Ghaith Shocair, Chief Executive Officer – Shopping Malls, Majid Al Futtaim Properties commented; “Majid Al Futtaim has a long standing presence in Egypt, which started 15 years ago with the introduction of Carrefour, City Centre Maadi and City Centre Alexandria. In-line with our vision of creating great moments for everyone everyday, today we are proud to open the doors of Mall of Egypt, bringing snow to the city through Ski Egypt as well as featuring an array of exclusive international brands and innovative leisure and entertainment concepts of VOX Cinemas, Magic Planet and Little Explorer introduced for the first time in the Egyptian market. Mall of Egypt, Majid Al Futtaim’s second “Mall of” flagship shopping mall, will set the same precedent as its sister brand, Mall of the Emirates in the UAE bringing unmatched experiences to North Africa. Egypt is an important market for Majid Al Futtaim and launching mega projects like Mall of Egypt re-affirms our strong belief in the vast opportunities available in the Egyptian market.”

 

Since the launch of Mall of the Emirates eleven years ago, Majid Al Futtaim has been a leader in the creation of superior retail, leisure and entertainment destinations across the region, launching successful “Mall of” concepts such as the upcoming Mall of Saudi and Mall of Oman. Mall of Egypt is expected to create more than 41,000 direct and indirect job opportunities since commencement of its construction. As part of the company’s commitment to community and infrastructure development, Majid Al Futtaim invested more than AED 70 million to develop the surrounding road network over an area of approximately 10 km, to provide safe entrances and exits to mall visitor and alleviate the traffic in the neighbourhood.

 

Mall of Egypt’s unique retail mix is not the only aspect that makes it stand-out in the market. The mall’s environmentally-friendly design and innovative architectural concepts is an excellent example of Majid Al Futtaim’s leading sustainability model and the good progress the company is making towards fulfilling its objective of setting and meeting international best practice standards.

 

Mall of Egypt is working closely with the relevant local partners to develop, implement and maintain its sustainability strategy, which includes developing environmental data management system in order to effectively measure, monitor and enhance the efficiency achieved in managing energy, water and waste.

 

In line with Majid Al Futtaim’s best sustainable practices, Mall of Egypt aligned with the respective standards of the Gold Certification in Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design. The eco-friendly structure will be similar to other leading destinations in the region such as; City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Fujairah and City Centre Beirut.

 

The mall has also considered a wide range of sustainability features to not only reduce its environmental impacts but also appeal to the sustainability sensibilities of a range of stakeholders including tenants that want to operate from a sustainable mall and customers who want to shop in one.

 

The Majid Al Futtaim shopping mall portfolio has become world-renowned for innovation within the shopping mall, retail, design and construction industries; creating an integrated retail and leisure environment that provides great moments for everyone every day.
