Eagle Hills Sharjah has awarded the contract for the main works for the Kalba Waterfront development in Sharjah to the local MJM Contracting.
The developer said the contract involves the architecture, infrastructure and landscaping of the mall, which is due to open in the second half of 2020.
In April 2018, Eagle Hills Sharjah said it had appointed the local East Coast Contracting & Trading as a contractor for the Kalba Waterfront project. Eagle Hills added at the time that the retail development was due to open in the third quarter of 2019.
Kalba Waterfront will have a total built-up area of 20,000 square metres. It will feature a mix of retail, food and beverage outlets, a waterfront promenade and terraces, a supermarket, a large food court and family entertainment centre.
Eagle Hills Sharjah is a joint venture of Sharjah Investment & Development Authority (Shurooq) and Abu Dhabi-based developer Eagle Hills. In January 2018, it launched three projects in Sharjah including the Kalba scheme.
Maryam Island is the largest of the three projects in terms of both value and area. The AED2.4bn ($654m) mixed-use development will be located between Al-Khan Lagoon and Al-Mamzar in downtown Sharjah.
The other project is the AED120m Palace al-Khan. It is a five-star waterfront resort in the heart of Sharjah city.
