The Fujairah City Centre and the Colourful Fujairah Flavour

Update, 21/9/11

The new walls around the site of what will become the Fujairah City Centre must be the brightest and most colourful of any construction site in Fujairah.

In view of the blandness and sameness that afflicts too many malls around the world one hopes that the forthcoming Fujairah City Centre will be colourful, distinctive and expressive of the unique local flavour on the UAE’s East Coast.
