Al Majaz Waterfront draws 250k visitors
Seven new restaurants and cafes overlooking Sharjah Fountain opened to public
Al Majaz Waterfront, which is the latest leisure and tourism destination in Sharjah and a project of the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), has attracted a huge turnout of visitors in the first months of its opening. The waterfront boasts seven new restaurants and cafes that overlook the Sharjah Fountain, most of which opened their branches in Sharjah for the first time. These restaurants include T.G.I Friday's, Pizzaro, Fat Burger, Baja Fresh, Caribou Coffee, Tim Hortons café and Cold Stone. Plans are underway to open more restaurants and cafes, namely Zahr El Laymoun Restaurant, Al Manazeh and Café De Roma, scheduled for opening by the end of this month. The Waterfront also boasts covered areas for entertainment and cultural activities, green spaces, a distinguished mosque, kiosks for snacks and soft drinks, walking areas, public utilities and huge parking lots. Al Majaz Waterfront, Shurooq's debut project, is situated in the Emirate's most vital and commercial district on the picturesque Khalid Lagoon, between Jamal Abdul Nasser Street and the Khalid Lagoon Corniche, a highly populated area with an estimated population of 100,000. Shurooq had begun work on the construction of this project in mid 2010 with the aim of developing a leisure and tourism destination of choice benchmarked with the highest standards, in collaboration with various government departments and establishments, as well as with leading international companies.
