City Centre Deira, Dubai, UAE, first opened its doors in November 1995. At the time, it virtually redefined the concept of "malls" for the region. As the first large-scale, mixed-use shopping destination, complete with retail outlets, restaurants, entertainment facilities and a hotel, City Centre Deira created an international dimension for one-stop shopping and entertainment for the Middle East, bringing it to an entirely new level. City Centre Deira encompasses over 123,028 square meters of retail space and features over 371 retail stores and services. Its entertainment facilities include Magic Planet, one of the region's most popular indoor family entertainment centres; VOX Cinemas, a 20-screen cinema multiplex with 3,000 seats. The Centre also provides direct access to the 5-star City Centre Hotel & Residence, managed by Pullman. The Centre also features the MAF Tower, an 11-storey office building. City Centre Deira is one of the flagship malls within the Majid Al Futtaim Properties portfolio and ranks as one of the most successful shopping malls in the world. With average annual footfall traffic in excess of 22 million, City Centre Deira remains one of the region's most visited destinations for both residents and tourists alike.
