East Coast Contracting and Trading has been appointed as the main contractor for the Dh160-million ($44 million) Kalba Waterfront project by Eagle Hills Sharjah, a leading master developer of residential, hospitality, retail and lifestyle communities.

Kalba Waterfront, set to open in the third quarter of 2019, is one of three major developments, alongside Maryam Island and Palace Al Khan, which represent Eagle Hills’ venture into Sharjah. Worth a total of Dh2.7 billion ($735 million), the trio of projects are the result of a joint venture between Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and Eagle Hills, an Abu Dhabi-based private real estate investment and development company.

Kalba Waterfront covers a gross floor area of 17,000 sq m and offers a gross leasing area of 11,200 sq m within the Kalba Eco-Tourism Project. Overlooking the Kalba lagoon, it will offer a serene and beautiful environment for all visitors to enjoy, while also providing a practical, service-oriented hub that caters to the needs of the local community.

The mall will feature 86 retail outlets including a wide variety of dining options, a choice of top fashion brands, and well-known supermarket chains, as well as a large indoor dining area, a children’s play area, a family entertainment centre, and a park surrounding the lagoon.
