It has been delivered on schedule, constructed to the highest quality and environmental standards, and is another example of innovation in design and retail planning by the company," said Peter Walichnowski, Chief Executive of Al Futtaim Properties. "Mirdif City Centre is in line with the company's strategy to develop large destination malls in the three most important trade areas of Dubai - Deira City Centre in the heart of Dubai, Mall of the Emirates in the Southern New Dubai area and now Mirdif City Centre to service North Dubai and the Northern Emirates," he added.
