Deira City Center shopping mall Dubai

Deira City Centre (DCC) is a large MAF Group shopping mall on the Deira side of Dubai Creek, similar in size and layout to the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai (another MAF Group shopping mall). Diera City Center (DCC?) includes a Carrefour hypermarket, movie theatre complex, Magic Planet entertainment area for children, a crowded food court especially on weekends, and a car park that takes a long time to exit at busy times.

  • Deira City Centre opening date in November 1996? DCC was the first of the Majid Al Futtaim Group shopping malls to open in Dubai.
  • Parking is free for the first 4 hours on weekdays, and all day on Fridays, Saturdays, and public holidays. Parking fees are 20 dhs per hour from 4-7 hours, 100 dhs for 7-8 hrs, 150 dhs for more than 8 hours, or 350 dhs if left overnight (as of December 2010). Car park open from 0600-0200 daily.

Deira City Center expansion 2013
  • 18 Nov 2013: Some reports about the Sharjah City Center said DCC "... is currently undergoing a Dhs22 billion redevelopment." Presumably that's a typo rather than a thousand-fold increase in the amount being spent on expansion (AED 22 billion is enough to build a small town).
  • 23 Apr 2013: DCC is expanding ... again? Or another report about the 2012 expansion? Project value given as AED 22 million, to be completed by Aug 2013. Refurbishment includes reconstruction the center court to be completed by end May 2013, Dubai metro access development, and changes to the food court area.
