The AED 300 million community project – Majid Al Futtaim’s first shopping mall in Abu Dhabi and its 25th in the region – is a flagship mixed-used development with sustainability at its core.
This new mall is located inside Masdar, close to the IRENA building. This new destination features 18,500 sqm of gross leasable area, including a 7,000 sqm Carrefour Hypermarket and dining options for Masdar City residents, surrounding communities.

CARREFOUR’s 100TH STORE
Featuring sustainably sourced wood, a range of locally-grown produce and a commitment to reducing single-use plastic bag usage, by being the first hypermarket in the UAE not to offer them at the cash counters.
We also noticed beside the supermarket entrance a machine that rewards visitors with discount coupons when you insert a minimum of 2 empty PET containers.
The sustainable features this new mall has to offer
The mall’s 600 car parking bays are shaded by roofing housing photovoltaic cells, generating electricity equivalent to one-fifth of the mall’s annual energy usage.
Six percent of parking has been set aside for electric, hybrid or carshare vehicles – and half of these spaces are equipped with charging points.
The mall plans to recycle at least 80 percent of its operational waste. Sustainability-focused features include energy-efficient escalators and lifts, and the exclusive use of LED lighting that was used during the basic elements of construction and inside shop interiors.
Additionally, all the materials used during construction were manufactured within 500 km traveling distance of the project site.
Sustainability features such as these were integral to My City Centre Masdar’s achievement of Abu Dhabi’s Estidama Three Pearl rating, a benchmarking measure equivalent to the LEED Gold rating for exceptional performance in energy and water conservation.
