Time Out Dubai takes a look inside Dubai's newest mega-mall
Time Out Dubai Staff
A new mall is just what Dubai needs. That's what we think at Time Out Towers anyway. Which is why we were delighted to get a first look around the newly opened Mirdif City Centre this morning. First indication is that it is pretty good. The Dhs3billion could become one of the city's mega-malls and with more than 400 shops, an indoor skydiving centre and a new food court to explore there is plenty to keep mallwalkers busy for weekends to come. Buy Time Out Dubai's April 1-8 issue in a couple of weeks to see our first official review of the store. Until then, happy shopping...
Mirdif City Centre, a new shopping mall in Dubai, is on track to open on March 16 next year, developer Majid Al Futtaim (MAF) has said.

Over 90 percent of the mall’s retailers are on schedule to open their stores on the first day of business.
In a sign that non-retail attractions are increasingly important for Dubai’s shopping malls, Mirdif City Centre will include a 25,000 sq m entertainment area, featuring iFLY Dubai, an indoor sky-diving centre; Soccer Circus, an interactive football attraction; and Aquaplay, a water-based recreation facility.
The mall will have a gross leasable area of 196,000 sq m, which will house 430 stores.
Anchor stores include Carrefour, Cinestar Cinemas, Debenhams, Emax, Centrepoint and Home Centre.
