Commenting on the project, H.E Marwan Bin Jassim Al Sarkal, Shurooq CEO, said that the project's features are becoming clearly visible as the developers are working day and night to ensure that the first phase of the project opens during the fourth quarter of this year. He added that a number of facilities and amenities have already been added to the project, and that construction works are nearing completion. Al Sarkal revealed that all the facilities were fully leased, several months ahead of the first phase's completion date. These facilities include a number of luxurious restaurants and cafes, which will open in Sharjah for the first time. Interior decorating has also commenced, with the new tenants preparing to launch on time. Shurooq's CEO added: "We intended, through this project, to develop the retail sector in the emirate by attracting a range of selected international brands such as T.G.I Fridays, Fatburger, Cafe De Roma, Pizarro, Caribou and others. These brands will now open their first branches in Sharjah." He explained that the final plan for the Al Majaz Waterfront includes numerous facilities, which will make the development an integrated family park that will serve as a top destination for tourists, visitors and residents. The project offers open areas designated specifically for children, areas set aside for cultural and entertainment activities, a magnificent mosque with a modern architectural design, special areas for walking, jogging and cycling, a sculpture garden, an arts area for children, a dancing fountain, public amenities, parking for 1,000 vehicles, and sidewalks. The Dh100 million Al Majaz Waterfront is the fruit of Shurooq's labor to encourage investment and tourism in Sharjah, and has been carried out with the aim of constructing a grand leisure park that complies with international standards in cooperation with Sharjah government departments and establishments, as well as international companies. The project is spread over an area of 231.000 square feet with the first phase occupying 121.000 square feet and the second phase extending over 110.000 square feet. The Al Majaz Waterfront is located on the Khalid Lagoon in the heart of one of Sharjah's most vital and popular areas, which is the location for a number of the emirate's most high-profile events, such as the Sharjah Ramadan Festival, the Sharjah Water Festival, the Sharjah Lights Festival and the UIM Formula One Powerboat World Championship - Sharjah Grand Prix.
