My City Centre [MCC] is located inside Masdar City, one of the world’s most sustainable urban communities and a low-carbon development. The new destination features 18,500 Sqm. of gross leasable area, including a 7,000 Sqm. Carrefour Hypermarket and dining options for Masdar City residents and surrounding communities. The mall’s 600 car parking bays are shaded by a roof, housing photovoltaic cells, generating electricity equivalent to one-fifth of the mall’s annual energy usage. Following the highest sustainability standards, MCC will stand out as a progressive hotspot in the city of Abu Dhabi and serve as the community's location of choice for their everyday shopping and lifestyle needs.
Masdar City, a global leading sustainable development, is designed and built to consume up to 40 per cent lower water and energy compared to an average building development in Abu Dhabi. This level of efficiency is only achievable through the use of high-performance thermal insulation. Moreover, each building must meet a minimum 3-Pearl rating according to the Estidama Pearl Building Rating System. Administered by the Abu Dhabi Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), a 3-Pearl Estidama rating is comparable to the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold international green building certification.
