 million shoppers annually, compared to approximately 21 million in Deira City Centre, 25 million in Mall of the Emirates.[4] and over 37 million in Dubai Mall.[5] although during the first year of its operation Mirdiff City Centre attracts 20 Million visitors.[6]

According to Walich-nowski, the mall is estimated to have created over 16,000 jobs in the development and construction process and 5,500 permanent jobs in the mall complex. The mall aims to serve a population of 450,000 within a 10-kilometre radius along with the communities across the rest of Dubai and other emirates and tourist footfall. Mirdif City Centre is also set to be the first shopping centre in the Middle East to achieve a gold rating for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.[3]

Features

The mall contains about 430 shops with adjacent 3 level parking for over 7000 cars, a Magic Planet Entertainment zone which will contain a sky diving experience as well as indoor 5-a-side football pitches. In addition the mall will contain 8 standard and 2 'gold-class' cinemas and a number of leading retailers such as Debenhams, Zara, Home Centre, Paris Gallery, Virgin Megastores and a gym with pool, two food courts with about 60 different eating outlets, cafes, restaurants, a Carrefour hypermarket, a 10 screen cinema complex, an outside cinema, and an "iFly" indoor skydiving center.
