The project will also include shaded parking for 430 vehicles on the mall’s rooftop through the use of photovoltaic panels — the mall’s energy and water consumption is expected to be 40% lower than comparable buildings.

Ghaith Shocair, CEO of shopping malls at Majid Al Futtaim Properties, said: “We are proud to announce the development of ‘My City Centre Masdar’, which promises to create great moments for everyone, everyday, for communities living and working in Masdar City.
“We are honoured to partner with Masdar City and salute their vision which is aligned with Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment to sustainability.”
