Bidders attend Sharjah mall meetings

14 September 2016

Majid al-Futtaim’s Zahia Mall will have 400 shops

Dubai-based developer Majid Al-Futtaim (MAF) has held meeting with selected bidders to discuss the contract to build its planned  Al-Zahia Mall in Sharjah.

MAF received bids from contractors for the contract to build its Al-Zahia mall development in Sharjah in July.

The 30-month deal involves building a three-level mall, known as Al-Zahia City Centre, on a 183,505-square-metre plot, with space for 400 shops.

The retail area, which will include anchor tenants and department stores, also includes entertainment areas, food courts and restaurants. The total built-up area will be 248,300 sq m.

The work will also involve building a three-level car park with a total built-up area of 135,000 sq m and spaces for 5,200 cars. The structure will be connected to the mall with pedestrian bridges.

Infrastructure works include internal roads, landscaping and utility connections.

The utilities serving the mall will be a 33kV substation and a sewage treatment plant, which will be completed by the contractor on a design-and-build basis.

Flyovers directly connecting to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road in both directions are also planned, and are not included in the mall construction contract.

Al-Zahia is a gated residential community being developed by a joint venture of MAF and the Sharjah government.
